Today we’d like to introduce you to Abbygayle Brown.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
As a youngster, I’ve always dreamt about having my own business. Being so young I felt it was impossible. One beautiful day back in 2019 while driving with my stepmom, I talked about starting an accessory business for young people, selling durags. My stepmom mentioned that I have a lot of glasses so it should not be difficult. I started to brainstorm some names, but I wanted it to have a meaning. While listening to one of Beyoncé’s songs, I came up with DivaPlayhouse. I can be a Diva at times. I was ready to take on the world with my plan. Due to the pandemic, I lost hope, however it didn’t stop me from what I wanted.
I made an Instagram account called Divaplayhouse and it will cater to all the beautiful young men and women who love sunglasses and durags for their luscious waves. It was the best thing I have ever done. I was filled with excitement about the launch, and my mom made the first out-of-state order. It made me wanted to work harder.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
It hasn’t been a smooth journey seen the fact of the pandemic persons lost their jobs and moreover no one had reasons for shopping. But I never gave up, I was still getting orders here and there, was still thankful.
Please tell us about Divaplayhouse.
I specialize in beauty and appearance; my products are not seasonal but it’s an everyday attire. The proud part of my company is that it speaks volumes of my products And how it will enhance your everyday look.
If you had to go back in time and start over, would you have done anything differently?
If I had to start over, I would’ve launched my business when I first thought about it, even though I thought it couldn’t be done because I was young. With the help and guidance from my older peers, it would’ve worked and maybe it would be a name to remember!
