Right at the top of the list of ‘brilliant business ideas I wish I’d thought of’ is Daily Candy which has apparently just been sold for $125 million. Not bad for a company that employs just 55 people and relies principally on the archaic delivery method of email.
A brilliantly simple idea, brilliantly executed, and whoever decided to have the emails illustrated by the fabulous Sujean Rim deserves genius points. I do hope Sujean is getting a big cut of that $125 million.
One of my dearest ambitions for ‘mirrormirror‘ is to get it into Daily Candy. Which probably means I need to pull my finger out and focus more on developing it as I have been sorely neglecting my baby of late.
