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:
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.
