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:

I have had to preside over cutbacks at a number of companies — including Quest Diagnostics and Masonite International — and have found time and again that going the extra yard to help employees, customers, suppliers, and dealers through the transition is not only the right thing to do, it’s good business.
While recent bad news rivals any seen since the 1930s, it’s unlikely that this contraction will be quite that bad.
Apparently, last September the economy was on the brink of collapse, literally within a couple of hours.
