About Iris

    Iris is a native of the Monterey Peninsula who currently resides in Carmel Valley with her husband, 3 children and a menagerie of animals. She is an aspiring homesteader, artist, writer and small business owner with a passion for raising and growing her own food. She has been a Social Media, Marketing and Promotions guru for a decade.

    After starting her own jewelry business in 2009, Iris took online business and marketing classes while home with her 2 small children. She quickly discovered a passion for small business marketing and social media. As she began running her own business, she realized there was a need for other small business owners to learn how to market themselves as well as to get help with basic business services.

    As her work (and network) has grown over the years, teaching and consulting has become a large part of what she loves to do. Iris has worked with a wide variety of small businesses from established restaurants, new restaurants and bars, music festivals, clubs, musicians, artists, pilates gurus, massage therapists, marketing firms, accountants, estate trustees, and many more. By utilizing her extensive network and skill sets, Iris is able to provide the best of what any small business may need.

    Iris has a broad set of skills based in real world experience that allows her to navigate the business world effectively. This, combined with her ongoing education, gives her unique insights into running and marketing small businesses and working with entrepreneurs.
