Memo: Financial Goals and Personal Spending Plan

Note: I don’t need to search an article, I just need to create a spending plan using the excell sheet that the instrcutor attached below and create a one page writing.

 

Memo: Financial Goals and Personal Spending Plan

Overview: Develop financial goals (use Smart Goals or specify objectives) and a workable monthly spending plan (budget) for the next twelve months (Start Dec 2019). Use the Spending Plan Excel Worksheet
(on Canvas) and update it for your numbers and spending accounts. Then you will write a one page memo discussing the key issues in your plan. Identify your core goals and clear objectives that you expect to reach with this plan. Discuss the important areas of focus that can cause success or failure. Identify what you (and your family) will need to do in order to meet this spending plan.

Outcomes: Student will develop a customized and personal financial plan through analysis, goal setting, and planning.

Tasks:

Develop some personal/family financial goals and objectives (or SMART goals–Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant, Time bound) for the next 12 months.
Use the spreadsheet template to develop a personal/family spending plan.
After developing a workable spending plan that enables you to meet your goals: Write a one page memorandum and discuss the Goals and Outcomes of your spending plan. Discuss why they are important to you.
Identify the Key Factors that can/will have the biggest impact on your plan. For example: identify behaviors and actions that may derail or obstruct your plan to reach your objectives.
Consider how you should prioritize your spending. Identify the specific issues and action steps on which you will need to focus to meet your objectives.
Be sure to use a private Code Key in the spreadsheet spending plan so that you maintain your financial privacy in the course. You must also submit the assignment spending plan in PDF format.
