Financial Advice Custom-Tailored for Tattoo Artists
NEVER UNDERSTOOD YOUR FINANCES? WISH SOMEONE COULD HELP YOU MAKE SENSE OF IT ALL? YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE.
This may sound familiar
(and that's ok!)
Have you ever been scared to look at your checking account because you knew you wouldn’t like what you saw?
You knew you were cutting it close.
You were praying for that next appointment to show up…and hopefully leave a big tip.
Do you hate tax time every year?
You keep telling yourself you should set up a system to get organized but you aren't sure where to start.
Would you like to know what it’s like to not stress about money?
Imagine being able to open that banking app and see…
- A healthy checking account with enough to make it through not just this week, but through the entire month without issue
- A savings account that’s full and ready to cover any emergency expense
- An account with enough set aside to cover your taxes
- Investment accounts that are growing and on their way to providing you financial freedom
How would that feel?
That’s the feeling you'll get after we start working together.
You’ll have confidence in your money decisions.
You’ll know exactly what’s coming in and where it needs to go. (and it's automated)
You'll have a system in place to reduce tax stress.
You’ll have clarity on what’s important to you and what you need to do to make it happen.
No more wondering if you're making smart money decisions!
My name is Colton Etherton.
I'm The Tattoo Artist Advisor. I'm also a Certified Financial Planner™ practitioner and the owner of Out of the Office Planning.
I've worked in finance for nearly a decade. I've worked in most of the typical finance roles - multiple roles at banks, a representative at investment companies, and as an advisor/managing principal at a smaller independent firm (we managed close to $200 million for our clients but that's still considered small in that area).
I got tired of helping people that we already wealthy and retired, or very close to it. Don't get me wrong, my clients were great. But I wanted to help people earlier on in their journey. That's why I started my own firm.
So why focus on helping tattoo artists? Because I fucking love what you all do and I love working with people that are self-employed (there are a lot of fun financial planning areas that I can nerd out on).
I've been married to my best friend, Bri, for a decade 🤯 (she's a badass pediatric nurse). We have 2 kids (with a 3rd on the way) and two dogs. We are both originally from Arizona and escaped to Portland, Oregon in 2016.
If I'm not diving into finances, you can catch me reading, playing Mario with Nixon, drawing with Piper (something I picked up after working with artists), camping, or paddle boarding/kayaking if the weather is nice.
