Managing money as a photographer can be challenging, especially if you do weddings which is very seasonal.

That’s why I brought Carrie Smith on the show today.

Carrie is a financial coach, writer, and the founder of Careful Cents. After paying off all her debts in 2012, she quit her full-time accounting job a year later to pursue entrepreneurship and blogging. Her advice has been featured on The Huffington Post, Glamour magazine, Lifehacker, Yahoo Finance, Business Insider, and many more.

In this episode of the SFP podcast we’ll be discussing how to manage an irregular income as well as how to establish a relationship with your client upfront so getting paid never becomes an issue.


What You’ll Learn

  • The #1 thing that you MUST do to make working with clients less stressful
  • How to handle off season income
  • The downside of becoming friends with your clients (and the BRILLIANT trick you can use to bring up uncomfortable topics i.e MONEY with them)
  • What a “Money Day” is and why you NEED to set one up with yourself

The Podcast brings you all the experiences I learned along the way...minus the cornfields and living room education.
