planning

Daunted by the idea of financial planning?  Regardless of your age, experience, or income, it can be easy to be scared by the idea of financial planning.  It sounds so hard!

That's why I like this excellent article by B. Simple at Simplified Financial Lifestyle, where B compares financial planning to planning for a trip. B breaks it down to 4 steps:  figuring out where you want to go (the goal), figuring out how you're going to get there (the plan), planning how much money you'll need (the numbers), and asking for help when you need it (the professionals.)  I'm amazed at how easy B makes the process!
