As my business continues to grow, I thought it might be fun to share these photos with you.  These two are the “Iris” behind my business name, The Turquoise Iris.  My grandmother is Julia Iris and my mother is Marilyn Iris.  This photo was taken over 18 years ago and I miss my grandmother so much.  Both of these ladies exude class, integrity and courage, all of which I’ve tried to build my business around.

I encourage you, in choosing a name for your own business, to use words that will remind you of where you came from and where you are going.
