Taking Charge of Financial Planning Process
Finding good investments, minimizing taxes, beating inflation, and managing money are at the top of many people’s lists. Still, even if you recognize how important financial planning is, you may be waylaid by financial paralysis, unsure of where to begin, or even fearful of making mistakes. Pulling together an entire financial plan can be daunting. Maybe you’ve created a plan that you’re having difficulty following or fear isn’t comprehensive enough. Or you may be confused about what steps to take first.
Here are sequence of steps for taking charge of the financial planning process.
These are the steps:
• Step 1: Determine where you are financially.

• Step 4: Keep simple records.
• Step 5: Make an informal budget.
• Step 6: Deal with shortfalls, credit, and debt.
• Step 7: Review your progress.
