Building healthy financial habits can be a challenge for anyone. In the arts, we have the added complication of managing cash flow, measuring success in creative and financial terms and relying on sometimes uncertain sources of income. This conversational workshop covers healthy approaches to identify realistic business and personal expenses, strategize and identify key metrics to build wealth and plan for tax obligations effectively. The framework for addressing these things revolves around building knowledge, establishing habits (and holding ourselves accountable for those habits), reclaiming control where we can and knowing what to pay attention to in order to meet our creative and financial goals.
