Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:

  • We have tons of content. In fact, since November 2011, I've published more than 26,000 posts on thousands of different business ideas and opportunities.
  • We don't sell much advertising. In late 2013, I realized that by selling advertising, what I was really selling was my readers. In 2014, I've already radically cut down on the number of ads and will hopefully keep cutting.

Duke University:

Duke sophomore Bryan Silverman, a finalist to become Entrepreneur Magazine’s “College Entrepreneur of 2012,” can tell you the many jokes he’s heard about his newly launched business.

“People say ‘what a crappy idea’ and things like that” when he offers to advertise their businesses on rolls of toilet paper. “But once they get through cracking jokes, they usually love it.”

Yes, that’s correct: Advertising on toilet paper. Silverman and his brother Jordan have convinced restaurants, a bowling alley, a car wash and others to do just that on rolls of bathroom tissue, which they are offering for free to venues that would otherwise have to pay to supply their restroom stalls. The brothers hire a manufacturer to print the ads with a soybean-based ink, which they’ve tested for safety.
