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 asked about their company’s policies for monitoring employees, more than one third of business owners say that they do not screen employee computer use in any way.

An Inc.com poll, which surveyed readers between September 22 through October 6 and received 305 respondents, found that 25 percent of companies blocked “unproductive” sites like YouTube, Twitter, and Facebook, while 19 percent monitored company email, but only when they suspected a problem; 16 percent tracked all employee computer usage.

In comparison, a 2007 survey by the American Management Association, which included businesses of all sizes, found that 66 percent of employers monitored Internet connections and 43 percent monitored email.

“I would tend to think if you have a company of 20 people or less, you already know what’s going on” with your employees, says Elizabeth Charnock, CEO of Cataphora, a Redwood City, California-based company that provides business software to collect data on employees.
