My name is Jamie Chang. I am from Los Angeles and am studying at Hubbard College of Administration International
to earn my Associate of Applied Science degree in Business Management and Administration. I just finished the “Financial Planning” course.
The very first time I heard about “How to Increase Profits through Proper Financial Planning”
(FP) course, the smile immediately disappeared from my face. To be honest, dealing with numbers is really not my thing, and I personally don’t like it especially when you have to add up huge amounts with complicated formulas. I get a headache every time I see them. However, the FP course totally changed my fixed idea, which had existed in my head for several years.
In the beginning of the course, it was a little hard for me since I’ve neither work experience nor any idea about how much or where to allocate money in an organization. Therefore, I had to conceive of examples from my personal finances in order to understand the data fully. Little by little, I grasped the material. Amazingly, FP doesn’t have complicated formulas or hard-to-understand theories. The information turned out to be easily understandable, very A to B (simple and straight forward ideas), and the steps to handle any situation (major departure from an ideal scene) or establish a proper financial system are clearly laid out.
From learning this, I had big wins that I can start applying this RIGHT NOW in my own personal finances: keeping good records of monthly bill paying and doing a monthly account summary (bank reconciliation). These two actions can supply me with the needed information to work out a good plan, so that after covering my basics, I still have enough money to buy pretty clothes, go to the movies and be solvent. Thus, I can keep living my life with lots of laughs.
We all know that the current economic situation isn’t looking good. However, there are ways to solve it. We shouldn’t blame everything on an “economic crisis.” Rather, we should organize and manage our own businesses with the data in the “How to Increase Profits through Proper Financial Planning” course. It will lead us to a higher level of viability, as a function of an expanding and prospering business.
