SEA is pleased to work with students from North Central College's Enactus team on borrower's education and financial literacy for current and emerging artists.  With the help of SEA Board Member Gary Vaughan and SEA Director Amy Rogers, students have created a #FinancialFriday campaign as well as other programming to help educate creatives about borrowing money as well as overall financial management.

A Guide to Money Management


This guide was created to provide guidance and understanding for individuals interested in pursuing a creative career. This resource offers an understanding to successfully manage the financial component of your creative endeavor. Many creative degrees and backgrounds often do not contain coursework in business or accounting, much of which is crucial for managing a successful creative business. The Conscious Creative: A Guide to Money Management offers practical information so that we, as creatives, may continue to grow and do what we love. This project was student led and modeled after on of Gary Vaughan's Business bluprint booklets. Additional assistance was provided by SEA.  This project was funded in part through a Sam's Step Up for Small Business Grant to North Central College's Enactus team.


Utilizing Gary Vaughan's Financial Literacy worksheets, NCC Enactus students  developed 52 weeks of tweets which are sent every Friday. Take a look below for our tweets as well as others using the #Financial Friday.
