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.

Startup Journal:

Now’s a good time to jump into self-employment as an independent consultant — at least for some professions.

In the continuing effort to comply with laws such as Sarbanes-Oxley and the health-privacy act known as HIPAA, companies increasingly turn to independent contractors. Plus, companies now see independent pros as a way to fill in talent gaps in their own organizations.

Some companies hire a consultant to get a project off the ground, and then turn over the project’s maintenance to in-house employees.

Companies are “buying talent for special projects,” says Robert Morgan, chief operating officer of Hudson Talent Management, a unit of Hudson Highland Group, a recruiting and consulting firm in New York.

Mr. Morgan, who is based in Chicago, says: “We’ve seen a growth in independent professionals… in finance and accounting, in legal, in human resources.”
