From the Publisher
The Affluent Artist invites artists from all walks of life to throw out the stereotypes about art and money and allow financial abundance into their lives. Whether you've been learning to train dolphins for SeaWorld, working as a Broadway dancer or as an Imagineer for Disney, chances are you've been learning about the craft, not about personal finance. This book offers business and financial planning wisdom to creative individuals who find themselves in the roles of the Starving Artist, the Corporate Artist, the Self Employed Artist and the Affluent Artist. The book includes stories and interviews with artists in each of these roles as well as "Financial Stuff You Just Gotta Know," a humorous and necessary primer on financial terms and situations, as well as a how-to on avoiding financial pitfalls along with a business fable based on Rick DiBiasio's years of experience helping artists find their financial footing.
