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.

Harvard Business:

1. Test early and often, with multiple versions of your invention. In Rock’s case, long before he begins a world tour, he experiments with new material by doing 40+ 45-minute shows in a tiny club near his house. This helps him eliminate many duds, and refine the best lines.

2. Establish a process to refine your invention. For Rock, this simply means writing new jokes on a legal pad, and then writing up the audience reaction (good and bad) after he’s done… so he can note, learn from and incorporate the feedback.

3. Don’t overanalyze or overstress if some elements of your invention don’t work for others. Rock recognizes that the audience – not him – ultimately needs to be delighted, so he’ll revise or eliminate a joke he loves if it’s just not working well for others.
