Earn What You Deserve
Playwright Adam Bock recommended this book to my Dramaturgy class at Columbia. A book that inspires confidence, it is definitely helpful for all artists.
Savvy Chic: The Art of More for Less
Definitely a girly read, the book is delightful and hopeful. Johnson's voice is lovely; I come back to this book again and again.
The Four Hour Work Week
An addictive, fascinating read, this book is full of great ideas and tips. I actually started this website after reading this book.
I've also been dying to try out YNAB.
This is a personal home budget software built with four simple rules to help you quickly gain control of your money, get out of debt, and reach your financial goals. You can get a free trial of the program for a week; I'm starting mine this week!
I hope others find these books and YNAB helpful; I've found them enlightening and enjoyable. Whenever I get stressed about money as an artist, I remind myself that at the end of the day, you can always make more money, but you can't get more time. Life is not a rehearsal.
