Frequently Asked Questions About TrueToast

Q: Why the name “TrueToast”?
A: The name “TrueToast” came about as a response to the stereotype that “Millennials only care about avocado toast”. We wanted to own that stereotype, and then turn it on its head. Instead, we assert that millennials are diverse, hardworking, and ambitious. “TrueToast” proves that, though we may in fact care about toast, we also care about things that are of substance. TrueToast aims to prove that our generation is True to ourselves and making waves in the world.

Q: TrueToast doesn’t look like your typical digital magazine. Why is that?
A: TrueToast Magazine wanted to shy away from all the bells and whistles of typical entrepreneur magazines. We feel that readers are often frustrated by manipulative marketing strategies, aggressive display advertisements, and click-bait content. We wanted to create a digital resource of true stories and real advice, with integrity. We promote authentic products and adhere to ethical business practices. More than anything else, our focus is on providing valuable, high-quality content to our readers. If you have suggestions on how to improve our site, please e-mail us at editor@truetoast.com.
