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.

Washington Post:

The U.S. Department of Labor issued guidelines Thursday for state workforce agencies to create programs that would allow their states’ unemployed to collect unemployment insurance while starting their own businesses. The so-called Self-Employment Assistance programs will be funded by a $35 million grant, divided among all 50 states and D.C., and disbursed to individuals who qualify for unemployment compensation but wish to start their own companies rather than find a new job.

The programs would require interested entrepreneurs to bring their business plans to their local state-based programs for evaluation. If approved, they would receive up to 26 weeks of financial assistance equal to the amount they would have received in unemployment insurance, as well as entrepreneurship training, while they attempted to get the business running.

They couldn’t before? Does anyone really think that this process will generate more small businesses? The states get to evaluate their business plans?< /p>
