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.

Joe Kraus, one of the founders of Excite, says that hiring a bad employee is far worse than not hiring anyone. He explains:

Other than fundraising, nothing I do as an entrepreneur is as important as hiring. But, hiring is tricky because it’s so easy to loosen standards, especially when you’re feeling in a pinch for people. But, I always keep two things in mind when hiring, no matter how desperate I feel.
  1. A bad employee does far more damage than no employee, no matter the issue.
  2. A players hire A players, B players hire C players, and C players hire losers. Let your standards slip once and you’re only two generations away from death.
