Working for Love vs. Money

Mostly for Love: ♥

Mathew Janczewski

I’ve always been a big dreamer.

I founded Arena Dances in 1994 after graduating from the University of Minnesota with a BFA in dance, with a vision of becoming a household name in the world of modern dance. Inspired by choreographers and dancers like Doug Varone and Bill T. Jones, I wanted to spend my life creating art for my own touring company.

For years, I was either in the studio or trying to make a buck. I’ve done everything from organizing materials and inventory for a furniture representative to being a gofer for an architect to teaching and working as a caterer. If there was a gig, I would grab it. I remember rushing across a crosswalk in those early years, pieces of my life spilling from the duffle bag I was constantly carrying from work to one rehearsal and then the next.

Around the time I founded my company, I was given a diagnosis that I thought was life or death. It solidified for me that whatever time I have been given on this planet needs to be spent creating dance. I’ve always had these thoughts of movement that I want to get out. I still have journals full of ideas that I haven’t gotten to yet. Getting to play with dancers in the studio, that sharing and collaboration, is what drives me. These days, I take in about $1,500 a month as artistic director of Arena, but I still supplement it by working as a server at Wise Acre Eatery and cleaning the building where I live. I feel lucky to be in a place where I make most of my living doing what I love. The journey hasn’t been easy, but nothing could have swayed me, and I’m not slowing down yet. Arena’s next production, The Main Street Project, which focuses on how technology is changing the way people interact, will premiere this spring at the College of St. Benedict.
 

Mostly for Money: $

Anonymous

There’s nothing objectionable about making more money than you’re used to, and my previous job came with a salary that was by far the most I’d ever brought in. But employers want to get what they pay for, and it came with massive amounts of pressure, stress, and the expectation that I was available around the clock, seven days a week, on top of often spending 50-plus hours on the job. Pretty soon you’re spending just to compensate for how miserable you are, and that’s a ridiculous downward spiral.

I had financial obligations related to family life and really came to believe that everything would fall apart if I lost this job that I increasingly hated. That’s an awful and unique feeling—the definition of golden handcuffs. Eventually it all became too much, and I felt I was shouldering burdens in the organization that no one could solve, no matter how much money they made or how seriously they took it all. I left and found another job more in line with my philosophies and talents and, although it entailed accepting a very significant pay cut and a fair amount of reordering my financial life, I’m now happier, calmer, and more balanced than I could possibly have dreamed of being before. Money is great. It’s also not worth being miserable for.
 

Financial Habits: How We Budget, Spend, & Save

Manager of Retail Store in Uptown

30s, single

Salary: $31,000 per year
Housing (rent/mortgage): $820 rent/month
Food budget and where you shop: about $200 a month for groceries; primarily shopping at Rainbow but occasionally Lunds for something specific
Loan payments: $100/month
Credit-card bill: $50/month
Savings and where it’s stashed (IRA, investments): “Ha. Right. I had nothing for savings. By the end of last year, what savings I had was gone, and I had stopped contributing to any retirement, trying to keep up with bills and any unexpected expenses, like a car repair.”
Health-insurance payment: “At the beginning of 2013, about $180 per month (yes, that’s ridiculous for one person). By the end of the year I had cancelled my insurance because I just couldn’t afford it and was uninsured.”
Most expensive meal you ate at a restaurant last month: $30
One thing you would never scrimp on: food
An indulgence you do not feel guilty about: planning a vacation (which never happened due to lack of money)

Or give cash to those I feel are in need—it could be a friend in Minnesota or a family member who’s struggling to make ends meet. On average, it’s possible that I spend $1,500 annually on what I feel is charity.”
In what ways, if any, did you cut back during the recession? Are you still cutting back? “I was in college then. I lived simply: less driving, less eating out, didn’t contribute to my family.”
Baseline salary you would need to feel comfortable: “They say the more you get, the more you want. But I’d say about $100,000 to live a comfortable life.”

In what ways, if any, did you cut back during the recession? Are you still cutting back? “My mother taught me how to save money from day one, so generally I am not a big spender. However, after living on my own for a year, I realized how much money I spend on utilities and electricity. So, I cut back on my electric bill. I unplug things after I use them. Even my TV and radio are unplugged unless I am using them. I take shorter showers and try to conserve water. I also stopped buying shoes.”
Baseline salary you would need to feel comfortable: “I would like to make a little more than I make now so that I can save for more things in the future. My rent takes a huge portion of my income, and I would like to see that change. In 2014, I won’t pay as much in rent, but I will have more bills to pay. However, I will have a second income to help manage. My mother always says to ‘live below your means.’ Don’t spend money just because you have it.”
