We work with                                industry professionals who are:

It takes a highly self-motivated person to be their own boss. We aspire to work with entrepreneurs who dream big and have the courage to get started and take chances. The ability to consistently show up day after day is what we're all about. 

A key attribute to growth is an openness to new ideas, but it can be vulnerable and challenging. The entrepreneurs who find success are the ones who open themselves up to help, feedback, and new possibilities.

Growth Seekers

Just because something has always been done a certain way doesn't mean it's the best way to do it. We find valuable opportunities to innovate by constantly questioning and experimenting. This is how we get results. 

Art and design make our world a better place. We believe beauty gives us purpose and meaning. We choose to work with designers who believe the same. They excel at their craft and thoughtfully create beautiful spaces and environments.

Step-by-Step Strategy

The process              with a conversation.

Everything we do is individualized to you, your current challenges, and your dreams for the future. We start with a quick no-pressure phone call. 

In a 30-minute discovery call, we can discuss what you are hoping to achieve and guide you to the option that is the best fit for you and your budget. 

At the beginning of each strategy service, we state clear goals for working together. They should be achievable and quantifiable. We then craft a tailored step-by-step strategy to reach that goal in the desired timeframe. Finally, with the goals set and the plan made, all that's left is to get to work.

“Renee’s business background and wealth of experience in the Interior Design industry is invaluable. She helped us think through our services, profitability, margins, and strategies and has been an integral part of our growth over the past year.

There are many valuable resources for women in business these days. What set Renee and her services apart for us was her specialized experience in back-office systems - building, creating, and scaling Interior Design services and products to a very high level. She knows our world because she has done the work and done it well.”

“Working with Tandem not only helped give me the confidence to bring my business to the next level, but also provided me with the tools to reach both short-term and long-term goals. They provided honest, constructive feedback, and identified processes and procedures that were working efficiently, and helped refine those that weren't. With their help, I was able to refine my design presentations, my client onboarding process, and build out a more well-rounded and professional suite of information about my company. Always professional and easy to talk to, the Tandem team encouraged me to implement changes that have already had a positive effect on my business.”

Renee with tandem is just that: thoughtful and measured and has been a wonderful support for our studio.”

“Working with Tandem has been the greatest gift to my business and myself. Renee and her team have a wonderful way of instilling confidence and helping their clients find clarity in their processes. I love how adaptable the Tandem team is, making recommendations that fit within my business model and goals, they do not approach things in a one-size-fits-all way. I lovingly say that working with Tandem is my “self care”, that’s how important the team has been for my business. Do not hesitate working with them, it will pay off tenfold in the long run!”
