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:
Feel like changing your look around? There is a unique product that can help you do that.
Late last year we mentioned the first care bag, a unique bag which helps protect jewelry and electronics from moisture. The founder, Darrian, has come up with another unique product that people will love, Changeable Logo glasses.
The logos and frames fall under 10 different categories: Country, good luck, expression, luxury, love, green, flower, funny, Christmas, and Easter. Whether you’re in love or feel like telling the world you are a part of the eco-movement, there is something for everyone.
The move toward customizable eyeglasses began with Darrian. He wears glasses, and he found them to be quite boring. He couldn’t understand why their appearance couldn’t be changed, so he decided to do something about it. He created a product line and began marketing. It has been rough, but slowly he hopes to convince the world they need customizable eyeglasses!
I recently asked Darrian a couple questions about his experience as an entrepreneur.
What are some lessons your business has taught you?
The business [taught] me to how to deal with suppliers (ensure quality on products), distributors (how to maximize their profit), and customers (maximize customer satisfaction).
Do you have any advice you’d like to offer fellow entrepreneurs who are just getting started?
[To] start a new business [you] need to spend a lot of time and energy building the product. The support from your business partners, family, and friends is [an] important motivator when your business [is] on the downturn or not doing well.
Each 60 count set costs USD 25, with over 100 logos to choose from. Unisex frames cost USD 25, with 25 changeable frames included. 40% of the profits on each sale are also donated to a local charity.
