Harvardwood Presents: Investing Basics for Creatives with David Maurice Sharp

October 11, 2021 at 4:00pm - 6pm

4:00pm PST / 7:00pm EST

Join David Maurice Sharp, author of The Thriving Artist, for this informative and engaging webinar specifically designed for creative professionals.

Getting started with investing does not have to be intimidating–and it’s definitely not just for the wealthy! 

You will learn the elements of a sound financial plan, including assessing your comfort level with risk, the basics of different types of investments, and ideas for creating a portfolio with limited and varying income. 

Demystify the jargon and understand how to begin (or continue!) to integrate wealth-building into your financial life. We will also cover what you need to know about investing amid the Covid-19 crisis.

About the Speaker

DaviMaurice Sharp’s unique background allows him to relate to his audience both as an artist and as a financial professional.  He danced with the Mimi Garrard Dance Theatre from 1993 to 2001, as well as with other companies including Lucinda Childs, Blondell Cummings, Sean Curran, Rachel Lampert, Heidi Latsky, Lonne Moretton, and Anna Sokolow. His choreography has been performed at such venues as Lincoln Center, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, NYC Fringe Festival, La Mama, Soho Rep, Ensemble Studio Theatre, and his video work, Shadow Dance, received a Silver Award from the Dance on Camera Festival.

David was a founding member and initiated the formation of the Thriving Artists Investment Club, a limited partnership established by a small group of artist/friends to educate one another about investing and personal portfolio management.  Through that, he also gained greater insight into how the artist can best be educated about their finances and investing.  For more than a decade, David has been teaching investment workshops at HB Studio, an acting conservatory in New York City. This has provided him with the invaluable opportunity to hone his ideas for educating artists in regard to their finances, and to enjoy the success experienced by those who have implemented the ideas and techniques that he promotes.

In October 2014, David was named a “money hero” for his work in educating artists about their finances by Money magazine. He is the author of The Thriving Artist: Saving and Investing for Performers, Artists, and the Stage & Film Industries and a contributing author to A Life in Dance: A Practical Guide.
