#15 - Finances for Actors - Part 7 (Emergency Fund), Part 8 (Retirement) & Part 9 (Debt)

6/12/2019
Emergency Fund: An emergency fund is money that you put into an account in case of a rainy day. Actors – this is not money you use from one job to the next – it’s money kept for true emergencies. I like setting up an emergency fund in a money market account (that’s liquid – aka can sell at any time) that doesn’t show up on my online banking, so it’s out of sight and I’m less tempted to spend it. Experts recommend saving 6-12 months of expenses in your Emergency Fund. **Disclaimer: I...

#14 - Finances for Actors - Part 5 (Monthly Budget) & Part 6 (Compound Interest)

6/12/2019
The dreaded “B” word. Budget: For some reason I shrivel up at the word budget. I associate it with restriction, which I associate with losing weight – it’s just not a pleasant thing for me. But, we do need to know where we are, before we achieve where we’re going. So – here are my tips on discovering how much goes in and out each month (yes, even on an inconsistent actors’ salary). If you have more money going out than in each month there are only two solutions Which one works best...

#9 - My Money Rant

1/28/2018
I might be listening to a little too much Gary Vaynerchuk lately, because I started ranting (speaking passionately) about why I think we should all talk about money and finances. It’s fun to talk about your interests or the things in which you’re an expert, but it’s usually not fun to talk about finances. Money doesn’t buy you happiness, but it certainly buys you choices. You should be planning for your future. Don’t depend on Social Security - it may not be there when you’re old enough to...
