'She did it too' - Iris Smit

It's Who I Am The Podcast

In today’s episode of 'She did it too', we hear from beauty guru Iris Smit. Iris is the CEO and founder of The Quickflick & Beauty Fridge, two incredibly successful innovative products in the beauty industry. Starting her business at the young age of 21, in the last four years Iris has hit some huge milestones, From Showcasing her innovation on Shark Tank, to winning global awards in Abu Dhabi. However, one commonality we’ve found when talking to female entrepreneurs is that no road to success comes without its ups and downs. This truly vulnerable episode left both Hannah and I speechless, the story shared by Iris quite literally floored us both. We often look into the life of our inspirations and public success stories and think it was a hurdle free road to success. Iris shares a story of resilience, strength and mental health, and how some really tough times growing up catapulted her into a new way of being. Iris is a force to be reckoned and a genuine go getter, we are so fortunate to be able to chat with her today.   Some of the content shared in this episode may be confronting to hear and triggering. If this affects you there are resources you can reach out to such as Lifeline on 13 11 14-'It's who I am' the podcast is run by two Sister's passionate about sharing real stories that make us who we are.

Quick Flick founder Iris Smit on her mind-blowing, unconventional journey from trauma to triumph

Mental Makeover

This episode is... mind blowing! I got goosebumps so many times and had to edit out my hundreds of "WOW" remarks (I couldn't help myself!). I really struggled to pick a title because nothing could succinctly summarise how interesting, engaging, informative, inspirational and truly unbelievable her story is. You've probably heard of The Quick Flick by now (winged eyeliner stamp for those who haven't), and maybe even her new venture Beauty Fridge. Iris Smit is only 24 and has managed to build a $15 million dollar empire in 2 years. From the outside, everything seemed perfect. Booming business; long term relationship; dream car; dream life, right? Despite every box being ticked, Iris was unhappier than she'd ever been. After experiencing horrific trauma as a child, she had no identity, no control, nothing to call her own and subsequently felt completely numb. It's the story of what came next that truly blew my mind in more ways than one. I won't spoil it because it deserves to be heard in context and in its entirety. Thank you so much to Iris (@irisjade, @thequickflick, @beautyfridge) for joining me on the podcast, I think this will remain one of my favourite episodes for a very long time x
