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.

Lucky Dragon Visa

Adam Humphreys wanted to visit China, but getting a visa was a buearacratic nightmare. All wasn’t lost though, because Humphreys found a business opportunity. NPR shares his story:

It started simply enough. Adam found out he needed a visa to travel to China. He went online. Filled out a long, complicated form. And Adam showed up at the Chinese Consulate only to find out that he had filled out the wrong form.

“Can you help me?” he said.

“No.”

“Do you have a printer I can use?” he tried.

“No.”

“Where’s the nearest Internet cafe?” he asked.

“At the Burger King.”

Apparently there is an Internet cafe a half-mile away from the consulate in the dining room of a Burger King.

So Adam walked over.

“And I saw inside the Burger King,” he says, “that every single one of their computers was dedicated to the same Chinese PDF.”

So Humphreys rented a van and outfitted it with laptop computers and a couch and parked it outside the Chinese consulate. His business, Mobile Visa Consultant NYC was up and running.
