I love coloring books. There. I said it. Just kidding, that really didn’t need declaring, yet somehow we feel the need to clarify that we’re using “adult coloring books”, or “Prismacolor pencils”, or *insert expensive art supply here*. Or it’s declared, but as a defiant joke… “I’m tired of adulting, so I’m gonna make a […]
One of the biggest misconceptions about introverts is that they’re shy. However most of my introvert friends aren’t shy introverts. I’m not a shy introvert. So before I tell a few secrets about what my introversion looks like, here’s a quick explanation of what that means. Merriam-Webster defines introversion as: the act of introverting: the state […]
Quite frankly, I don’t remember what it’s like to not be able to read. I don’t remember what it’s like to not know my colors, or numbers, or how to cook. Education is an incredible thing… it not only changes your future, but it re-shapes your past. A similar (and most interesting) thing happens when you […]

I have finally gotten the hang of Thunderbird and multiple email addresses and now have only one super secret email that about 10 people have that forwards to my phone. When I first started this I had way over 10,000 emails in my inbox and told Amanda I felt like I was in a box. I'm now out of the box and I love it!

Since working with Amanda Sue, I've been able to focus on the things I love to do: teaching, writing, photography and creating watercolors. I handed over a bunch of tasks with confidence, because Amanda Sue knows how to work within my brand. She's great at adapting within the parameters of your business, making life and business so much easier. During preparation for my latest launch, Amanda Sue was invaluable to me. Without her, I wouldn't have been able to take breaks or catch my breath. Knowing that someone is working behind the scenes, making your business more successful is the BEST feeling. Knowing that you can just hand over tasks to someone who knows what she's doing is even better. That's what you get with Amanda Sue.

Amanda is a wonderful coach and mentor. She is a creative herself so she understands my work and what I'm trying to achieve, but she's also full of ideas and business know-how so when I come to her with various problems and concerns, she's able to knock aside a lot of the fluff that I'm looking at and show me the bigger picture. She's incredibly supportive, and encourages me to raise prices, host my own content, and put myself out there so that I can succeed. If you're running a creative business, I highly recommend Amanda's unique blend of business and creative/unicorn wrangling.

Working with Amanda Sue for 5 weeks intensely propelled my business forward, into actual existence from mere inklings in my brain. I went from not even knowing the direction of my blog, to less than a month after our last call preparing to launch a brand new online shop, blogging with intention and regularity, and feeling more focused than I ever have in my entire life. Amanda has a way of seeing straight through all the chatter and conversation to plucking out exactly what you mean, and where you should go from there. At the time, I was surprised that the weekly lists we made together were so do-able and simple, but looking back I can see that those simple tasks I might never have gotten to if I were working on this by myself.
Emily of Terminal DistractionI gained some valuable tools while working with Amanda. Maybe the most important one is that I have abandoned my strict hourly scheduling system for a simple to do list. I end each day not only feeling like I’ve accomplished more, but actually having accomplished more. And as a bonus, I usually have a starting point for the next day. Basically I’ve become more focused by being less structured, and it’s not something I would have figured out for myself.Amanda also helped get me rolling with Twitter, which I had zero idea how to use. I have a better understanding of what content to share and how to gain valuable followers on the platform without having to spread myself too thin.
I’ve been given a lot of gifts, but managing organization is not one of them. Amanda was able to effortlessly stand in those gaps and guide me along the steps of not just organizing my busy schedules, but helping me create passion in my ideas within my own heart and those around me.
A unique viewpoint and the ability to not just think outside the box, but destroy the limitations put on us by thinking our creations can be boxed, Amanda’s heart for helping others achieve more than they thought possible shines in all she does.
