Founded in 2007
Polaris was founded in 2007 so Tara could stay at home with her growing family by using her Management degree from Indiana University and her innate skills as an organizer to help other small business owners, large companies and even non-profits.
Since the beginning of time, humans have been turning to the stars for guidance and direction. You can turn to the team of concierges at Polaris to guide you to increased productivity and increased time to do what you WANT to do instead of what you need to do!
Through the years the focus has remained on small business owners, but we recently expanded to offer personal concierge services to busy families and other individuals. Accountability coaching is a service that will be offered beginning in July 2020 to further support the needs of clients.
Tara L. Arick
Founder and Concierge
Tara is a small business owner, but is first and foremost a mom to three daughters. She loves coming to the aid of her clients with her resourceful nature and persistent attitude. A minor in French led her to live abroad in Switzerland and France, which encouraged a global perspective and outlook in life. Although she currently enjoys living in Chicagoland, her favorite place is on the beach in her home state of Florida! View Tara's bio here.

Certificate achieved for DE&I in the Workplace
The University of South Florida Muma College of Business created and executed a very high-level course for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion in the Workplace. Like most of us, I thought I was pretty inclusive. I learned much during the 17 hours and can honestly say that Polaris Concierge is a better, more inclusive business due to obtaining this certificate.
