About Personal Financial Planning

Personal financial planning is a series of steps used by an individual to reach an overall financial goal (e.g., financial independence) or set of intermediate goals (new home purchase, pay for college, etc.). This often includes a budget that organizes an individual's cash flow, identifying all sources of income and expenses as well as saving for future expenses.

Financial Planning Process

  1. Identify Goals – What financial goals are you trying to accomplish?
  2. Gather Data – Set budget figures, including asset and liability information.
  3. Analyze Information – Consider alternatives and choices.
  4. Develop Plan – Create action steps and time-frames.
  5. Take Action – Implement your plan step by step.
  6. Review – Analyze your results to keep on track towards your goals.

Michael R. Clancy, MBA, CFP®, CLU, director of financial planning, is available for one-on-one personal financial planning sessions.
