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:
Over 6 million small businesses are started each year and a large percentage of those are based online. Bestselling books like The 4 Hour Work Week, The $100 Startup and The Art of Non-Conformity inspire and motivate future entrepreneurs. But what happens when the reality of starting your own online business is not as glamorous and successful as you had hoped? The reality is that more than 90% of all Internet start-ups end in failure in the first 120 days.
Web startup expert JP Stonestreet is going to change that statistic. He is revolutionizing the way people view their online business and providing tactical advice and clear instructions on how to start your business and ensure its success in his book, The Web Startup Roadmap: Navigate Your Way to a Successful Online Business (Ripen Publishing, March 2013).
JP Stonestreet reveals the secrets to starting, marketing, running and potentially selling a successful online business. His roadmap walks readers through each step of the process using non-technical terms and easy to understand examples. It’s full of practical advice based on over 17 years of real world experience in the software and web business, which includes the sale of a successful web startup.
