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.

Bookstore

  1. People are getting rid of bookshelves. Treat the money you budgeted for shelving as found money. Go to garage sales and cruise the curbs.

  2. While you’re drafting that business plan, cut your projected profits in half. People are getting rid of bookshelves.

  3. If someone comes in and asks where to find the historical fiction, they’re not looking for classics, they want the romance section.

  4. If someone comes in and says they read a little of everything, they also want the romance section.
