The heart of personal financial planning is making sure that your values line up with how you spend and save.

Personal financial planning provides major benefits that help marshal and control financial resources more effectively and facilitate an improved standard of living. Because the emphasis in this course is on planning, it examines various areas to set and implement plans aimed at achieving financial goals.
