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 a TD Canada Trust survey and BIV Business Today, the top five happiest entrepreneurial cities are Calgary, Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto and Vancouver.

Overall, high satisfaction levels associated with owning their own business were the main reasons for small business owners having a more positive attitude than those who work for someone else.

About 97% said the business gives them a sense of pride and accomplishment, while 91% benefit from a deep personal connection to their employees and customers. About 86% said owning a small business gives them the flexibility to volunteer their time or make donations to charities, sports teams and events.

Although, the majority of entrepreneurs noted that they work far longer hours than employees. About 19% work between 50 and 59 hours a week, while 38% said they work 60 hours or more a week.
