Financial Plan

A financial plan is a
comprehensive overview of
your financial goals and the
steps you need to take to
achieve them.

Budgeting helps you:

• Control your spending

• Meet your financial goals

• Minimize debt, and over
borrowing

• Feel financially organized

• Prepare for emergencies

• Save and give

Why is Budgeting Important?

Income – Expenses = Available
Funds

Available Funds: can be:

* Positive cash flow – money left
over after expenses have been
paid

* Negative cash flow – expenses
exceed cash flow; sometimes
causing individuals to turn to
borrowing and credit card use

for $10, now your account then has $90
remaining

Credit Score vs. Credit Report

(FICO) was founded in
1956 by Bill Fair & Earl
Isaac.

 3 digit number which
determines your credit limit
and eligibility for lending.

history managing and repaying
debt.
