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.

John Canter:

In a world dominated by big-box retailers, it’s easy for an independent small-business man like me to feel like David battling Goliath.

On bad days, I’m tempted to think: “Why bother? Since I can’t compete with their prices, I’ll get crushed.”

Au contraire. It’s precisely my small size that lets me level the playing field, run a successful business and compete with the big boys.

But to compete, I must use all the advantages inherent to a small business.

John then goes on to explain some of his strategies for competing with the big retailers.
