One Plus Two Equals Success

One Plus Two Equals Success

Take one amazing idea. Add two best friends. You’ve got yourself a recipe for SUCCESS!

There are soooooo many famous examples to back me up. Ben & Jerry’s, the fashion house Marchesa, Instagram…each of these household names began as a friendship that rocketed into the stratosphere of success.

In my experience, friendship-based business partnerships carry a tremendous amount of upside. Working with the person you admire and enjoy most in the world while pursuing your shared business passion? Yes, please!


I love meeting besties turned business partners and listening to their stories. A few weeks ago I connected with  Jennifer Moore and Cyndi Tommasi, friends since college and founders of YoToGo™, makers of genius little Greek yogurt carriers.

Cyndi and Jennifer, founders of YoToGo

A couple of years back during a girls’ trip, Jennifer shared her idea for insulated Greek yogurt carriers with her friends. Like many busy moms on the go, she gets low blood sugar and likes to keep healthy snacks handy to get her between meals. (Hangry don’t look good on anyone!)

The question was, how to keep the yogurt cold while carrying it around during the day. And like so many other inventions born out of necessity, YoToGo was created!

Cyndi listened to Jennifer’s idea and couldn’t believe her ears. Just two weeks before heading off on the girls’ vacay, she had searched stores and online for exactly that for her kids’ lunches, and had come up empty handed.

Cyndi is quick to credit Jennifer with the conception and design of the YoToGo product. In turn, Jennifer is adamant that YoToGo wouldn’t be where it is today without Cyndi’s business sense and belief in the product.

Anyone can tell these two longtime friends really love and respect one another, and have so much fun working together. If you ask me, that’s what it’s all about!

We love our sponsors! Guests at Two Girls from Savannah’s recent SAVOR bar & kitchen event were treated to YoToGo Greek yogurt carriers inside their goody bags!

Listen to the Experts: Go Greek!

Greek Yogurt was named one of Health magazine’s Top 10 Superfoods for Women.

“It’s rich in calcium and good for our bones,” dietitian Kate Geagan says. In fact, one serving supplies nearly one-fourth of a woman’s daily calcium needs, and the fat-free variety is packed with twice as much protein as regular yogurt.

How much you need: Have at least three servings of dairy a day; fat-free Greek yogurt is a good choice. “It’s a healthy swap for artery-clogging sour cream,” Geagan says.

Two Girls from Savannah

I love love love working with my best friend, Camille. She is one of the most creative, positive, stylish, beautiful, honest, fun women I have ever known. We go together like shrimp and grits. Our combined energy is magic!

Camille is the founder of CSparkman, and art is her jam. We go wayyyy back, both having grown up in Savannah before landing Atlanta. Our collaboration, Two Girls from Savannah, has always felt so natural; a celebration of our creative chemistry.

While we’re passionate about building our own companies, there’s nothing like the thrill we get working together to produce and host client events and fundraisers throughout the South.
