Financial Management for Families – Introduction



0. Financial Management – Course Overview and Learning


Developing a better understanding of financial planning is an important

first step in mastering personal finances.

Financial planning is not just about investing-much more than that

is involved. Personal finance encompasses many areas besides investing,

such as spending, taxes, savings, insurance, and planning for major

goals like education, purchasing a home, and retirement.

And, because money should never be an end in itself, but part of your

whole life, this course helps connect your financial concerns and goals

to the rest of your life.

This course is designed to increase your knowledge of the financial

planning process and to help you get on the way to implementing your

own plan.
