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:
Business owners are the happiest workers in America, according to Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index poll data collected from January to August. Transportation and manufacturing workers have the lowest overall well-being.
Some other observations:
• The three occupations with the highest levels of well-being are those with the highest household income.
• Self-employed workers also work the most hours per week.
• Farm workers, fishers and forestry workers exhibit the healthiest habits — good diet, frequent exercise and low smoking rates.
• Construction workers and managers/executives score the best on overall health, as determined by measures of chronic illnesses.
