TV/Film Production Manager & Business Coach for Creatives
Helping you manage your business and find the fun in self-employment
Do you need a highly organized and resourceful production manager dedicated to the success of your creative project? I’m here for you.
Does running your business make you feel overwhelmed and stressed out? Let’s find ways to make it more manageable and enjoyable for you.
Dependable Production Partner
Whether on set or working remotely behind the scenes, I adapt to the specific demands of each project. I have the confidence to lead and the humbleness to support. I’m happy to be in charge of the whole job or help you with part of it – whatever you need.
Self-employment struggles are real, but every problem has a solution. I’ll give you honest feedback about what you’re doing well and where I think you can improve. You won’t get any judgment from me – I will work with you to find effective ways to manage your business.
Trusted Business Collaborator
I want your business to succeed as much as you do. It can be scary to let someone else in to help, but your time is best spent focused on doing the things you love. I’ll treat your business with the same level of care I give my own.
How Can I Help You?
Running a business is rewarding, but it requires a great deal of responsibility. It takes dedication and commitment to get to where you want to be. It can be overwhelming working on your creative projects while also managing your bookkeeping, admin tasks, and all that other boring stuff. If you’re having a hard time, I want to help you find out why and offer some strategies that might work for you and your business.
I have a bit of a “tough love” approach at times because I’ve been there, and I want to be real with you. Success comes from doing the work. So, I’ll tell it like it is, but I’ll do it with compassion. Think of me as a bridge between your creative mind and those everyday details needed to run your business.
It’s not about learning to do things my way – it’s about finding a way that works for you. My goal is to help you become more productive so you can enjoy what you do every day.

Business Coaching Packages
A single, no-pressure session to help you with a specific situation or to see if coaching is right for you.
If you’re not sure coaching is right for you, you’re probably not comfortable jumping into a long-term commitment. But if you’re feeling stuck in an area of your business and need some guidance, perspective, or to talk through a situation, a simple commitment-free session can help you find clarity. Sometimes one small step is all it takes to shift from thinking about something to actually doing it.

It was a pleasure working with R&R Partners as a producer on this campaign to rebrand Las Vegas with its new slogan. My focus was coordinating Aerosmith, Christina Aguilera & Shania Twain for their appearances.
“Amanda dares to believe that anything can be achieved because she knows that it is only a function of how hard you are willing to work at it.”
