Q1. What inspired you to start this Business/Entrepreneurship?

We incepted DIVA - 5 years ago - knowing the paucity of great Pageant Coaching in India. Women Empowerment was a phrase with little opportunity for Ladies to get empowered. 
Our motivation was that Married Women would get a platform to showcase their Skills and a safe environment for them to flourish.

Q2. Kindly share some information here about your Business.

At DIVA, we groom and nourish Women for greater purpose in Life, as their Stage journey enables them to shine as Wives and Professionals too!

DIVA today has over 500 Queens through our Flagship Pageants - Mrs India, Mrs West India, Mrs Maharashtra which are being hosted annually.

We also have the greatest numbers of Queens and wish to create more!

Q3. What kind of challenges did you face while starting/doing business?

Our competitors foolishly believed that they had a monopoly on the Market.

Q4. Do let our readers know about your discovery period when you were facing difficulties in your business?

Our discovery was Resilience - the inner strength that drives you excel at Your Goals.

Q5. Share with our readers about your experiment period after the discovery period

Anjana believes "Pageantry Changes Lives" and Karl states "Get Groomed and Command the Room". These lines drew married Ladies from across India to believe in DIVA and undergo Life Transformation. We tried to give them the Grooming sessions, the best in the Business, both Online and Offline. We believe that they must be both Attractive & Articulate, to get ahead in Life.

Q6. What are your future plans and your vision for the next five years?

We wish to host a grand International Pageant like Mrs Universe / World. 

Pageantry, as a programme, could be made mandatory for Ladies seeking Self-development.

Q7. How would you advice new Entrepreneurs who want to start and sustain Business?

Our advice is "Believe in Yourself - Others then start to Believe in YOU" !
