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 Inc., haircare is a really growing industry:

The folliclely focused fields are experiencing a renaissance, not just in the rise of boutique salons and barber shops that double as bars but also in the number of people learning the profession. Cosmetology and barber schools is the No. 1 fastest growing industry for 2011, according to AnythingResearch.com. The schools train both stylists and potential entrepreneurs who may someday open their own salons.

Most states require licensing for stylists, so the schools indicate a required step before entering the field. Trade schools thrived during the economic slump, and according to IBISWorld, professional skills and performance training has potential to grow 5.3 percent every year until 2016. Educating future coiffeurs is a trade itself, with an exceptional year-over-year growth rate of 29 percent, according to data from AnythingResearch.com.

I wouldn’t know. I haven’t been to a barber in years. My wife does a fine job on mine and the boy’s hair.
