Are you an actor, artist or creative professional who...
And are you open to...
This is the answer you’ve been looking for!
Artist’s Prosperity 101 is designed to take you step by step through the actions that will finally put you in the financial driver’s seat. We will show you how to start tracking your income and expenses in a way that makes the most sense for an artist, then identify the most common financial pitfalls artists make—mistakes that can wind up costing you a lot of money! You will also learn how to set up your "financial filing cabinet," an essential foundational step for anyone running a business—because that is what your artistic career is!
You'll get all the information you need in simple, manageable chunks so you can do what you need to, but never get overwhelmed!
We are simply not taught in school or college how to handle our finances!
Most of us lack even the most basic skills and understanding as to how money works, let alone how to earn and plan in such a way that allows us increased freedom to do the things we really want.
For artists, this lack of financial education—combined with inconsistent earning patterns, the need to support basic life expenses and the expenses of building an artistic career—can have truly devastating financial results. After years of struggle, many artists are forced to quit and leave their dreams behind—not because of a lack of talent, desire, or even a willingness to work hard—but simply because they are no longer able to sustain themselves financially.
We tell ourselves we’ll get financially organized, create a plan, handle our debt, start saving and maybe even take a look at investing as soon as “we get that big break” and/or “things are just a little bit better.” We wait for luck to knock on our door, promising ourselves we’ll become wonderful money managers the very moment we have a bit of money to manage.
And year after year we find our financial situation staying the same or perhaps even growing steadily worse. The occasional money “windfall” doesn’t last long and somehow it always seems like we’re just catching up. We stop seriously setting financial goals since most of our time and energy is spent trying to get the bills paid every month.
It doesn't matter if you're an Actor, Writer, Musician, or Dancer, a Flame-thrower, Bead Maker, Graphic Designer, or Ventriloquist's Dummy—financial stress is the number one killer of artistic aspirations!
It doesn't have to be that way.
Stick your head in the sand and pray it will change.
You could change course—exactly what most artists refuse to do when it comes to their financial organization! If you want a long-term artistic career, you must get a handle on what we at Abundance Bound call your Financial Starting Point!
It is critical that you figure out exactly what you’ve been doing with your money up until now and then establish a system that allows you to track what you do with your money from this point forward.
Not only does this give you a clear picture of where you are financially, but it is also necessary to establish the legitimacy of your artistic business in the eyes of the IRS—something we'll deal with a little later in greater detail.
Clarify your starting point in 4 essential steps.
Step 1. Set up a Financial Filing Cabinet.
Pursuing an artistic career is challenging enough without adding the stress caused by the build-up of clutter. You will learn a simple but effective system for coping with the overwhelm that comes from trying to organize all of your financial paperwork.
Step 2. Learn how to properly use a Profit and Loss Statement.
A Profit and Loss statement will allow you to determine whether you are making or losing money each month. It will provide you with the detailed information you need to make necessary changes and adjustments so you can actually chart a path towards your career and financial goals. We’ll teach you how to stop guessing and really get specific about the ways in which money moves in and out of your life.
Step 3. Establish and track your personal Net Worth.
Complete financial clarity requires knowing the total value of everything you own, minus the total value of everything you owe. We’ll help you assess your current Net Worth so you can begin the process of eliminating your debt and building your assets.
Step 4. Separate your Personal Income and Expenses from your Business Income and Expenses.
When you “co-mingle” your finances you are not running an artistic business, you’re really just struggling to support an expensive hobby, which can have hugely detrimental effects on your long-term success. If co-mingling is identified by the IRS, it can prevent you from taking perfectly legitimate tax deductions and significantly increase the tax you owe. We reveal the critical steps you must take as an artist to maximize your earnings by properly structuring your career like the business that it is.
We'll show you exactly how to do it all!
Create an environment that is truly conducive to taking control of your money so you can pursue your artistic career from a place of genuine financial stability!

All members of The Abundance Bound Creative Team are artists and business
owners. We’ve spent many years figuring out what works, and as significantly,
what doesn’t work for all of us creative professionals. Now we’re sharing
that knowledge with you. Our programs are fun and they are inspiring, but
they are also practical and will get you into action. We
won’t just show you that you need to do something and then leave you to guess
what that something is. You’ll receive financial tools that are simple and
clear, but also extremely powerful and effective.
Our goal in creating Artist’s Prosperity 101 was to develop a financial foundation program that would be truly accessible to every artist.
Its weight in gold...
With this program we're starting a movement of artists able to pursue their craft free from the weight of financial stress. We believe all individuals deserve a financial fighting chance, and this class, at this price, illustrates our commitment to that belief.
With that in mind, let’s just recap for a second everything that you’ll receive in this course.
Four weeks of spectacular...
And don't forget...
Money is money.
We're aware that products like these can often cost you $600, $500, or even $250. For some of you, that induces a tightening of the chest, and you find yourself breaking into a cold sweat, scanning for the nearest exit.
We want everyone who has the desire to take action to have an opportunity to participate in this powerful course. Our intention is for you to receive this information at a price that sends a happy message to your nervous system. A relaxed artist is a creative and prosperous artist.
Your entire investment to participate in Artist’s Prosperity 101 is only $75!
(Cue shrieking, fainting students.)
Let’s get really honest.
At this moment we privately know whether we’re on top of our financial situation. We either have specific numbers as to how much we are earning and spending or we’re vague and more than a little confused. Our financial filing system is efficient and organized or relatively chaotic.
We cannot expect to build lasting artistic careers on crumbling financial foundations.
When you think about it, $75 is an insignificant amount to pay for the information and tools you need to start putting a solid foundation in place. We know we’re practically giving this program away. But we at Abundance Bound are committed to offering the most up-to-date and practical guidance around, at the most affordable price—period.
So there it is.
This special price may not last. We're fickle that way. Learn with us, take back the control of your finances and live the creative and abundant life you know in your heart is possible.
Well, that's about it.
Reserve your spot now and receive your introductory materials immediately.
Join the movement and start your journey to financial stability. We look forward to working with you!
To your prosperity,
Miata Edoga & The Abundance Bound Creative Team
