National Black MBA – Memphis – 2015 Kickoff Meeting: How Fit is Your Plan for 2015?

2015 Kickoff Meeting

“Reaching Your Financial Goals: How Fit is Your Plan?”

A new year is under way and the majority of us aspire to reach goals that may not have been reached in years past. What determines whether we reach those goals or not, often is predicated on how we take those first steps and what plan one may choose to implement. If you have life goals, such as a worry-free retirement, education for your children at the best schools and colleges, buying a house or a car, then building a financial plan can help you achieve these goals.

Your financial plan will work towards achieving goals such as planning for your retirement, child’s education, marriage, buying a house, debt management and insurance.

Financial planning may not expedite the financial status you seek immediately but it can be of invaluable significance by providing insight on evaluating your risk appetite, determining what is achievable and what looks difficult, mapping your current and future cash flows to your financial goals, addressing the adequacy of your insurance, and being better positioned to make recommendations for your portfolio.

If you have concerns or just simply welcome gaining a few nuggets of knowledge on how to make your financial plan fit for your goals, we cordially invite members and guests to attend!

Among the profiles of emerging archetypes he has identified are “thrivals,” a new breed of forward-thinking, globally tuned African Americans who bring a “no-limits” approach to doing business. Advertisers and other media use Irvin’s findings to identify new demographic groups and target them with customized messages and opportunities.
