The Creative Professional's Guide to Money teaches creatives everything they need to know about the financial side of running a creative business.
Creatives - which include anyone promoting their own creative services (designers, copywriters, photographers, illustrators, interior designers, web designers, and more) - are great at their work, but when it comes to running the financial side of their business, most would rather not talk about it. This book focuses on proven techniques and resources used by a wide range of successful creatives to manage their business finances. Expert advisers are interviewed on topics such as accounting, taxes, contracts and financial planning. Using examples, case studies, and real-life stories from actual creatives, this book addresses:
How to build the financial structure of a creative business from the ground up
How to set up and achieve long-term financial goals and plan for a prosperous retirement
Common financial mistakes small business owners make and how to avoid them
How to handle taxes and insurance
How to perform day-to-day accounting tasks
How to create a budget and adhere to it
What to charge for work and how to determine a profit margin
How to talk about money with clients and prospects
