Financial Well-being for Freelancers - Saturday, February 29th
Nearly three hours of uncommon knowledge: where else can you learn how to budget for your freelance career?
Vlad Busko, a private accountant for some of the DMV's finest media companies and freelancers, is your teacher. From him, you'll learn:
1. Budgeting for the Gig Economy 2. How to plan for savings when you're not working 3. Best practices for taxes 4. When to hire an accountant or when to do it yourself 5. And more! (there WILL be time for Qs and As)
9:30 AM - 12:00 PM at 8775 Cloudleap Ct, Columbia, MD 21045 (Long Reach Community Association) in the Jeffers Room.
Vlad Busko works as an accountant for a private equity firm when he isn't working with his own clients, many of whom are media companies and freelancers in the Tri State Area. (When he isn't working, you'll find him hiking or rock-climbing!)
My goal is the educate people in best budgeting practices, when and how to save, so that they can feel in control of their life and career. As a freelancer, the most challenging thing to figure out is what budgeting style works best for you. My goal is help you figure out the best method for you to achieve your financial goals.
Over almost three hours, we will go over basic need-to-knows for how to not only survive but thrive as a freelancer in your finances.
(Note: Curriculum may change based on class's interests)
The curriculum will cover the outline below.
1. Common budgeting practices
What's the difference between a 9-to-5ers budget and a freelancer? Depends on the season. How much should you save? Are the splits different?
What if I have loans?!?
We'll cover all of this.
2. Tax season
Many people don't realize for some jobs/contracts, you may not need to report taxes. We'll cover when that is and how to go about it.
3. Brief Business overview
Are you ready to start an LLC, LLP or SP? Here's how you'll really know, and what to do to get one registered.
4. Retirement Plans
Believe it or not, most Millenials spend more on coffee than they put into their retirement. We'll go over how to fit this into your financial plan.
