The AFC Lobby Chats: My Income Jigsaw
March 21, 2022, 3:00 - 4:30 PM
Curating a Multi-Income Career in the Entertainment Industry
March 21, 2022, 3-4:30 pm (ET) on Zoom
Many people describe maintaining a career in the entertainment industry as wearing multiple hats or having many irons in the fire. The precarious nature of the industry can often require us to diversify our income sources. For many, it helps achieve financial stability while remaining flexible for contracts as they come up. For others, it can be a way to find fulfillment in their various areas of professional interest, passion projects, and side hustles. Managing several income streams is a valid and undeniable reality of our industry.
This Lobby Chat is dedicated to discussing all things related to having multiple income sources as a professional working in the entertainment industry. Our panelists will bring their own unique experiences on how they navigate:
- time management;
- balancing priorities;
- stress management;
- budgeting for variable income;
- managing the expectations you have for yourself;
- managing the expectations of others;
- work-life balance;
- ways to diversify income.
The panelists will discuss the strategies that help them lower the risk of burnout and financial struggles while nurturing their careers in the entertainment industry.
This Lobby Chat is hosted by The AFC, in partnership with Generator and BC Arts + Culture, as part of The AFC’s Financial Wellness Program, which is made possible through the generous support from Richard Rooney and Laura Dinner.
