This lesson is titled, ‘Relating With Money’. This is absolutely critical, as we believe that personal finance is 80% behavior and 20% math. Just knowing the numbers isn’t enough to win!
The homework assigned for week three is:
- Read Chapters 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 in Financial Peace Revisited (it came in the kit with your materials, no need to purchase again).
- Finish off and start living by the zero-based budgets you have been creating over the last week or so. It is very common for your budget to be off for the first three months or so, don’t worry if your assumptions were off or you get an unexpected bill. Budgeting is an an iterative process and one that will become easier over time, I promise.
- Fill out the 1st column of the Financial Snapshot form. A copy came in your materials, or you can do it at the FPU Member Resource Center. If you do it online, you are entered in a drawing to win an iPod.
- Start tracking the information for the FPU Progress Check.
Lastly, we have some additional reading on this subject, if you are interested.
