You are invited to Celebrate Our Makers. The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce is turning the spotlight on businesses throughout the Thompson Valley that make our community distinct. We are taking a closer look at the people behind the scenes, behind the creation, and behind the experience—asking what is it that you create? Let’s find out.
Meet Stacey Owen—new mom, founder & CEO of Pepper—Your Badass Business BFF. Stacey is a successful, long-time photographer with a great network of like-minded creatives surrounding her.
Prior to founding Pepper, Stacey’s photography business was taking off so quickly that she didn’t have the womanpower to shoot, edit, and complete the backend tasks that made up her business. After hunting for an agency that could meet her needs—taking care of the admin aspects of her business and freeing up her time to shoot and create— she realized that no such agency existed. To solve the problem, she created one.
Pepper is a marketing agency that handles creative modern marketing strategy and content creation for photographers and other creative entrepreneurs. “By utilizing our creative agency, you’re dedicating time to find a more fulfilling work-life balance. You can provide the best service possible to your clients by leaving the business stuff to us, so you can live your best life.”
The entire Pepper team revolves around a set of principles that allow them to find a healthy balance between work and life. Stacey’s insistence on work-life balance has led to a successful start-up team who works hard, plays hard, and helps their creative clients do the same - with balance.
