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.

USA Today:

Small-business owners face an onslaught of choices as companies blitz them with new credit card offers.

American Express just launched a cash-back card aimed at small companies. Visa this month is rolling out a card targeting small firms with big appetites, those spending $25,000 or more a year. Discover entered the market for the first time this past summer.

Business owners should move cautiously, just as they would when shopping for a personal credit card. Rock-bottom interest rates can jump after the introductory period ends. They often soar, too, if owners make a late payment. Cash-back rewards may sound like great money savers, but not if you carry a balance subject to high interest.

Marketers smell opportunity in the 90% or more of small-business spending not on credit cards — up to $4.8 trillion a year, says Visa.
