Book Keeping Advice for Creatives - Interview with Lauren Thiel

Updated: Jan 19



The holiday season is ramping up and the end of 2020 is in sight (something we can all be thankful for!). This period is perfect for reviewing your business, getting organised and maybe updating your financial goals for a shiny new year ahead. Finance and business admin are a couple of those things many small business owners and creatives let slide, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In our December Seminar Session, Lauren Thiel from boutique accounting and financial advisory firm The Real Thiel will talk about the best bookkeeping practices and how to build your financial foundations.


We thought you might like to get to know her a little better, so we asked her to give us the skinny on all things Real Thiel prior to our Seminar Session next week.

TDC: Thanks for chatting with us, Lauren. What does an average day look like for you?

LT: No day is average! We sort of have two ‘seasons’ in this business—it’s busy from April to October and quieter through summer. My day starts with attempting to make my bed in the busy season, is jam-packed with tax returns, and usually ends with me answering emails from my couch with a glass of wine.


I do my best to look after myself and my team through the busy season with decent sleep, good food and some exercise, but it’s tough. There are a lot of clients to help and some deadlines to meet.
