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.

A recent study by the SBA found that when unemployment is high, the number of sole proprietorships goes up. Some people who are laid off from their jobs decide to start small businesses.

If you find yourself in such circumstances — out of a job and thinking about starting a business — chances are you won’t have much money to start up with.

So Business.gov put together 10 businesses with potential for growth in 2010 that require little startup capital.

1. Consulting for your former employer or in your old industry

2. Web businesses

3. Virtual assistant

4. Online social media consulting; online content production

5. Convenience services for consumers

6. Pet businesses

7. Kids products or services

8. Mobile apps development and mobile consulting

9. Specialty foods

10. Landscaping and handyman services
