FINANCE

The project will consist of 3 sections:

  • Your Top 3 Reasons to Plan financially.
    • Choose your top 3 of Edelman’s “The 12 Reasons to Plan” and describe why these three are most important to you.  Additionally, explain how you will incorporate these three reasons into your personal financial plan.   Incorporate your knowledge of investments and compounding as well as some of Schor’s principles for avoiding consumerism and unnecessary purchases.  500 word minimum.
  • Your Top 3 Obstacles.
    • What do you see as your 3 main obstacles for building wealth?  These are purely personal, although you can refer to Edelman’s obstacles for ideas.  The goal here is your personal introspection as to your likely future hurdles to overcome.  Following up on those obstacles, address them directly in your financial plan, meaning how will you mitigate, or lessen, the potential impact of these obstacles.  500 word minimum.
  • What if?
    • Choose one these three financial difficulties and, using your imagination and creativity, write a narrative on how you would cope with your chosen difficulty.  750 word minimum.
      • Loss of a Spouse/Divorce:  You must construct and describe a realistic plan of action for the financial challenges currently confronting a parent of two, ages 5 and 3, in his/her early 30’s trying to regain or maintain financial independence.  You are not responsible for solving any financial problems, just for identifying the potential problems and offering solutions for coping with these problems both in the short run and long run.
      • Natural Disaster:  You must construct and describe a realistic solution to the financial problems currently confronting your family of three, you, your partner and a 9 year old child, struggling to reconstruct your life after losing everything in a devastating natural disaster such as a flood or wildfire. You are not responsible for solving any financial problems, just for identifying the potential problems and offering solutions for coping with these problems both in the short run and long run.
      • Caring for a Family Member Unexpectedly:  You must construct and describe a realistic and sensible solution to the problems currently confronting your family of three, you, your partner and a 9 year old child.  You are the sole surviving relatives of a family member who is unexpectedly in need of care, both financial and residential, for the next five years.  You are not responsible for solving any financial problems, just for identifying the potential problems and offering solutions for coping with these problems both in the short run and long run.
