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.

If you run a profitable eBay business, full-time or part-time, you may be able to gain tax relief and build up retirement savings through a qualified retirement plan and/or IRA. For example, if you net $40,000 from an eBay business and make a tax-deductible contribution of $5,000 to a retirement plan, you only pay income tax now on $35,000. If you’re in the 25% tax bracket, the write-off essentially means that the contribution is only costing you $3,750 out-of-pocket; the government is contributing $1,250 through the taxes you save by making the contribution.

The type of plan you use and the amount of money you put into it depends on several factors, including how much you want or can afford to save, whether you have other retirement plans, whether you have employees, and your years until retirement. Here are just three options to consider:
