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.

Economic Times:

The boom in India’s travel & hospitality industry has the makings of an obvious, though hitherto surprisingly uncommon, spat. Many hotel biggies – global as well as Indian – are revisiting and recharting their business model for the country. And if that means ending long running brand partnerships, so be it.

With an eye to better manage their brand in an emerging country such as India and extract more revenues in market where room tariffs are only headed one way – up – global hotel brands are moving away from pure franchisee model to management contracts, and in few cases even total ownership of hotels that carry their shingles. Indian hoteliers, on the other hand, emboldened by long experience of handling best in class global brands, want to charter an independent course and see no reason why they can’t build their own luxury or budget brands themselves, and see franchise fees as a drain on their resources.
