One of my favorite things about blogging has been the freedom to combine two things I love – stage managing and personal finance. Some of my favorite posts to write have been where these two topics meet.
I also appreciate that you all allow me to just rant about my job something – and every once in a while, another stage manager stumbles on my blog, and leaves a comment affirming I’m not the only one who is sick of people thinking they have to be a starving artist, especially the producers who pay us!
