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:
I haven’t met an entrepreneur yet who coasted through childhood and teen-age years without a job mowing lawns, shoveling snow or babysitting. The really entrepreneurial ones organize kids to take on big projects: A friend of mine ran three newspaper delivery routes by getting other teen-agers to work for him.
Sometimes, they use clever marketing. Look at Siena Jeakle in Seattle, who just won the top prize in small-business magazine Inc.’s “Best Lemonade Stand in America” contest. The editors say Siena, 9, gave her stand a pink theme and donated some of her proceeds to fight breast cancer in honor of her 75-year-old grandmother, a breast cancer survivor.
