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 reflects on his time in a cubicle that ended recently. He lists out a few things that suck about corporate america. The one that rings true with me:

Meetings: Spending nearly 50% of your time in meetings seemed like a waste.

I’ve worked for wide range of companies during my short time in the grind and I am constantly amazed at the amount of time wasted in meetings. I do realize there is a need to collaborate, however 90% of the time I spend in them is listening to stuff that does not apply to me or my department.

I believe a solution is having a higher quantity of small meetings with shorter periods of time that are strictly held to. Make sure the things being discussed are relevant to all those in the room. Otherwise you are only wasting resources.
