When money is the right hands it would be used to further a worthy vision as a valuable tools but when it is in the wrong hands it is more than just a simple mean to an end. Therefore, the prospect of money depends on the individual who is using and not with the money. Moreover, money is not distributed evenly among people and there are few who have a lot of money with them and for some it is very scarce. Therefore, depending on the availability of such a useful resource, the going gets easy for the rich and tough for the poor.
Manage It Effectively
You cannot change the scenario overnight and therefore it boils down to effective management of it ultimately. When you manage your available resources, then you would be happy to have more money at your disposal along with more security and options for spending. Management of money is all about what to spend on, how to save more money and where to invest to earn a bit more. The basic necessities of a common man are food, shelter, clothing and transportation but for a musician it is even more difficult for a musician because added to it are the expense for travelling, recording sessions, replication of the CDs and much more.
Develop The Right Habits
When you have the right habits in you managing money becomes very simple and easy and therefore, if you have something bad already in you try to forego it and develop better habits which would lead you to spend less and that too wisely. When you are in debt, admit and realize that there is nothing more crippling than being in debt and therefore, you should try your utmost to stay out of it. It would not only affect your music career but it would affect your life as well. Make some sacrifices in your lifestyle now to get out of your debt and concentrate on your music whole heartedly, being in mental peace. You can always upscale your lifestyle later.
Open A Separate Account
As music is your passion and life, treat it with care and open a separate checking account especially for your music. Most of the band comes up with disputes regarding money and its payments as it is often found that one or two members of the band makes majority of the payment s while others chip in from time to time. You should use it for your music purpose only and start to save all your earn from music in this account.
Save Is Necessary
In all the aspects of life and for all financial requirements saving is necessary. Just like you would save and create a corpus to get out from your credit card debt, you should also save at least ten per cent of the money earned from your music at any cost but essentially in your dedicated account for music. Once you have some little extra income a month and can include into your monthly budget, you would find paying your monthly bills are becoming easy and everything falling into place slowly but surely.
