Meet 27-year-old Danielle Baskin Who Owns Six Businesses

A 27-year-old entrepreneur named Danielle Baskin has six businesses to look after.

She founded a company called ‘Peddler Pop-Ups’ which provides tricycles to working people, to companies for mobile advertisements and as a showpiece to pop-up stores. The cycles are equipped with a small desk that an employee can use while cycling around the city. Isn’t so wonderful?

Danielle, apart from Peddler Pop-Ups, owns five more businesses.

Another company is called ‘Inkwell Helmets’ wherein she hand-paints bike helmets. Although her products were unique, she struggled to break into the bricks-and-mortar retail industry. She began with selling them online. She created a website herself where the customers could look at the designs but place order only via email and pay using PayPal.

She tells, “I didn’t intend to turn it into a company. I just thought it was a cool object. But then, once I made a few designs, I thought, ‘There are so many possibilities.”

Inkwell Helmets is her most successful venture. This year, she said, she has sold 20 to 75 helmets a month, an increase of about 200 percent over 2014. The helmets cost $85 to $300 apiece.

This young woman has no ‘stop’ point in her life. She is now all set to invent folding bikes for her next big business idea. Whoa!
