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.

Stephen Noble is hoping to scoop the coveted John Logie Baird Award for his innovative Latch-a-Lead.

If successful, Stephen, 28, will win a £20,000 business support package for his unique design dog lead which allows dog walkers to let their pets off the lead from the handle, instead of the collar, according to a story in Scotland’s Evening Times.

Stephen, who works as a leisure centre attendant, said: “I often take my dog, Napoleon, out on my bike. Having to get off the bike to release Napoleon from the lead frustrated me and made me think that having to bend down to unhook the lead at the collar must be difficult for elderly or disabled dog owners. The Latch-a-Lead solves this problem.

“My patented design allows users to release the lead ­using a device in the handle. This means there is no need to bend down or, in my case, get off my bike.

“There are 19 million dog owners in Britain and I ­believe my invention will make a big difference to them. I hope it will replace the standard lead altogether.”
