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.

When you hire a consultant to come into your business, you are basically paying them a large fee to listen to your employees and then relay the infromation to you and vice versa. Why spend that money when you can do the same thing for free? It’s really quite simple actually, you listen to both yourself and your employees and then you put into action the things that make sense to everyone.

Always make sure that you fix the problems you can fix rather than pointing fingers and blaming others for the problem. One of the most important steps is to actually fix the correct problem. As silly as it sounds, all too often the wrong problem is fixed as suggested on Entrepreneur.com.

Listen to your team. Go to your team, and tell them you want to make a fresh start. Tell them you want them to enjoy their jobs more and get more done. Ask each person on the team for three problems that you can fix to make their lives easier.

Have you been your own companies consultant in the past?
