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.

Are you having a little trouble getting the grants you need for your small business? Small Business Trends has a few tips to help you get started.

The difficulty in applying for a grant is knowing where to start. Instead of trying to do it all by yourself, try the following:

Go to local networking events. Ask around and see who has recently applied for (and won) grants.

Connect with others involved in the grant development process. In many small towns, this may be the town clerk, mayor’s office or some other local governing body.

Contact successful grant winners. You can find out about these from the local Chamber of Commerce, procurement websites or others in the business community. Unless you’re a direct competitor, most grant recipients will be willing to share lessons learned.
