What is the value of doing this assignment? We all have financial goals—buying or renting a home, purchasing a car, paying off a loan, or saving up
for a vacation. And it can be challenging to figure out exactly how to save toward these goals, given the numerous expenses of daily living. A financial
plan helps you identify how you can reach your short-term and long-term goals, and leverage planning and organization strategies to make
meaningful, incremental progress toward realizing these goals. This assignment gives you the opportunity to apply what you’ve learned about
personal financial planning, productivity strategies, and the use of Excel to develop a personal financial plan aligned to your financial goals.
