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.

Stepping Stones


Holmen businessman Mike Niles calls his new business venture Computer Plastics Recycled, or CPR, a name that fittingly describes what Niles is doing with discarded computer and television cases — breathing new life into old plastic.

In the present computer-based world, people buy many different versions of personal computers during their lifetimes. Many people buy new technology each time there is an advance. So what happens to the plastic when those computers and TVs are discarded?

Now some are getting new lives as garden stepping stones, thanks to Niles. The recycled product, called Super Stone, was created with environmental preservation in mind. Niles’ new company takes the hard plastic cases, chops them down into half-inch pieces, then processes them into functional landscape stones.
