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.

My Family Australia

International vacations can be a great way to come up with new business ideas. When you’re outside of your normal environment, and even more so, when outside of your cultural comfort zone, you’ll be exposed to many interesting and innovative ideas and opportunities that with a just a little localization might be just right for your domestic audience.

An example of this phenomenon involves the Australian couple Monica Liebenow and her husband Phil Barham. While in California, Barham noticed a cartoon family displayed on the back windshield of a car. Upon returning to Australia, he explained the idea to Liebenow, a graphic artist, and My Family Stickers were born.

The stickers are similar to the ones you see in the US, but they have an Australian flavor. In keeping with the Australian love of eating and cooking outdoors, the most popular “father” sticker is one they called “Barbecue Dad”. In fact, three of four most popular father stickers depict the father doing something outdoorsy.

According to the company, in the last two years, more than two million My Family Stickers have been sold.
