After great success with Wow! Is Me, a marketing consultancy firm, and ChickLit Media Group, an independent publishing company, award-winning film producer Adryenn Ashley launched Crowded Reality last December. She strategically integrated social currency into her latest business model–and it paid off.

To keep your business sustainable, here are Ashley’s four finance tips for home-based entrepreneurs:

Tip No. 1: Focus on making money quickly.

Focus on ideas that don’t need much startup capital and are immediately profitable. For Wow! Is Me, ChickLit Media Group, and Crowded Reality, Ashley covered her startup costs with preorders.

Tip No. 2: Set up a frugal home office.

A common mistake from first-time entrepreneurs is to set up a fancy office at home. “I didn’t need half of what I bought,” confides Ashley. Instead, put every penny toward delivering your product or service.

Tip No. 3: Deduct housing expenses the right way.

“A lot of people who work from home use TurboTax to do their taxes, and it only gives you one or two ways to deduct your house,” warns Ashley. Instead, she suggests using the square footage of your home office space as a percentage of your total home square footage to allocate deductible expenses.

Tip No. 4: Leave no business deduction behind.

Beyond her home expenses, Ashley uses working vacations and office space reserved at her local country club for client meetings as business deductions. “Just make sure that you have an accountant who knows how to do it,” says Ashley.

Ashley created a platform that allows for a deeper, authentic connection between show producers and show supporters.  While most television shows build a loyal following after an episode or two, programs funded through Crowded Reality have a large and personally invested fan base before the show premieres.  Ashley’s first show, Wake Up, went from idea to on-the-air in 4 months after Crowded Reality went live.

Marin native Adryenn Ashley, now living in Reno, Nevada, has launched CrowdedReality.com, the first crowdfunding platform for reality television and talk shows.

The site uses a proprietary back-end matching system to pair shows that have promise with potential sponsors based on the demographics of the actual backers of the show. The website was named one of the best start-ups in 2014 by Social Media Monthly.

Since I opened my plus size lingerie boutique in Oct. 2012, I have been contacted several times by various parties to create a Curvy Girl Lingerie T.V. Show. Several networks and casting directors have reached out to us to create a Curvy Girl Lingerie show for them. And, we even created a sizzle reel for two of them. We were pitched to some really BIG LABEL networks which I will NOT name here. But, we never got funded or picked up. [Read full story…]
