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.

According to an article in Mental Floss, “An hour’s nap in the afternoon can boost a person’s brain power and improve their memory … showing that short periods of sleep during the day can make it easier to function mentally.”

It all happens in the hippocampus, which is a part of our brain which temporarily stores “fact-based memories.” “It’s as though the email inbox in your hippocampus is full and, until you sleep and clear out those fact emails, you’re not going to receive any more mail. It’s just going to bounce until you sleep and move it into another folder,” Dr Matthew Walker, a Berkeley psychologist said.

Even more fascinating, the study found that small children who are learning to construct words into sentences are unlikely to remember their lessons unless they sleep soon afterward.
