"Rhea has helped me take the business to the next level and understands what I'm saying even before I say it or think I need it.

A very intuitive business savvy ecommerce professional. Down to earth, trustworthy and genuinely cares for her clients."

"I met Rhea while both working a ‘day job’ in retail part-time. Very early on we discussed the option of collaborating on a website for my business. I had previously had a physical premises for my shop, but moving cities had meant I needed to pivot, and find a new way of working.

My previous website had been through a subscription service, where I opted not to pay for the shop module – my website was simply a landing page, with a few pages of text and photos. To begin with, I wasn’t ready for the next step but I knew it was a goal for the future, for my business.

A further life change meant that this year would be the right time for me to launch a website shop for my business – I was expecting my first baby!

Rhea and I first agreed on a budget we would stick to, and a timeline for the build. She was very flexible, however, when my baby arrived early and we needed to put the website launch on hold.

Rhea provided me with a checklist of clear tasks that I would need to complete in order to finish the website for my launch. She was very responsive to any and all questions I fired through to her on her social media accounts, and patient with me and my new timeline (I kept shifting the date, based on how much I had (or had not) achieved).

We have set some future goals for the website, that we will work on down the track, but I am very happy with this first iteration of my web shop.

All of my customers have been very impressed with the work Rhea has completed for me. My website is very useable, and I will continue to add stock around my baby’s schedule.

Rhea definitely understood my business, my values, and my aesthetic – beyond ‘just’ delivering me with an out of the box website. I’m very impressed and look forward to working with Rhea in the future."
