Q. What was the inspiration behind starting your business?
The lack of positivity we were seeing in the media (including social media), we felt like this was a great way to spread positivity. Especially in a world that can seem so divided and cold. Diverse Gift Shop is a way for us to make a statement.
Q.How did you get started? What steps did you take to launch your business?
First, we did a lot of research. We knew what we wanted our brand to stand for, but we had to do a lot of research to decide how we would effectively execute our ideas. We design each mug ourselves, so once we created the designs, we sent them to our manufacturer. We then completed our website and started to promote our brand via social media.
