Taking it to the next level! If, when and how to grow your business from $100,000 to $1.5 Million











Ladies, don't miss this fabulous opportunity to hear from two design powerhouses, Ebony Snow Chafey and Suji Meswani who are happy to share their success stories with you.

Chicago based Ebony Snow Chafey of Snow and Graham www.snowandgraham.com and Philadelphia based Suji Meswani of Skeem Design www.skeemdesign.com will travel to Boston for an evening at one of our favorite meeting places, the luxurious Mohr and McPherson www.mohr-mcpherson.com. We will hear real life success stories about how these designers took their ideas, their talent and a (maybe?) a little bit of luck and grew it to what is now businesses with $1.5 M in sales. We hope it will inspire you to take it up a notch in your own design studios here in Boston!

Ebony Snow Chafey has been in business for 14 years and claims that "it is the relationships that I have developed with my customers and vendors that have allowed my company to be successful and to get through difficult economic times". Chafey says "I founded Snow and Graham straight out of art school (the School of the Art Institute of Chicago) where my focus was on sculpture in the metals foundry". She goes on to say that "I dabbled in print making. I stumbled upon a letterpress print shop here in Chicago and fell in love with the process- it made me want to draw. Along the way, I learned how to get a product produced, distributed and sold"! "It was a lot of trial and error and a little luck", she says. "Now, S&G is headed into it's 14th year, but I say it is the last 2 that really count".

Suji Meswani, founder and co-owner of Skeem Design founded the company in 2004. Inspired by travels to exotic locales such as India, Costa Rica and New Zealand, Skeem design developed a perfect wax formulation along with gorgeous scents, colors and packaging. "Everything can be a source of inspiration, whether an exotic locale, a piece of music, a show at a museum, fashion or antique textiles", says Suji. "The name Skeem?" Meswani says "is a play on words and the founder's scheme to break free from the corporate world".
