Few careers allow for complete control of your creativity and individual expression like a career in the arts. What we often forget to consider is the complete control we must have over our finances as a result of this freelance lifestyle.

In The Business of Show Workshop, we will discuss the three ‘departments’ of your business, or aspects of your career you must keep up and running to be financially sustainable.

They are as follows:

1. Accounting Department - How do you keep track of your money?

2. Sales Department - What products or services can you sell to generate additional income?

3. HR Department – How do you manage healthcare and retirement?

This FREE workshop (sponsored by The Aspire Center) will provide resources as well as tangible actions steps to help emerging artists take control of their finances as they enter the entertainment industry.

Choose between the following dates and times: 4/11 at 4:30pm or 4/12 at 6:30pm.

About the Presenter: Jennifer Latimore graduated from the University of Georgia with a BA in Theatre and an ABJ in Mass Media Arts. She moved to Chicago in 2016 to begin her acting career after spending the 2014-15 season as an Emerging Professional Resident at the Milwaukee Repertory Theatre. Jennifer developed her desire to help artists achieve financial enlightenment when she realized that many of her peers had not received any tools to help them navigate the business of being in the entertainment industry. She began the journey to become an Accredited Financial Counselor® in 2019, a designation that focuses on empowering clients to reach their financial goals through reflection, guidance, planning and action. She recently passed the exam portion of the certification in 2021. As an AFC® Candidate, Jennifer is focused on bringing financial awareness to artists who need it most so that the arts community can not just only survive, but thrive.
