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:
Office Depot has launched its “Small Business Self-Bailout Plan”. As part of the program, the office supplies and services provider created the Survival of the Smartest website for business owners who need support during “The Great Recession.”
The Office Depot Adopt a Small Business contest will recognize 500 of the “best and smartest small businesses in the country” and award the winners a total of $1 million. To enter, send in a two-minute video of what you are doing to be smart in this economy. Entries are accepted through July 31.
And even if you aren’t selected, the winning videos will be posted online, so you pick up some additional strategies that may work for you. Now that’s some stimulus.
