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 story at CNNMoney.com, as mom-and-pop businesses struggle to make ends meet, the latest attempt to help them has gotten mired in Washington politics.

The debate began in October, when President Obama started pushing ways to get cheap capital to small businesses. It continued after his State of the Union address, in which he touted the proposal.

Now nearly two months after the administration proposed a new multibillion dollar package of loans and tax credits, the effort to help small businesses has hit a wall.

At the earliest, the Small Business Jobs and Credit Act will be taken up in September.

Meanwhile many entrepreneurs, who’ve been treading water for months, are afraid of going under.
