Authors on F.I.R.E.

The dream of every aspiring creator is to make a living selling their art. We ALL dream about hitting the big time and quitting our day jobs. Unfortunately, 99.99% of us still need those day jobs. But what if there was another option? F.I.R.E., or Financial Independence Retire Early, is a movement of regular folks who are learning how to save and invest their money towards buying back their freedom. In this session, author Phillip Drayer Duncan helps our creative friends view finances a little bit differently, teaching the basics of saving and investing, and merging the idea of pursuing creative endeavors with building a financial backbone toward an early retirement. Because we all just want the time to focus on our art. (1 hour. Limit 14 participants.)
