2023 Carlsen Business Ventures

The Carlsen crew is at it again! Not content with just two businesses, we decided to add a new flavor to our portfolio – literally. That’s right, folks, we are now proud owners of MJ’s Gelato and More in Norfolk, Nebraska!

You might be wondering why we would take on the challenge of running an gelato shop. Well, let’s just say Karen had a craving for some sweet treats, and the only way to satisfy it was by owning an entire gelato shop. I mean, who needs a pint of Ben & Jerry’s when you can have an entire business, right?

But in all seriousness, Karen had been on the hunt for the perfect location to start a sober nighttime business. Unfortunately, she didn’t find what she was looking for but instead stumbled upon the delicious opportunity to serve the people of Norfolk some amazing gelato. And who are we to say no to a good scoop of gelato?

Now, you might be thinking, “But wait, aren’t they blockchain investors and medical contractors? What do they know about gelato?” Well, let’s just say we’re taking the “fake it till you make it” approach. But in all honesty, we’re excited to learn the ins and outs of the gelato business and bring our own unique spin to it.

So, if you’re ever in the Norfolk area, stop by MJ’s Gelato and More and say hi to the Carlsen crew. Who knows, you might even catch Karen whipping up some of her famous baked goods in the back. But be warned, we might try to convince you to invest in our latest blockchain venture or sign up for some medical contracting services. We can’t help it, we’re entrepreneurs at heart!

Tanking in Mullen Nebraska August 2020

On the river!

I would like to think that this is our Nebraska annual fun time.

I just love to float and play in the water.

I wear long sleeves so I don’t have to wear sunscreen in those places.

Bethany Beach Nov 2019


This was the first time my children remember getting in the ocean. They had a great time. Karen went off to do something and I accidental let them get wet. Yet again not being the good adult, I was supposed to.
