The Pauper: Financial Planning for Artists, Web site review by Sara Buckwitz
Because artists should never have to die penniless, four artists got together to create The Pauper Web site -- a place 'dedicated to helping the artist and entertainment community get a better handle on their money and finances.' The two-month-old site includes everything from financial overviews to specific interactive financial plans, from general business news to in-depth articles on relevant topics like avoiding bankruptcy. Written in plain English, 'The Starving Artist Guide' section of the site explains why you need to plan your financial future and offers suggestions on how to go about it. For those who get sick of all the jargon, 'The Money Can Can't' article provides a useful bit of relief, exploring the limitations of monetary wealth. Chief Executive Officer John Brindle says they created the site, because 'We believe, that to succeed in the 21st century, artists not only have to be skilled in their chosen profession, but be business savvy as well.'
