Why choose The Framework?

12 months of high-touch support

A full year of mentoring, support, education and community to help you start, scale and refine your interior design business. Weekly Q&A calls and our exclusive Framework Slack channel allows us to connect regularly and help you move forward.

Action and accountability

A focus on action, accountability, solutions and forward momentum so you can make progress. I’m here to help you get out of your head and out of your own way so you can grow and achieve the results you’re aiming for.

Flexible mentoring that meets you where you’re at

Open forum mentoring that doesn’t follow a set weekly or monthly curriculum, meaning you can get the support in the areas you need, when you need it.

Dial into the weekly Zoom Q&A sessions and connect with your fellow Frameworkers in our exclusive Slack channel, or watch the recordings back in your own time and join the calls when you have something specific you want to work through. The choice is yours.

Choose your own adventure with self-paced learning

Binge the Framework video modules all at once and do the actions later, take your time and work through the course content and resources one-by-one, or jump straight to the sections that are most relevant for you. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach to business, and there’s no ‘right’ way to do The Framework. You’re in the driver’s seat.

A supportive community of like-minded designers

Working for yourself can be isolating, but it doesn’t need to be. Connect with fellow Frameworkers as part of The Framework community where you can share knowledge and experiences, celebrate your successes, workshop solutions to your current challenges and build lasting relationships with others in the industry.

Open to varied levels of experience

Regardless of whether you have zero design experience or 10+ years, you’ll find a mountain of resources, skill sessions and more available, which will drastically improve the day-to-day running of your design business. Use the lot, or cherry pick based on your needs.

You’ll benefit from the diverse backgrounds, past career paths and experience levels within the community.

Lifetime access to course content and resources

You’re never really ‘done’ when it comes to running your own business. Lifetime access to The Framework course content and resources allows you to do a refresher if you need to down the track and complete any outstanding actions when you’re ready. This includes access to any future updates and upgrades.

What’s included?

The Framework Course

A five module, self-paced course with snackable video modules covering essential topics to help you grow.

Think of it as design school 2.0, covering all things related to the business of interior design. Lessons are engaging, informative and provide actionable exercises for you to complete at your own pace, giving you confidence and clarity on what to prioritise next so you can move your business forward.

About your mentor, Rhiannon Lee – Founder & Designer

My background

  • With 15+ years experience in corporate marketing and a focus on product development and innovation, I’m well placed to help you design your dream services and curate the inclusions to maximise your clients’ experiences.
  • I have 6+ years running my own global e-design business, servicing over XX clients in Australia, the US and beyond. My processes, documents, templates and learnings have been tried, tested and optimised.
  • Through my X+ years mentoring, I’ve helped many designers and creatives like yourself refine their services, marketing and processes and get clear on their unique path forward to success to drive lasting change.

    Rhiannonn Lee

    My approach

    • My mentoring style is real and relatable. As a mum to three busy young boys, I know all too well what it’s like to manage ‘the juggle’. I’m still very much in the season of sticky hands and toddler tantrums. So, regardless of whether you’re a parent yourself, studying out of hours or running your business as a side hustle – rest assured, I’ve walked in your shoes before and I’m here to support you as you navigate your way through it.
    • I’m realistic about the hard work it takes to launch a business, while also being committed to showing you a path forward that doesn’t focus on wearing busy as a badge. Instead, we focus on smart processes, progress over perfection and targeted marketing to get results.
    • Success looks different for everyone. While I’m 100% here to help you reach your financial goals, I know that striving for a six or seven figure business isn’t everybody’s definition of success. I’ll work closely with you to design a sustainable business that allows you to do the work you love and get paid what you’re worth without sacrificing family or going down the path to burnout.
    • I’m deeply invested in the success of every Frameworker, because what’s better than running one successful business – being part of 70+ successful businesses!

    STARTING FROM SCRATCH

    The ULTIMATE

    “lifestyle business sweet spot”

    with high profits.
    5 hour work days and a learn, remote team.
    It’s trhee – five year jouney from start to finish.

    (And, oh so very worth it.)

    Why I started The Framework

     

    As a fellow designer and solo business owner, I know how challenging, lonely and at times boring it can be to run your own business. I created The Framework to share what I’ve learnt over the years to the community of Frameworkers – helping you start, scale and refine your design business (and have fun along the way too!).

    The Framework is the accumulation of all the things I wish I knew earlier in my own business journey. It’s the result of years of testing and learning through the ups and downs of starting and growing a design business. And while there are some pre-recorded components, this isn’t your average online course. I’m heavily involved in the group on the daily, so you’ll have direct access to me as you need it.
