You've come to the no nonsense place that offers practical tips for having more money in your pocket to make music or pursue other artistic endeavors.

I'm a former Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of a record label turned music artist. As CFO, I was the person in charge of all the money. On this blog, I will share my observations and experiences on ways to make more and keep more money. There are many websites that will tell you how to sell more records and book more gigs. I'll have links and point you to sites with great info on that, but my main goal is to lay out the basics in managing your personal and small business finances in a fun and non-intimidating way. I have a degree in Business Economics from UCLA so I know how dry and boring math and Wall St. mumbo jumbo can get.

I don't claim to know it all so I definitely want this blog to be a place where others can chime in with their tips for stretching the almighty dollar. I'll even throw in some singing tips as a bonus.
Best wishes to you from me,
