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 Business Opportunities Weblog is a moderated list of legitimate business opportunities for entrepreneurs. It is presented like a weblog with chronological archives and extensive outbound links. Since 2001 this site has helped thousands of individuals in their quest for self-employment and business ownership. Our mission is simple: to help entrepreneurs like yourself find the business that’s right for YOU!

Who am I?

My name is Dane Carlson and I built this site because I’m an entrepreneur to the core, and am always on the lookout for new opportunities. Unfortunately, most of the bizops I found on the web were junk, so in 2001 I started making a list of the few gems that I came across. Here, much enhanced and expanded, is that list. The full story of how I accidentally became a professional blogger is here. You can also read about my outdoor hobbies here.

I live in California just outside of Yosemite National Park with my wife and three sons and am also one of the pastors of Mariposa Reformed Baptist Church.

Code of Ethics

I strive to only list quality businesses opportunities. I will not knowingly promote junk bizops, and will actively take a stand against them.
