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.

The Dallas Morning News reports that a survey released by the U.S. Small Business Administration Office of Advocacy says one in five small businesses nationwide don’t use any form of credit at all.

The results are consistent with similar reports done in 2003, 1998 and 1933.

Such firms are significantly smaller, more profitable, more liquid and more creditworthy than firms that use some form of credit, the report said. They also tend to be in the service, retail and wholesale trade industries.

Most firms in the survey — 40 percent — use both bank credit and trade credit (buying goods or services on an account without an immediate cash payment). Those firms tend to be larger.

The 20 percent of firms that use bank credit only tend to be less profitable and less liquid. And the 20 percent of firms that use trade credit only are more liquid, but less creditworthy.
