Creative Startups



Creative Startups

This week’s, ahem, creative business? Professional cuddling. As in, getting paid to spoon with someone. As in, someone actually made a business out of this. I’m not sure which is more...interesting: The fact that this legitimately exists, or the fact that there’s a demand for it.

Selfie” might be the word of the decade (based on a very un-scholarly observation by moi), but there’s still a lot of selfie-shame that comes with letting the world know you are unabashedly taking self-important photographs of yourself.

If you’ve ever had a love/hate relationship with the mere thought of using a selfie-stick, perhaps this selfie smart mirror is more your speed.
