Finance Resources ~
If you are balancing between building your business and concerned about how to manage your finances with an income that is not consistent, then my friend David M Sharp's book " The Thriving Artist " is a fabulous, practical guide to building wealth.
It is about Saving & Investing. He wrote it for performers, artists, stage & film industry peeps, however, I believe there are SO many great gems in it that I think he wrote it for you.
You can also follow him on his Facebook Page The Thriving Artist where he offers many great tips & tricks to financial stability.
