Books Info:

Arts and Numbers free pdf The creative class--artists, actors, writers, musicians, freelancers, dancers, performers, and the like--are known for applying their passion for creative expression to everything they do. Perhaps the one thing that most fills this group with apprehension and anxiety is the rigid world of numbers. This leads to problems arising from the unconventional financial and business situations of creative professionals, as well as the nonprofit organizations with which they're often affiliated. Finances, budgeting, and business matters can be dreaded, if not outright ignored, by creatives--to the detriment of their artistic pursuits.
Harried scrambles in April with antacid-popping accountants, or anxiety-filled, month-end attempts to scour up money for rent can be frustrating staples for a life artistically led. Artists and nonprofits often must balance uncertain and unpredictable income streams, which can lead to struggles during less-than-prosperous times. More damaging than the inconvenience or frustration of dealing with these issues is the fact that they often detract from creative professionals' true pursuit: their art.
Author, artist, and CPA Elaine Grogan Luttrull has written "Arts and Numbers" to help creative professionals find the same confidence in their financial dealings that they have found in their chosen mode of expression. Ambition, out-of-the-box thinking, and problem-solving skills are common characteristics of the creative class, but for whatever reason those dynamic personality traits are stymied when it comes to numbers. But just as a basic understanding of marketing, social media, public relations, and professionalism is essential to managing one's personal brand, a basic understanding of finance is essential to ensuring the longevity of a creative person's career and the potential success of their craft.
"Arts and Numbers" is an engaging, accessible guide that covers a variety of must-know topics, such as budgeting, cash management, visual charting, financial media tools, taxes, employment, business etiquette, and even nonprofit management. In a simple, straightforward style, Luttrull draws example from smooth-flowing narratives depicting common issues within the arts worlds, as well as personal anecdotes from her own life as a writer, accountant, and entrepreneur. Unlike stuffy textbooks and patronizing business books, "Arts and Numbers" is a lively and artfully done ally in helping creative professionals plan their present financial situations and secure their futures.
