It’s time to level up.

You’ve finally done it! All your hard work has paid off, and you can finally treat yourself without fretting about having money for groceries. And being able to buy those ah-mazing boots you just found (without having to renegotiate your entire week’s budget) is a freakin’ dream come true.

We all know that being an artist is messy, but it seems to have turned into a hurricane that’s torn through your workspace. In addition to that hurricane (or is it a tornado? I’m in the South, y’all!) there’s all the other messes… your schedule, your email, your social media…. you have the very best of intentions, but you’re spinning in so many directions and your squirrels are running free.

Hi! I’m Amanda Sue, the quirky brain behind Cheeky Visionaries.

 I know what it’s like to dream big dreams, but feel like you’re drowning in dishes. As a wife and mother, I’m used to wrangling crazy schedules, and dealing with the random chaos that comes from little dirt devils running around.

From working a chain of administrative jobs, to being in the military, to running a business with 5 munchkins running around, I’ve learned a little bit about systems along the way. I’m not a fan of strictly regimenting things, and I don’t jive with one-size-fits-all solutions.

What You Should Know

Down with filing cabinets.

Okay that’s the first thing you need to know about me. I won’t tell you that you need those grey-beige-greige-nasty filing cabinets. Ever. I won’t sell you on a snazzy organizational system that you can pick up for a cool 2 grand.  And I’ll be darned if I’m going to tell you that the key to a happy life is to get up at 5 am.

I’m a big fan of figuring out what your schedule looks like, and what your personality is like, and creating a system that works just for you.

These are busy woman friendly.

The first call of the month will be about 35-45 minutes so we can really lay the ground work, but after that it’s a weekly call (Skype or Google Hangout) and we’ll keep it between 10-15 minutes. Like my mama used to say about writing essays “it should be like a woman’s skirt… long enough to cover the subject, but short enough to be interesting.”

In between those calls, I’m available for email support. You can email me to your hearts content, and I’ll respond with in 24 hours (unless it’s a holiday, or my birthday… which is practically a National holiday).

I’m multipassionate.

I don’t just work with creatives, I AM creative! I’ve dabbled in everything from painting to crocheting to quilling (yes quilling…  not quilting, that’s next on the list!). So I want this to be fun.

How does this work?

Okay so let me give you the breakdown.

You click the handy-dandy button below, and you schedule a call. Then you wait anxiously with bated breath by the computer for the ding of my email coming in. Just kidding. You go get some work done like the boss-girl you are, eat dinner, put the kids to bed, and hang out with your hubby to catch up on So You Think You Can Dance.

When we have our call, we’ll have a chill time and see if we hit it off and become besties. (Liking cilantro is part of the test… just kidding… maybe).

If we click (which of course we will, because duh we’re both awesome!) then I send you an invoice. If we don’t click or the timing is wrong, than no hard feelings (and we can still be buds).

You pay the invoice and I’ll send over a questionnaire to get a better understanding of your struggles (#thestruggleisSOreal). Once I’ve received your answers, I’ll dig in create a plan of attack. And that’s when we have our first call. We go over the things you need help with the most… where can we put systems into place, that will make your life easier & give you more time to do the things you really love… like watching Frozen for the millionth time spending time with your kiddos.

I 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.

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.

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.

Examples of Areas We Can Work On

  • How and when to raise your prices
  • Bringing in another passion of yours, in a way that makes sense
  • Oooh! There’s a hot new social media! How should you use it for your biz?
  • Bringing on team members (and learning how to relinquish control)
  • Wrangling your email
  • Blending multiple schedules together/working crazy schedules
  • Running a business while homeschooling
  • Working around kiddos

This is just a starting point. Anything else you may want coaching on can be discussed during our call.
