Using knowledge gained from Part One, participants will examine how debt and spending-related patterns are behavioral or habitual in nature, and that the process for modifying any negative patterns starts with gaining insight into the factors that form and perpetuate both positive and negative relationships with money. With assistance from the instructor, attendees will analyze an example assets, liabilities and net worth statement and cash flow statement for potential and actual problems using personal finance ratios. Attendees will learn the difference between asset allocation and diversification, the difference between ‘risk’ and volatility and how it applies to investment-related decisions. The session concludes with three fundamental concepts for building net worth within the financial markets.
