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.

Hindu Business Line:

A group of seven teenaged girls, who toiled as labourers in brick klins as child labourers in North 24 Parganas district, have stitched up a new life for themselves by going into the tailoring business.

“The idea for a tailoring business came to us after we joined a vocational training programme a few months ago,” 16-year-old Fazila Khatun, one of the girls, said.

Khatun recalled that her life earlier was limited to mixing soil, making mud balls, moulding, carrying heavy wet bricks for drying and finally putting them into the furnace.

She was one of the 40 girls of Majlispur, which is notorious for using child labour in brick kilns, who were given basic tailoring skills by an international NGO.

After completion of a six-month course, each of them were given sewing machines to begin their lives as entrepreneurs.
