The Retail Academy.
There’s no doubt about it. Opening a retail store takes passion. And guts.
But growing your retail store—taking it from a startup space to a well-loved brand—well that's another story...
Unless you have a mentor who has been where you are and can help you sidestep all the tripping hazards.
A mentor to lay out the exact path she took to grow a globally-recognised brand.
I’m on a mission to help more retail business owners take their retail businesses to the next level.
Whether you want to optimise your current space and earn more, expand your team and schedule more time off, or open another location to widen your sphere of impact, I can’t wait to help you get there.

When I launched my business back in 2009, I had no clue what I was doing or where to begin. What I did have was passion, drive, and a commitment to learn as much as possible along the way. I have always been a creative soul with an entrepreneurial spirit, but my business has grown to heights I never thought possible!
"Tara has been integral to the launch of our business. I met her at a critical sliding doors moment when deciding to take the daunting leap into starting our own business. It was a decision I had been grappling with for some time but after my first meeting with Tara I had the confidence I needed to make that choice. Tara really took the time to understand and consider what we were trying to achieve and its feasibility allowing for her encouragement to come from a really considered place. Since then Tara has become such a supportive and engaged mentor providing much needed guidance and advise. Tara is incredibly authentic and approachable and her wealth of knowledge from business structure, negotiations, sourcing, customer experience and acquisition, right through to marketing is uncapped. Tara is the perfect combination of direct and driven whilst also being supportive and empathetic. She is our business bible go-to and we’re incredibly grateful for her involvement in our business journey to date."
