Do writers ever get to the point where they don’t have to worry about money? Probably not. Most of us must have a budget. Today Kathi talks with financial coach Cassie Rajewich about how to launch a writing career on a budget.

Here are her three key points: 

  1. Have a side hustle. 
  2. Have a system.
  3. Have a team. 

Want to go more in depth on those three points? Check out Cassie’s Three Budget Must-Haves printable that she wrote just for Writing at the Red House listeners!

Finding the right budget is life-changing. So, Cassie will be back later in June to help us create our own budget. Sign up here to be notified when future episodes are released.
