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.

Working in partnership with the Denver Office of Cultural Affairs, YesPleaseMore aims to provide an economic development platform that gives participating creatives funding for new innovations, the opportunity to sell their wares, and a nurturing environment for creative entrepreneurial culture and reported by trendspotter Springwise.

Its pop-up souvenir shop in a vacant retail space within the Denver Pavilions, for example, features goods exclusively designed in Colorado by local craftspeople, including furniture, paper goods, clothing, jewelry, prints and art.

A full 70 percent of sales at the store directly benefits local creatives, while 20 percent goes to YesPleaseMore operations and 10 percent funds programs and the group’s USD 500 starter grants, which are awarded to applicants whose projects get the most public votes.
