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.

And now for some irresponsible “the sky is falling” reporting from Canada.com:

On its own, it’s a startling statistic: 500,000 of Canada’s small business owners will retire in the next five years.

According to a report released yesterday by CIBC World Markets, half a million small business owners will retire in the next five years, and by 2020, one half of the country’s 2.5-million entrepreneurs are expected to retire.

What, there aren’t going to be any new Canadian entrepreneurs in the next decade and a half? I’m surprised that the article didn’t include this scary statistic: 100% of Canadian entrepreneurs are expected to die in the next three hundred years.
