Can you imagine being a successful writer but having nothing to show for it financially? The person you trusted to handle your money business could be stealing your money right from under your nose and you wouldn’t know it.
Crime writer Patricia Cornwell got tooken for millions from the least likely person, her money manager. That is down right sick! Now more than ever writers are taking the self publishing route; because of that we need to be more diligent about every aspect in our career. It is hard once you become a bestseller to keep track of everything but you need to know at least the basics. Check the amounts going in and out of all of your accounts! It doesn’t matter if you hired an accountant or not.
I have two rules: 1 don’t mess with my kids and 2 don’t mess with my money! I stay with that mentality because you never know.
Writer to writer stay up on everything not just the financial side. You may want to be a writer and that’s it but times has changed. You don’t need to be an expert just know enough so red flags will go off when something is not right. Don’t wait until millions are missing, a dollar should be as valuable as a million. Have you been scammed similar to this writer? Feel free to let us know.
Peace and luv!
