Short Description:
Want to sell your art or crafts, be hired as a GM, or turn some other hobby into a side (or full time) hustle? Come learn how to evaluate viability, and avoid common legal and financial pitfalls.
Long Description:
Many people turn their hobbies into successful businesses. But plenty others make errors early on that cost them time, money, and even their love of the hobby. Still others never try at all, fearing exactly such a negative outcome. Do I need a business license? When do I have to pay income tax, or sales tax? What do I need to charge to make a profit? Whatever your hobby, this workshop provides answers to many of these questions, and a clear blueprint (with lots of handouts) on how to find answers for the rest for your specific hobby and location. Facilitator Tobi Mattingly is an Enrolled Agent (licensed tax pro) and provider of small business services, working with artists, performers, creators, and hobby-entrepreneurs of all stripes for more than a decade. She's also a creator herself, having worked over the past 25 years as an actor, director, musician, and game designer.
