DIY a Financial Plan

What is a financial plan? And do you need one?

Julie & Catherine are going to walk you through the 3 steps to building your own financial plan. You can make it as complicated as you want, or you can keep it to one page.

To us, the plan is a like road trip across Europe. We may not have a fixed destination, but we have lots of things we want to see along the way.

  1. What is important to you
  2. Start to shape your goals
  3. Plug in the numbers

Along the way we’ve made up some golden rules. The 1st one is that the plan is not about perfection. Don’t get hung up on precise details.
Rule number 2 is remember this is about guessing, so it will not turn out exactly as you planned at the beginning. And that’s ok, because most of us change as we go through life. 
Rule number 3, money is not your only commodity. You have time and talent!

4.23 Rule 3 explained
7.49 what is a financial plan
