After hearing one of the best pieces of financial advice from a business girl I admired (“Crunch the numbers. Always crunch the numbers.”) I’m now an incredible stickler when it comes to tracking exactly where my money goes.
Looking back on this year, 80% of my income is tax deductible in either classes (acting, improv, coachings for auditions, etc.), film projects (paying crew, crafty/catering, equipment rentals, locations), or other applicable things like fees to submit to festivals, new equipment, film related books or entertainment research (you can write off watching movies when you’re an actor because it legitimately ties to your job hahahaha).
I’m really proud that I’ve been able to budget my money and invest so much into myself, but I’m also like holy shit when you look at the big picture.
hashtag keep working.
