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.

The Arizona Republic:

Bethany McNelly likes to think outside the box when it comes to her idea of hip fashion.

Frustrated with not enough sassy pink apparel, the 22-year-old launched her own line, called Material Bitch.

Yes. It’s an obnoxious word to sport.

But McNelly’s star-appeal T-shirts is gaining popularity on her online store and on the MySpace.com site. She even offers a chat room and dictionary for the words printed on tops.

“I’ve always been girly,” said the Scottsdale online entrepreneur.

So far, McNelly has sold nearly 600 T-shirts since the January launch of her hot pink online store. Her shirts come in hot pink, baby pink and white with words like (expletive) Fabulous or Gully, which means “keeping it hoody,” she said. The fitted T-shirts sell for $25 a piece.

They are also sold at Underground Clothing in Anthem, and LF in downtown Tempe. Online the hot pink, Gully T-shirt is sold out. Watch out, a MB velour track suit come out this fall, McNelly said.

Though McNelly said she is attracting fans from all over, a majority is from Arizona. She joins other novelty retailers who sell expressive T-shirts such as No Fear, Yellow Rat Bastard, or French Connection UK(normally sported on T-shirts as FCUK) to name a few.
