Why Personal Finance?
At thChrch, our mission is to help creatives make a living doing what they love to do.
Over the past five years, we've helped musicians, bands, artists, filmmakers, and content creators improve their careers by focusing on one important aspect of career growth: Personal Finance.
While most might be in a hurry to focus their time and effort on things like marketing, touring, making their next feature film, or releasing their next album, what they entirely miss is one very important fact:
If you can't effectively manage the money you already have, making more money will only make your problems worse.
With our Personal Finance for Creatives Program, we work with you one-on-one to develop and execute a plan to completely revamp your personal finances.
Our one-one-one consulting covers:
- Creating a Zero-Based Budget
- Saving for Emergencies
- Paying off Credit Card Debt
- Creating a Safety Net
- Investing for the Future
Our consulting strategy is designed to be direct and to-the-point so that you can get back to doing more of what you love to do: creating.
HOW IT WORKS
Initial Exploration Call (15 Minutes)
In our initial video call, we'll get an overall view of your goals, plans, and current financial situation. We'll learn about your debts, your savings, your current income, and your biggest stressors.
We understand that some of this information can be sensitive or a bit uncomfortable to talk about, which is why your information is and will always be 100% confidential.
We'll use this initial call to get the "big picture" and create an individualized plan moving forward.
First Video Call (50 Minutes)
In our first consulting call, we'll help you to create a comprehensive Zero-Based Budget.
This interactive planning tool will bring together your income, expenses, savings, debts, and investments.
We'll also help you understand how to make use of this tool on a weekly basis to make sure that you're consistently moving in the right direction.
Second Video Call (50 Minutes)
In the second call, we'll help you better understand your debt, your credit score, and the many options you have to get out of debt or restructure debt (if you have any).
We'll also show you some important apps and tools you can use to get a comprehensive analysis of your credit score for free.
By the end of this call, you'll have a solid plan to improve your credit score and get rid of unnecessary debt.
Third Video Call (50 Minutes)
In our third call, we'll talk about Investing.
One of the aims of the third consulting call is to show you how easy investing can be.
We'll talk about different kinds of investment accounts like Roth IRA's or Brokerage Accounts, and we'll help you figure out which ones are best for you, depending on your unique situation.
We'll also show you some different kinds of investment vehicles that can save you time and energy.
We'll talk about how you can start getting ready for retirement and how you can create an investment portfolio that requires a few hours a year to manage.
Note: We do not invest your money for you, but we will show you some effective strategies to ensure that you're getting the most out of your money and saving time along the way.
