    As a freelance creative, you've been hustling to create a living for yourself. Finally, your finances are in a good place, but how should you prepare for the future? Without a 401k or other traditional savings plans provided through an employer, you're probably wondering how you should invest your money or build your retirement funds. Tom Rizzo, a former music executive turned financial advisor, is here to guide you through 5 steps: establishing an emergency fund, saving a portion of every paycheck, eliminate credit card debt, invest in funds, and find an advisor.
