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.

Work at Home Chuck:

Recently a local doctor told a college student not to enter medical transcription because “medical transcriptionists won’t exist in 10 years?.

Of course, with remote doctors, it’s equally possible to say that local doctors won’t exist in 10 years, but I bet she still tells people to go to medical school.

As my wife, a very busy medical transcriptionist told her, “Who knows WHAT job will be here in 10 years!?

The doctor made this point even though she’s never used an MT and writes her notes long hand.

This is becoming increasingly impractical in the age of digital medical records, so the hospital suggested she get a $40,000 medical records system.

No telling what the annual upgrades will cost, but that sounds like it would pay for a lot of medical transcription.

My wife has been in medical office work for 30 years.

When computers first came out, they were sure that within 6 months half the staff would be gone.

They weren’t… as many people seem to be hired in the offices as before.
