when was the last time you got undivided attention?
We help startups, solopreneuers and other small businesses in the health, wellness and outdoor recreation industry grow into successful enterprises. How we do it? By providing hands-on finance & operations management support and focused, undivided attention on profitability, brand positioning and sustainable growth of your business.
Founded in 1997 tesigns started as a web design and IT-management consulting company. Our focus at that time was on providing online management solutions for startups, small businesses and sole proprietors in the health, wellness and outdoor recreation industry.
With more and more IT-based management tools finding its way into the areas of business development and operations, the need for professional expertise in IT-management as well as in hands-on operations & finance management became evident.
tesigns responded accordingly and added finance and operations management services to its portfolio. Since 2006 we have been providing a blend of IT, finance & operations management to small businesses around the world.
Today tesigns is the holding of two additional ventures:
- studio tesigns, a web design & development studio that designs, builds, and manages beautiful websites for health & wellness businesses
- the wellness agency, a boutique wellness travel marketing firm that brings curated wellness travel & retreat collections to destinations, festivals and health-conscious travelers around the globe.
The core of our business remains the interface of technology, creativity and hands-on management and we will continue to work with heart-centered entrepreneurs who strive to make a positive difference in this world.

We keep our focus on integrated solutions: clean, uncluttered, easy to maintain business management and marketing tools that let you automate certain processes and fully integrate with your finance management, operational and customer relationship systems. That way you will have to spend less time worrying about how and when to get things done and have more time available for product development, your customers and the things that matter most to the essence of your business.
Holding on to the vision of your business while following through on continuous development and day-to-day management is not easy. There will always be challenges, distractions, and more important things to do. This is where we can help: We map out a project plan and then stay focused on daily management tasks, development of new revenue streams and ongoing marketing initiatives, making sure that things keep on moving in the right direction at the right time.
We value clarity and transparency, follow through on our promises and deliver on time and within budget. We know precisely what our core strengths, expertise, and competencies are and that’s where we work from. We are not affiliated with any service providers, which means that we will give you our unbiased opinions about the pros and cons of business management and marketing tools and help you implement what works best for you and your business.
We help you select solutions that are the right fit for your business and encourage sustainable growth. Sometimes bootstrapping is the answer and a combination of free, open source systems will do the job. Sometimes paying a small monthly or one-time set-up fee will be your best option. And sometimes the one & only big service provider will be the right choice. We help you find the right solution so that you get exactly what you need, want, and can work with.
