Founded in March of 2013, with one of our subsidiaries, So Exquisite Charleston Magazine, we stood firm on the premise that we were a publication that was by the people and for the people. With that, we expanded into what we are today.
We are an organization fiercely devoted to providing creative and engaging platforms for small businesses, creatives, and rising talent in the Lowcountry. Through each of our subsidiaries, we are able to create a well-rounded impact on the communities we serve. Our mission is to change the perspectives of creative people when it comes to accomplishing their goals and pursuing anything greater for themselves. For over 7 years in the Lowcountry, we have helped to found dozens of new minority-owned businesses and community organizations, while inspiring the masses through our work.
A Girl With A Plan
She graduated from Susquehanna University with a Bachelors of Arts degree in Communications, a year and a half earl, and moved back to her hometown of Charleston to start her new life. After 2 months of being on the hunt for a job, she was unsuccessful and became depressed. But when all seemed lost, Kimberly took matters into her own hands and started a blog. What started out as a way to keep busy while continuing to look for work, became a full fledge business and what we know now as So Exquisite Charleston Magazine.
As her entrepreneurial efforts grew, she expanded beyond So Exquisite Charleston, into Exquisite Enterprises Inc. As a proud Charleston native, and a dedicated entrepreneur, Kimberly hopes to motivate and inspire people to chase their dreams and be themselves as she does.
