October is all about finances, both as Credit Awareness month and Financial Planning month. Having a written financial plan in place that includes the following is the best way to make your dreams, whatever they may be, come true.

  1. A financial plan is a comprehensive statement of your long-term objectives for security and well-being, with a saving and investing strategy for achieving those objectives.
  • Determine Net Worth
  • Know Cash Flow
  • Set Priorities


  1. Net Worth is the total value of your assets minus the total value of your liabilities.
  • Assets-cash and items you could sell for cash
  • Liabilities-debts, loans, mortgage


  1. Cash Flow is a way of tracking all of your income and expenses on a monthly basis.
  • Positive Cash Flow-extra money to use as you please
  • Negative Cash Flow-time to trim expenses or get a second job!


  1. Set your priorities and use a budget to manage your money and adjust your cash flow accordingly.
  • Pay off debt
  • Save for a home
  • Set-up emergency fund and retirement accounts


If your dream includes home ownership, be sure to talk to a lender as you put together your financial plan.
