Comics Are Great! 72 – Living Well On Less with C. Spike Trotman and Laurianne Uy
Finances, Poorcraft, Polterguys, Mini-Comics, and more!
The hard fact of it is, few people make a ton of money at this comics jazz. And while we’ve talked about creating various streams of income in past shows, we’ve yet to talk about how to get more out of less of our financial resources!
We’re joined this episode by C. Spike Trotman, author of Poorcraft: The Funnybook Fundamentals of Living Well on Less, for a talk on facing the inevitable cruelties of managing one’s finances. We also have in-studio guests Laurianne Uy and Dave Carter who provide some tips and tools to help you make a budget and stick to it!
And Sharon Iverson of the Ann Arbor District Library returns for another round of great book talks!
