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.

It’s no surprise that small businesses around the country were really hurting due to the weak economy situation but it’s actually quite shocking just how bad the situation really was for them. A recent article posted on NY Times revealed that more than 400,000 business with employees numbers under 100 had to close their doors in 2009!

These small businesses ranged from makers of fiberboard to fashion boutiques that once pulled in $40,000 a month right down to hit restaurants that use to be considered the hip place to be on a Friday night. So what exactly went wrong? Yes, the economy played a huge role in all of their situations, but that was not the only thing.

One late owner of a womens fashion boutique that was located in Beverly Hills stated that it was not just the economy that hit her hard. She also had a not so understanding landlord in a rather large shopping mall, as well as the fact that he made some rather odd changes to the mall that had customers stating it was the worst place to shop.
