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.

An eleven year old named Nathan had a problem. While doing his math homework, he needed to measure something but couldn’t find a ruler. He looked down at the pencil in his hand and inspiration hit. Why not combine a pencil with a ruler?

Ruler Pencil

Nathan found a manufacturer, but they require at least a minimum order of 1000 pencils, and that’s more money he has in his piggy bank. What’s an entrepreneur with a great idea and not enough capital to do?

Post his project to Kickstarter, of course!

Nathan only needed $350 to fund his business, but so far, with twenty three days to go, he’s already raised almost $2500!
