The Modernize Wealth Guide to Family Financial Planning
Helping Families Create a Financial Blueprint to Experience Their Money Differently
Do I Really Need a Financial Plan?
If you haven’t created a budget, taken a personal finance class or worked with an advisor, you might think that you don’t need one. You might think that planning is only for the uber-rich. Or you might think that you don’t want to plan because it only makes you sacrifice today for some distant tomorrow.
Or maybe you think you don’t need a plan because you’ve seen plenty of people go through life without any sort of plan and they seem to be doing just fine. The thing is, if statistics are any indication, most of the people who seem like they’re doing fine really aren’t. They’re doing OK but aren’t prepared for the unexpected things that can happen at any time.
You need a financial plan because it helps you to live the life that you want today and in the future. It protects you from the unexpected and puts you in control.
How Do I Create A Financial Plan?
That’s the million dollar question! We created this financial planning guide to walk you through the financial planning process we use. It will help you create your personal financial plan (we call it a Financial Blueprint) and provide worksheets, assessments and tools to help you along the way.
What is a Financial Plan?
Think of it like building a home. Unless you’re given the opportunity to tell the architect or builder about your vision for it, it won’t feel like a home at all. A good financial plan creates a solid foundation.
