Pay-what-you-can financial planning for low income freelancers

Chris EnnsChris Enns specializes in helping people with variable income get their financial houses in order. The Toronto-based financial planner and opera singer offers online personalized financial counselling services through his practice From Rags to Reasonable.

This fall Enns has added a social enterprise element to his business: pay-what-you-can financial planning services for people who earn less than $30,000 a year as individuals or less than $45,000 as a family.

Ten percent of every dollar that comes into his financial planning business goes towards low-cost financial services for people who can’t afford his regular rates. Enns is also supporting his pay-what-you-can services through a Patreon campaign.

Enns told Story Board recently that the scheme is off to a good start.

“It’s already afforded me the opportunity to work with a few great people who wouldn’t normally be able to afford one-on-one financial help,” he said.

Story Board spoke with Enns earlier this year about how good financial planning can help artists and freelancers maximize their creative potential. You can read that interview right here.
