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.

A recent article explained how differently a corporation plans out their business from the way an entrepreneur does. For example, in a large corporation it is entirely possible to obtain enough resources to run a project for a long period of time before anybody every goes back to check the actual plan and assumptions of that plan. Whereas an entrepreneur must constantly evaluate and redirect their efforts.

This should not be understood to mean that planning should be without discipline – quite the contrary. A good plan takes you systematically from one discovery to the next, ideally with cost and risk contained so that your exposure to the downside never exceeds your capacity to bear it, while continuing to access the upside of your opportunities.
