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.

Russell Roberts’ account of this exchange with a sidewalk artist makes me feel all warm and tingly inside:

I gave him a $20. He handed me the change and said, “We’re even.”

I smiled and said, on the contrary, we have a beautiful picture and you have our money to enjoy as you wish. We’re not even. We’re both better off.

It sounds horribly pedantic on paper, like an English teacher telling him he’d used ‘hopefully’ in the wrong way. But he smiled and said, you’re right.

But of course we were even in another way. We were both better off.
