When you don’t have the words, let your gloves say it for you!

Flip ‘em the Bird, Inc. is a women-owned, Minnesota based start-up founded by Susie Moschkau and Natalie Buckman. While freezing at their office jobs and looking for some comic relief to combat the day to day challenges of corporate life, Susie and Natalie hatched their idea for Flip ‘em the Bird fingerless gloves! After 2 decades of friendship and the dread of turning the big 4-0, they decided it was time to take their hilariousness and sassitude to the masses and launched a brand that is uniquely funny and fashionable.

On this episode, Susie and Natalie share how they got their idea off the ground, what they’ve learned about business, manufacturing, and social media marketing along the way, and how they give back to the social causes they care about through their “Swearing is Caring” campaign.
