Over the past few months, we’ve been showcasing our clients at Modern Muse Consulting with a series of blog posts. We think this is a great way not only to highlight the great work they’re doing, but also to connect you with them, too! Last week, we featured Lucy Wendel of Catnip Creative Content. This week, we’re featuring Amanda Davis of dlux Solutions.
Amanda didn’t exactly set out to start her own bookkeeping business. “I got into it haphazardly,” she says. Knowing people always view budget planning as tedious and annoying, she created her own personal budget and fine-tuned the process, to be streamlined and simple to follow. As a self-proclaimed lover of “nerdy challenges,” she found herself enthusiastic by how rigorously she could manage her finances. (Her partner, Brandon, was less enthusiastic, but still finds the benefits from the lack of stress!) She has perfected her process for their own lives, and by making notes and finding tricks to pass down to other people (who would eventually become) her clients. Believe it or not, that started fifteen years ago, and Amanda says she hasn’t even looked at her bank account in ten years. “I don’t even think about it,” she says. “The stress that comes with thinking about when bills are due and how much money you have coming in has completely diminished.”
This kind of budgeting and intentional preparation is what she coaches her clients through. She helps them separate their needs from their wants and uses some simple math to break down a monthly budget and find ways to strategize a little spending money out of it, too. “Think of it like a child’s allowance,” she laughs. “Keeping a certain amount in your account and not having to think about it is a huge stress reliever.”
