Provide a brief description of your company and the products?
Rendi is a brand new company offering customers the chance to “be the designer” as they create a thoughtful, unique gift for their loved ones. Customers see their gift take shape right online, as they get to customize everything from color scheme to names, dates, quotes, special messages, etc. All items (currently picture frames and other wall decor designed by nationally recognized designers) are made in the USA from planet friendly materials like 100% post-consumer recycled wood and water based inks.
Provide a brief company history including how long in business and how many consultants in how many countries.
Rendi is a new company as of October 1, 2010. However, Rendi is run by folks that have been in the home decor business for a couple of decades, so the experience is there to make Rendi a huge success!
Currently there are between 100 and 200 stylists across the country, but there are several states that still have none!! You could be the first one! I am the first and only in Ohio, so far.

What are some of the additional benefits/rewards consultants can earn?
This first year of Rendi’s business offers a major reward–the chance to earn a spot in the exclusive Founders Club–this opportunity will close in September 2011. There are many other benefits based on sales and recruiting, both in terms of recognition and rewards.
What is your favorite thing about your company?
Do I really have to pick just one thing? I’m not sure I can! I’ll try to keep it short. I love that anyone can get online and in five minutes or so (it can be more if you feel like playing around with our cool customization website!) can create a personalized gift for someone special. I love the technology aspect too–that you create your gifts online, that I can have customers across the country, but that I can also hold home parties where the guests are encouraged to bring their laptops, and they gather around each other’s computers, helping each other design their gifts, sharing ideas for words or quotes to use, and getting inspired by each other. I love that Rendi is socially responsible–all products are made in the USA, with planet friendly materials, and a portion of each purchase goes to charity. But what I love MOST is that words are the inspiration behind Rendi. Words are so powerful–they can put a smile on someone’s face, bring tears to your eyes, lift someone up, encourage someone, make a difference in someone’s life.
What is your favorite product?
My favorite product is the “head over heels” picture frame/clipboard–it is so elegant, and I have decided that for every wedding I’m invited to from now on–I will be personalizing one of these for the bride and groom. JUST beautiful.
