 What is Financial Planning: March 31 | 6:30 – 8:00 pm

The world of personal finance is often filled with jargon and role titles that are frankly less than clear.  For many of us we plan regularly, we plan where we go, what we do, even our list of items to purchase at the grocery store.  However, a financial plan to many can seem daunting or unclear as to what the anticipated outcome may be.  We want you to walk away from this workshop with an understanding of what financial planning is and how it can assist you.
