The Start

With a background in musical theater and singing I have always loved finding the best side hustles to make money.

In my early college years I had a love to help others find ways to use their skills and talents to build wealth and crush debt.


This love came from seeing so many amazing creatives who just didn’t make enough to cover their daily expenses … 


After graduating with my Master’s Degree it hit me! I wanted to a life where I could live on my own terms..

 While in college I didn’t have the whole personal finance thing figured out. I knew that the way I was living wasn’t going to lead me to financial freedom.



The beginning wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be.

  • I spent years after graduation trying to figure out how to handle money the right way with a ton of trial and errors.
  • I spent long hours trying to figure out budgeting plans to help me get out of debt, but they never worked.
  • I spent months trying to save money but I always ended up living paycheck to paycheck.
  • I spent many days trying to figure how to make extra money and follow my dreams. 
  • But. I failed! Every single time!

I realized that in order to really have financial freedom I needed to do something different. I needed to change my way of thinking of money.

By the time I hit my 30’s I finally started to map out a plan for my money issues. I began to change my way of thinking and shift my mindset about money.  


I began to gain understanding about how I could finally gain financial freedom while making my dreams into reality. 

Since changing my mindset about money I have been able to create 8 income streams from my side hustle and turn it into a profitable full-time business that earn over $5k every month. I have also paid off over $20k of debt and on my way to becoming credit card debt-free this year.


The Process

I learned that if a person can change their mindset of how they handle money, they can change their whole financial future for the better.

I learned that there are a lot of different side hustles individuals can do while pursuing their dreams to increase income.

I learned that by setting up a budget plan that was fun and effective, it could help me see results quicker.

I learned that if a person learns how to effectively save money each month, they could not only pay off debt faster but they can also increase their income and not be broke at the end of each month.


Because of the lack of resources for creatives to find the best side hustles to create multiple streams of income I decided to create Arts and Budgets!
