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.

Bigger is not always better, says a recent article in The New York Times.

As retailers struggle to save money in a sluggish economy, they’re starting to downsize – literally.

After all, a smaller space will have a lower rent, fewer costs for storing inventory, and a need for fewer employees.

The Times notes that the “change reflects two trends in the retail world: Chains looking for new ways to cut costs in the sour economy, and consumers demanding a less sprawling shopping experience as they spend with greater purpose.”

It’s also giving the stores an opportunity to flex their creative muscles as smaller spaces demand flexible design.

One Bloomingdales in California, for example, has dressing room walls that retract into the ceiling, which, we can only hope, only occurs only when no one is inside them.
