The Money Talk
We need to understand how money works– no excuses.
"I’LL JUST LEAVE ALL THAT MONEY STUFF TO MY (FUTURE) PARTNER."
Don’t do that. You are a creative and confident woman, and you owe it to yourself (and your partner) to be informed about how you earn and spend your money.
"BUT I’M AN ARTIST."
Instead of seeing money as an obstacle, use it as a tool. Ignorance is not bliss when it comes to your financial education. It’s not about becoming an accountant, it’s about you controlling your money rather than your money controlling you.
"I DON’T KNOW WHERE TO BEGIN."
I recommend reading one or both of the books below. They are quick and easy reads that will address your doubts, and empower you to start being smart with your money. Even if I don't always agree with the authors' sentiments, learning the basics was life-changing.
- Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert T. Kiyosaki
- The Five Lessons a Millionaire Taught Me About Life and Wealth by Richard Paul Evans
Again, you don’t have to be a stockbroker to be smart with your money. A little understanding of finances can give you unforeseen opportunities and make a big difference in your creative path.
