Financial Strategies for Artists and Freelancers Impacted by COVID-19

Financial Strategies for Artists and Freelancers Impacted by COVID-19

Presented by NYFA at Online/Virtual Space

With freelance work abruptly halted, shows and events cancelled, opportunities postponed indefinitely, and service industry day jobs not offering paid leave, many of us are facing serious financial insecurity. There is no roadmap or way to know how or when we will return to business as usual. Let’s acknowledge how real this is and that it is, for many, waking up a fear for our basic survival needs. During this 90-minute workshop, Miata Edoga will share steps we can all take as we navigate this unpredictable time together.

Join this interactive, online Zoom workshop with Miata Edoga for a conversation about navigating COVID-19 as freelancers. Miata is an actor and President and Founder of Abundance Bound, the premiere financial education company for creative entrepreneurs. She created The Artist’s Prosperity System™, which has provided thousands of artists with a step-by-step process to significantly improve their financial situations, giving them more time and freedom to focus on their creative careers in the process. A question and answer period will be open to all in attendance.

Miata Edoga serves as the National Financial Wellness Consultant for The Actors Fund, a human services not-for-profit organization serving everyone working in entertainment. She has led workshops and seminars on financial empowerment for organizations including The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, WGA, DGA, SAG-AFTRA, and The Center for Cultural Innovation. A trained actor herself, Miata’s work is bolstered by her own work in the art.


Zoom access link will be provided upon registration. Participation limited to 300 at any one time; first come, first serve applies.
