Business Opportunities Weblog readers are a smart and entrepreneurial bunch. Everyday I get emails telling me all about their new projects. Once a week, I’m going to feature some of them in a post and let other’s comment on their own new ventures.

If you have something to brag about, email me, or leave a comment on this post.

Without further ado, here’s the inaugural edition of the Readers’ Brag Basket:

First of all I would like to say that I really like to read your blog. Really inspiring and helpful articles with new ideas and sources. Also thanks to you and your blog I started my entrepreneurial career with my project Days To Share. The idea behind the project is to be able to own a day in year 2009 and use the site to show the world what is so special about this day. Days can be used for celebrating birthdays, blog birthdays, … or can be used for marketing.

One of the main reasons I like your blog is you talk about business opportunities. However, since it is a business opportunities blog, it is light on how to make businesses successful. Over at my blog, I started a new blog series called “Success Factors.” It goes into detail about how to build a successful business and I think your readers will love it.Please let me know what you think. You can find the series beginning here.

I am a fan and long time reader of your blog. I am starting the New Year with a PR project. I will be traveling to the South Pole in 2010 and will carry 100 flags of company sponsors that will be planted at the Pole. A large portion of the money will go to the Environmental Defense Fund. I just created a preliminary website. I have 8 or so sponsors in my past week of campaigning for the project. Such individuals as celebrity Corbin Bernsen will have a flag. Corbin is an avid collector of snow globes and will soon release a whole line of globes called Corbin’s Classic Domes. I was introduced to Corbin through Kyle Macdonald, the guy who traded a paperclip into a house. Also, a guy from my town of Charleston, SC, Shepard Fairey. Shepard is the guy who came up with the HOPE campaign for Barrack Obama. My most recent sponsor is a company called Techwood. Techwood makes a strong press wood by mixing in plastic polymers. The result is a wood that is almost as cheap and many times more durable and long lasting than normal wood.

Great site, Dane. I own and operate a business that raises and direct markets natural beef. I started the business in 2001 and have grown each year. The business is at a point where I need a partner to help it continue to grow. The partner needs to be a working partner and could be, but does not have to be, an investor. Please take a look at my website:

She has been sucessful selling on line and is now looking at developing further markets both in the US and in the Asia Pacific region including Australia.

A little disclosure: I’ve borrowed the “brag basket” concept from Becky McCray and her fantastic blog Small Biz Survival.
