Ask an artist, a musician, an actor, or a graphic designer, and each and every one will tell you the same thing: To have the money to create, you have to be creative with your money. If you’re lucky enough to have found the perfect career for you, one that lets you showcase your talents and keeps your creative juices flowing, congratulations! However, Peter knows the dirty reality most of you are all too familiar with: Even when your creative juices are really flowing, that doesn’t necessarily mean that money is pouring in at the same pace. In The Financial Freedom to Create, Peter offers a myriad of stories of heroines of past and present with valuable advice for doing just that, including:
• How to know which of your creative talents are the most marketable and can earn you the most money
• How to take the “free” out of freelance and charge what you’re worth
• Why you should avoid the pitfalls of accumulating too much debt in
a lean time—and should always remember the importance of saving in a boom time
• Remembering that you can succeed in your endeavors without selling your creative soul
• How to find the funds to finance your dreams
Full of eye-opening facts, instructive anecdotes, and real-life stories The Financial Freedom to Create is your guide to getting a financial life—so you can maintain your creative one.

DETAILS FOR ALL COURSE DATES
Peter de Kuster is a story teller, writer and cinema lover who mashes the art of story with the science of passion and happiness. He believes that great tales are never just seen or heard, they are felt – and has devoted much of her life and career to understanding story, human passion and happiness- and how together they can change us. His study into the power of storytelling sparked his interest in creating a new kind of travel ‘the heroine’s journey’. Peter consults to a range of creative entrepreneurs; regarding what it is to thrive; what makes a great story; and how the two will play an increasing role in perhaps our most omnipresent form of storytelling today – creative entrepreneurship. Dream projects incorporate strategy, culture, ideas, and human happiness. Peter never lets much time pass before hitting the cinema, and he believes wholeheartedly that film, story and song have sparked more ‘aha’ moments than traditional coaching ever has.
