 First – A Perspective
“It is a gloomy moment in history.
Never has the future seemed so
dark and incalculable. The United
States is beset with racial,
industrial and commercial chaos,
drifting we know not where. Of our
troubles, no one can see the end.”
            Harper’s Magazine, 1847

the Choices We Make!
    Opportunity cost
      What you give up by making a choice
         The opportunity cost is sometimes referred to as
          the trade-off of a decision.
         It cannot always be measured in dollars.
          Sometimes the cost is your time or your health.
         Consider the lost opportunities that will invariably
          result from your decisions.

    But since none of us has much, if any, control over these matters,
    we will focus on the things that we can and do have control over.

Components of Financial Planning
     Planning (chapters 1, 2)
     Taxes (chapter 3)
     Saving (chapter 4)
     Borrowing (chapter 5)
     Spending (chapters 6, 7)
     Managing risk (chapters 8, 9, 10)
     Investing (chapters 11, 12, 13)
     Retirement and estate planning (chapter 14)

Developing Personal Financial Goals
   Types of financial goals include those...
     Influenced by the time frame in which you want to
      achieve your goals
     Influenced by the financial need that drives your
   Timing of goals must be identified
     Short-term, intermediate-term and long-term goals
   Financial goals should...
       Be realistic, be stated in specific, measurable
        terms, have a time frame, have a priority, and
        indicate the action or actions to be taken

Timing of Financial Goals

   Short-term – up to 1 year “or so”
   Intermediate-term – 2 to 5 years
   Long-term – more than 5 years

    The above are the book’s time frames. Here are mine:
     Short-term – 1 to 3 years
     Intermediate-term – 3 to 5, 6 or even 7 years
     Long-term – 7 years or longer (10 to 30 years)

Financial Goal: Example
    Pay off VISA
      Balance: $3,500
      Time frame: Within 12 months
      Actions to be taken
         Reduce dating and clubbing to twice a month
         Cancel cable service and mobile phone
         Stop buying coffee at FiveBuck$
         Pay extra $300 per month
      Priority: High
                      Which time frame does this belong to?
              How would you measure the success of the goal?
                                    Is the goal reasonable?

Financial Goal: Example
    Save up for a Home Theater system
      Amount needed: $2,000
      Time frame: Within 12 months
      Actions to be taken
         Take part-time job at Home Cheapo
         Put $150 per month into a special savings
          account at the bank
      Priority: Medium

Financial Goal: Example
    Save for down payment on a condo
      Amount needed: $15,000
      Time frame: 5 years
      Actions to be taken
         Set up $200 automatic investment per month to
          be taken from our checking account
         Expected rate of return: 7%
      Priority: High

      Will $200 per month at 7% be enough to reach this goal?
      We are going to learn how to calculate the future value of
                                    this stream of investments.

Non-Financial Goal: Example
    Be able to do 15 “good” push-ups
      Can currently only do 7 “good” push-ups
      Time frame: Within 3 months
      Actions to be taken
         Start with 7 push-ups, three times a day
         Increase by 2 or 3 push-ups every three to four
         Work up to 15 push-ups within 3 months
      Priority: Medium

                                     Is this goal reasonable?

Goal Setting
      Which of the following goals would be
      the easiest to implement and measure
      its accomplishment?
 A.   Spend less so we can save more each month
 B.   Save $10,000 for a down payment on a condo
 C.   Save $100 each month to create a $4,000
      emergency fund in 40 months by canceling the
      cable service
 D.   Save enough for a $4,000 vacation next year
                                The correct answer is (C).

The Financial Goal of Most Americans

    Spend everything
      that you earn!
         And then spend some more!
    Most Americans Live Beyond Their Means
    “Honey, Can We Make It to the Next Paycheck?”
          Discussion: How do we do it? Why do we do it?

The Most Important Financial Goal!

   Spend less
 than you earn!
        “Live Beneath Your Means”

         “Pay Yourself First” – 10%?

       “MAKE L VE, NOT LOAN$!”

The Most Important Financial Goal!

    Pay Yourself First
      By having the money come out of your
       paycheck or checking account automatically,
       most individuals easily adjust to investing
      Works like a pay raise, only in reverse
    The 10% Solution
      Many financial planners recommend saving at
       least 10% of your income for long-term,
       compounded growth
      The Wealthy Barber, David Chilton

                               Is 10% a reasonable goal?

The Most Important Financial Goal!

“The magic of compound interest. Thirty dollars a month, a
dollar a day, can magically turn into over a million dollars.
And do you know what is even more impressive? You know
someone who has done it,” Roy, our barber, said proudly.
“Thirty-five years ago, I started my savings with thirty dollars
a month, approximately 10% of my earnings. I have
achieved just under 13% return per year. In addition, as my
income rose, my savings rose accordingly. Thirty dollars a
month became sixty dollars, then a hundred, and eventually
hundreds of dollars a month.”
“You three are looking at a very wealthy man.”
                           The Wealthy Barber, David Chilton

The Most Important Financial Goal!

“One of my early students only followed the ‘Pay Yourself
10% First’ lesson. He bought the wrong life insurance,
abused credit cards, overpaid for his mortgage, did not take
advantage of his 401(k) at work, and lost all $15,000 of an
inheritance playing the commodities market.”
“This is a real upbeat, encouraging story, Roy,” said Tom.
“Today, his net worth is $850,000, Tom. $300,000 of it is
the equity in his house but the rest is his 10% savings.”
“He did everything else wrong but –” Cathy started.
“Because he had saved 10% of each paycheck and invested
it for long-term, compounded growth, today he is in great
shape,” Roy finished.

The Rule of 72
   A Quick ‘n’ Dirty Method for Calculating
    Compound Interest (or Inflation)
     Divide the interest (or inflation) rate into 72
     That is approximately how long it will take the
      amount to double
     Example: 10% Interest Rate
        72 / 10 = 7.2 years – It will take about 7 years
         for your investment to double if you earn 10%
     Example: 3% Consumer Price Index (inflation)
        72 / 3 = 24 years – It will take about 24 years for
         prices to double if inflation runs about 3%
                                 But let us get more precise…

Simple versus Compound Interest
  Simple Interest
    Interest = Principal * Rate * Time
    Interest = $100 * 6% * 1 year = $6.00
    In one year you have $106 ($100 + $6.00)

  Compound Interest
    But the next year, you will earn interest on your
    $106 x 6% x 1 = $6.36
    After the next year, you will have $112.36

         I know what you are thinking, “Big Deal, Paiano!”

   Time Value of Money
 Increases in an amount of money as a
 result of interest earned

Amount                            Future
 Now                              Value

Present                           Amount
 Value                             Later

      Future Value of Money
   The amount to which a sum you invest now
    will increase based on a specified interest
    rate and time period
     Future value is also called compounding
     Future value can be computed for a single
      amount – a.k.a. a lump sum or principal
     Future value can also be determined for a series
      of deposits – a.k.a. stream of investments, “annuity”

                   Start investing now to take advantage of the
                                         future value of money.

    Future Value of Money

   Future value formula for Lump Sum Principal

    Future Value = Principal * (1 + Rate)Time

   Future value formula for Series of Deposits
                                 (1+Rate)Time - 1
     Future Value = Deposit * ──────────
                    Do not worry about the math. We use
                        the future value of money tables.

     Present Value of Money
   The current value for a future amount
    based on a certain interest rate and a
    certain time period
     Present value is also called discounting
     Present value of a single lump sum
     Present value of a series of withdrawals

              Not only is present value harder to comprehend,
               it is also not as important for personal finance.
                  (We use present value very much in the BUS-
                        123, Introduction to Investments, class.)

     Present Value of Money

   Present value formula for Lump Sum
                               Lump Sum
        Present Value = ───────────
                          (1 + Rate)Time

   Present value formula for Series of Withdrawals
                                1- ───────
    Present Value = Deposit * ───────────
                   Please do not drop the class. We are not
                 going to do any present value calculations.

But What Is Your Career Goal?
   Most people believe you must become a
    doctor or lawyer or high-powered executive
    to become wealthy
     But what if you want to be a writer or a teacher
      or an artist or a janitor or mechanic or plumber?
   Can you become wealthy while doing what
    you love...
     Even if it does not command a large salary?
   As we saw, the answer is, “Yes!”
         The key is to set a goal for yourself & start investing early.
 In fact, your career is not your most important financial decision.
   But if your career is not your most important decision, what is?

 “They are ambitious, they are demanding and they question
 everything, so if there is not a good reason for that long
 commute or late night, do not expect them to do it. When it
 comes to loyalty, the companies they work for are last on their
 list – behind their families, their friends, their communities,
 their co-workers and, of course, themselves.
 But there are a whole lot of them. And as the baby-boomers
 begin to retire, triggering a … worker shortage, businesses are
 realizing that they may have no choice but to accommodate
 these curious Gen Y creatures. Especially because if they do
 not, the creatures will simply go home to their parents, who in
 all likelihood will welcome them back.”

Could not have said it better myself…
