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.

Jesus wants you to make money!

With the holiday season approaching, there are many people looking into work from home jobs to make a little extra spending money for the holidays. The problem is that the true work from home jobs can be very hard to find through all the scams and hustles that are going around. Look below for some ways you can recognize a scam when you see one, recently located on Entrepreneur.com.

Be very suspicious of the ads that show up a lot. These are typically the ones that promise large amounts of money to be earned for very little work at all in return. Come on, who is gonna pay a ton for only a little work?

Always be sure that you have everything in writing, especially if the pay is expected to be over $500.00. When you have everything in writing this gives you the one up in case they should try to default on their end of the deal or start playing some sort of funny business.

Make sure to ask several questions before signing the final paperwork and going to work. You should know exactly what the company does, what your actual job will be, the hours, the exact amount of pay, the work load and time limits you will be expected to complete and so on.
