“A creative mind is not a linear place to be. Amanda knows how to connect the dots. One of her greatest strengths is her ability to help organize creative talent. I know this from my own experience with her while working on the film “Dream Out Loud.” This was a film I had wanted to make for nearly 20 years, a film about U2 and their relationship with their fans. I had a plan, I could see how it needed to come together, but how do you organize 200 interviews in 5 countries and still stay focused on the story? Amanda took the reigns on the organizational side for me. She contacted each interviewee, set up times and locations, including backup opportunities, to ensure that each person that wanted to be interviewed for the film could be. Every morning I would receive a succinct e-mail with the day's itinerary of interviews, and some notes on each person. All I had to do was concentrate on the story, and how to get them all into the film. She was an incredible sounding board for me as I went through the creative process, and always took care of the administrative details. She made every e-mail and letter we needed to send better. She secured the music licenses needed for the songs I wanted to include. 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. Everything she did on that film allowed me to be as creative as I could be, focused on the story, and because of that, "Dream Out Loud" is a better film. Thank you, Aardvark Girl!”

“Before Amanda ‘Aardvark Gir’ McCune teamed up with us, we struggled to find a business specialist who could cover our unique needs. After two years of working with Amanda, she not only checks a wide variety of boxes - from bookkeeping to interacting with our customer base to coordinating in-depth layers of scheduling from behind the scenes - she does it quickly, efficiently, and with a smile. Amanda excels at anticipating our needs, her attention to detail, and is always cheering for us, doing all she can to help our business grow and thrive. Amanda is smart, savvy, and a great addition to any business needing help with growth and implementing better processes.”

“Before working with Amanda, I was a bit lost. Lost for time! I was nowhere near organized and she walked me through some very simple ways to get a handle on my books and budgets. It just so happens, all the things I don't enjoy spending my time on, are her strengths! Excellent eye for detail and anyone who is running a successful business would benefit from her insight and talents in managing, tracking and reminding!!! Excellent all around, from production, producing, management to bookkeeping.”

“At TVandRadioVoices.com, Inc., we very much enjoying working with Amanda McCune. She’s been a real beacon of light in our business. Before Amanda joined us, it was a struggle to keep up with billing, invoicing and payroll. Since hiring Amanda, everything just gets taken care of. She learned our systems and operates within those and she’s amazing! Amanda has made some suggestions to improve our processes and even client procurement strategies. She spent some real time with us initially and works with us weekly, always available when we need her. Amanda is available, communicative, collaborative and creative. She just makes our business run smoother. I’d recommend Amanda to any business who needs a consultant or business manager. She has so many wonderful skills!”

“Amanda has an ease about her that makes accounting less of a chore. Somehow she manages to engage me in my own QuickBooks, something no other business consultant has been able to do. I look forward to our reviews and her suggestions for my company. She knows her craft and loves to help people.”

My company had been using the same accountant for years and we were very much in a routine. Sometimes being in a routine is very comfortable and it blinds you from looking outside the box. I had known Amanda for years as well, and after a quick consult it became very apparent that our current accounting methods and processes were outdated, slow and costly. Amanda promised that the new software and systems she was putting in place would greatly decrease our accounting hours and save the company money in the end. That’s exactly what happened. Amanda as a consultant is very sharp, well organized and alway responsive when something is needed. She is also very trustworthy. When it comes to your company and its $$$, you better work with someone you trust, and we trust Amanda.
