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.

Noah Kagan may be onto something with his idea for indentured servitude:

Sponsor someone from high-school/college to professional. Not just a scholarship but a life-ship. Still unclear? I am saying you recruit a high-school or college student and mold them into a professional photographer:

  1. Pay for their schooling to learn photography, $150 class + books
  2. Pay for their equipment, $500 for good digital slr camera
  3. Help them create the business and marketing materials necessary, $1500 (website, cards, LLC,etc..)

Okay, nothing in life is free. So the sponsor would take a cut of all the profits. I think this is a win-win situation for everyone. The student gets free schooling, a good pay and a fun job. The sponsor gets to have a mentee, passive profit after some initial work and lots of tears/free food from going to weddings. What you think?
