Financial Literacy Month just keeps moving forward, and so do we. This week, we’ve chosen to highlight a book whose mission is to guide you through financial planning and everything that’s associated with it: The One-Page Financial Plan by Carl Richards.
“Financial decisions have never been more complex, and yet our ability to make smart financial decisions has never been more important. It’s no surprise that even my most successful friends feel confused or paralyzed. What they don’t realize is that bad calls about money aren’t failures; they’re just what happens when emotional creatures have to make decisions about the future with limited information. What I tell them is that we need to scrap striving for perfection and instead commit to a process of guessing and making adjustments when things go off track. The most important thing is getting clarity about the big picture so you can cope with the unexpected. But no matter what happens, this book will help you bridge the gap between where you are now and where you want to go.” (Amazon)
This read is sure to be beneficial for readers from every walk of life, whether this is a newly-retired couple in their sixties or a twenty-something just stumbling into the world. We hope this helps you in your financial journey, and we hope you’ll check in for our next installment of Financial Literacy Fridays.
