How Can a Financial Advisor Help Authors?


Authors (and other creative professionals) often have complicated, standoffish relationships with money. They know they need it. They work hard to get it. But, when it comes in, they may not know how—or might be simply disinterested in—managing it effectively. A financial advisor familiar with the “author’s life” can help them put together a financial management strategy that not only makes sense to them, but also allows them to feel more confident in their finances now and in their future retirement-age years.

Questions Authors Should Ask Their Financial Advisor


Can I easily change my services and/or pay structure as my circumstances change?

As a writer, your income is likely tied to what you publish, usually in the form of royalties for sales. In this case, your income may be unpredictable and possibly inconsistent. Ideally, your financial advisor can help your finances grow despite that fact, and can accommodate changes in your income by altering your plan.

What are my options for retirement vehicles?

If you are working primarily for yourself, you are likely to have to set up your own retirement account. This is a great financial resource to have to ensure future income, especially if you plan for your writing career to eventually come to an end in retirement.

How can you optimize my taxes?

If you are working for yourself, your taxes will be particularly complicated. Luckily, that also means that there is usually lots of room to reduce your tax payments. A financial advisor can help you get the most out of available deductions and keep your taxes well-organized.

Top Financial Advisors Serving Authors

Financial advisors are money management experts that can help you get the most from your money. If you are an author, an advisor can be a particularly valuable resource, as they can help secure a reliable source of future income that covers you during periods of inconsistent payments. Most importantly, they free up significant amounts of your time and mental energy, leaving you with more for your writing, social life, and other things of importance.

FAQs About Certified Financial Advisors For Authors

The industry standard price charged by a financial advisor is as a percentage of your assets under management, usually between 0.25% and 1%. Many advisors can also accommodate a flare rate or hourly fee structure.
Financial advisors provide financial advice, planning, and management to help you reach your financial goals, while having a minimal impact on your lifestyle.
How can you secure a steady stream of income for me for the future? Are you a fiduciary? For about how long do you think my costs will exceed my returns? Put another way, when will my returns exceed the cost of your services?
If you know any other authors or writers that use a financial advisor, asking them for a recommendation is a good place to start your search. Otherwise, people are increasingly finding their advisors online, where they can easily browse through and compare firms and individuals.
