Business expenses keep eating up the earnings of singer-songwriter Erin Austin, aka OK Sweetheart
Erin Austin has toured internationally. Her music has been played on TV shows such as “One Tree Hill” and “Royal Pains.” She has a new EP in the works. But Ms. Austin, who performs as OK Sweetheart, has yet to turn her successes into positive cash flow.
She estimates she grossed $100,000 in 2017. But because she writes most of that off, hardly any income is left over for her. She says she’s even eligible for Medicaid.
