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.

CNN Money:

For many people, starting their own business is a dream come true. But too many entrepreneurs see their dreams fall apart – their firms fail because of common pitfalls that could have been avoided.

One-third of small businesses fail in the first two years, according to the Small Business Administration, and a little more than half fail within the first five years.
this quick test.

But that doesn’t mean you have to give up your dream. Here are five common mistakes to avoid, so you can build a successful business.

  1. Too little cash
  2. Thinking small
  3. Skimping on tech
  4. Underestimating the importance of sales
  5. Losing focus
