How To Create Your Personal Financial Plan

… without stress, getting stuck, or hiring an expensive financial advisor

What is a personal financial plan?

A simple written plan is a North Star to guide you for the rest of your life
— because you can remember it. Having a plan means:

  • "I'm in the process of creating what is most important to me."
  • "I won't always know where I'm going—but I can always know
    whether I'm going in the right direction."
  • Peace of mind. Confidence that you are on track.
  • You are a more interesting person, because of what you do!.

This course has a project.

Each video lesson has a small assignment. The end result is your personal financial plan with a one-page summary!

People with clear, written goals

accomplish far more, and in a

shorter time, than people without

them can ever imagine.
