You know it’s a fad when print media rushes in.
Remember 2011, when Hearst, Meredith, The New York Times and dozens of major newspapers all launched their own Groupon-style daily deals services?
“Should Groupon be worried?” Ad Age asked.
The services didn’t last long. TimesSelect, the Times’option, is no longer available. I could only find one survivor: the San Diego Union Tribune. (Singles Hawaiian Luau Party anyone?)
Now it’s happening again, but with meal kits. Startups selling ingredients in a box have surged in popularity in recent years. Blue Apron now ships eight million meals a month through its subscription service. (At $10 each, that’s $960 million in annual revenue.) The company is valued at $2 billion, which is higher than Groupon’s GRPN 2.43% current market value.

Sarah Choi’s fashion career can be divided into two stages: Before and after Beyoncé.

Michelle Inch’s equine horse paint and glitter business has gone around the world and could even lead to a Cbeebies TV show.
Equidivine uses dyes, made from mica pigments and natural chalk, to decorate and “tattoo” horses for events. And the products can easily be washed off, and do not harm the horses says Michelle.
Products on sale on the company’s website include; mane and tail extensions, crystal accessories, glitter and dyes

The world is filled with incredible stories of human compassion, dedication, and industry, but few are more remarkable than those involving childhood ingenuity. I’m writing this article to share with all of you the incredible story of Mikaila, the 11-year-old entrepreneur who is out to save the world’s bees – one bottle of lemonade at a time.
According to her website, Mikaila’s entrepreneurial journey began at the ripe old age of 4, the same age at which I did little more than play and watch baseball. Thanks to some encouragement from her family, Mikaila entered a children’s business competition using her grandmother’s famous flaxseed lemonade recipe.
