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.

The Dallas Morning News:

Thanks to James Bond and Sex and the City, the martini glass is a chic pop- culture symbol. But for Renee Williams, the drink brings to mind something far-from-stylish: spills.

Not anymore. Last month, Williams launched Sipatiniz, a line of spill-resistant martini glasses.

“About two years ago, I started noticing that people carrying martini glasses were spilling their drinks,” says Williams.

“I was watching Donny Deutsch on The Big Idea. He said, if you see a problem without an answer, you’re probably not the only one,” says Williams.

“So I decided to survey my friends. I asked one question: When you think about a martini glass, what comes to mind? About 90 percent said spills. That’s when I knew I was on to something.”

The CNBC show, which dishes tools and advice for budding entrepreneurs, spurred her to take the next step. With cardboard and scissors, she created a prototype at home.

“I didn’t want to change the glass’ shape, because that’s what makes a martini,” she says.

“To keep the integrity of the glass, I decided to add a lip [along the edge] with a small opening for a straw or to sip straight out of.”
