Money is the lifeblood of any creative business, but financial literacy can be a real struggle for creatives. Navigating the numbers is not always a happy place, emotions can be overpowering, and maths is frequently yukky. This is a surprisingly fun and practical workshop designed specifically for creative learning styles (with pictures!), that answers some of the big scary financial questions.  Topics will include: weathering the ups and downs of creative income, making financial decisions more easily, working out what to charge and the basics of budgeting and cashflow projection. All participants will also receive lifetime access to a dedicated Dropbox folder full of resources and workbooks as well as access to additional free webinars to supplement the material covered in the workshop. This workshop is part of the Equity Health & Wellness Series, supported by the Actors Benevolent Fund of NSW.
