Responsible Money Management

6:30 PM - 8:00 PM
Kettering Moraine
Community Room

Developing a spending plan will act as a roadmap to your financial success.  Have you ever wondered where your hard-earned money goes each month?  Most people fail to take action until it is too late.  By being proactive you take control of your situation and set up goals that work toward your financial stability. Personal Financial Planning is an orderly and detailed accounting of your income, savings, living expenses, and credit obligations that will help you manage your money more efficiently.  Without it you have no financial direction, but with a little effort the peace of mind and benefits are numerous.
