How to Manage Your Money as a Musician

In this episode of DAWCast: Music Entrepreneurship, I discuss how to manage your money as a musician.

In addition to time, money is another area where many musicians tend to struggle and have a hard time getting things under control.

Though learning to manage your money will take some determination and effort, in the end it’s a relatively simple process. That doesn’t mean that it’s easy, however.

In this episode, you will discover:

  • Why you should stay out of debt.
  • How your emotions affect your ability to manage money well.
  • How budgeting well can help you to pay off your debt.
  • How separating your personal finances from your music finances can make it easier to track your spending.
  • How to create a habit of saving.
  • How to plan for future purchases.
  • Why carrying around cash in your wallet will make you a more conservative spender.
  • Why you need to carefully evaluate every opportunity that comes your way.
  • Why you need to learn how to put money back into your business.
  • Why musicians should work towards building multiple streams of income.
