Budget Workshops 

A workshop for independent artists, performers, or contract creatives with irregular income. I'd love to come and talk to your group about a system I've developed to help freelancers get their money issues straight and live their best artistic life! 

Emphasizing strategic daily living tactics, with brief discussion of retirement and tax issues, the workshop offers a systematic approach to finances that will help freelancers understand their budget needs and plan for the pitfalls of the up-and-down income inherent in a contract worker’s financial life.

Especially geared for emerging professional performers, this workshop has been  presented all around the nation, including  San Francisco Opera's Adler and Merola Programs, Wolf Trap Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Utah Opera, Maryland Opera Studio, and Rice University.

Includes presentation, worksheets and a copy of the e-book:
