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.

NY Times:

Indeed, in a recent survey of 951 small-business owners by Small Business Digest, 51 percent said they had purchased their venture rather than starting from scratch.

The risks buyers face are often much larger than they anticipated, Mr. Minor said. “There are any number of ways you can go wrong” when buying a business, he said. The first stumbling block for most, he said, is trying to figure out if the business is worth its sticker price.

Ms. McGuckin said she frequently “has to talk people off the ledge” when they want to buy a business for a higher price than she thinks the business is worth.

“People develop a passion for something and they put blinders on and think, ‘I’ve just got to have this no matter what the price,’ ” she said.
