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.

Inc.com: “A number of employees, all of them perfectly pleasant as drinking buddies or dinner companions, had grown complacent, behaving as though they had earned some kind of tenure. Even some longtime friends were slacking off. “I figured if I hired my buddies, they’d work their butts off for me,” Baker says. Instead, he had to fire two of them. The last straw came one night at happy hour when one of his salespeople–the brother of a college pal–got drunk and proclaimed that he could do a better job than Baker and was starting a rival business. It was then that Baker realized he had a lot to learn about the difference between being a friend and being a boss.”
