Money is Not a Dirty Word – Katoomba Business Workshop

Sat 28 Jul 2018
1:30pm – 4:30pm
Blue Mountains Economic Enterprise and Creative Plus Business are delighted to bring another fantastic workshop to the Blue Mountains for professionals in the Creative Industries.

The starving artist is a pervasive idea, and in reality lots of creative people struggle in self-employment because money is a constant battle. This isn’t always just due to lack of funds, however – creative practitioners sometimes just need the basics of business money and financial literacy explained in a way that makes sense.

This surprisingly fun half-day workshop helps creative freelancers and arts businesses practitioners to answer some of the biggest financial questions they might have:
• How do I weather the ups and downs of creative income?
• How do I make more money?
• Do I have to keep working for free?
• What should I charge?
• How do we manage our spending?
• What’s the deal with tax anyway?
• Where can I go for help?

Money is tailored specifically to creative people who are (or want to be) self-employed, and the activities are relevant no matter what your profession – filmmakers, writers, designers, visual artists, performers. Anyone can benefit from learning more about how to strategise to get what they want from creative business.

Funded by the NSW Government Business Connect Program
Business Connect is a dedicated and personalised NSW Government program that provides trusted advice to help you start or grow your small business.

What do I get?
All participants of this workshop also receive:
• A workbook stuffed full of extra resources and exercises in both printed and PDF form;
• Lifetime access to a dedicated Money dropbox folder full of additional resources and help;
• Access to a website full of additional free resources.

This surprisingly fun and informal workshop will leave participants feeling more confident about their financial situation, and provide an opportunity to ask all the questions they’ve always wanted to know.

Who should enrol? Creative industries professionals and arts business people from start-up to established. Freelancers and soloists also welcome.

Who is Presenting? Business adviser and creative industries expert Monica Davidson from the Creative Plus Business Group. Monica is a writer and filmmaker by trade, who learned how to run a successful creative business the hard way and now shares that knowledge with others. In her workshops Monica discusses her own experiences, and shares examples from the 700-plus people she has mentored through the process of starting and building their creative businesses.
