The College of Business presents
the Financial Literacy Series with Alumna Debrah Farnell ’12: 

On the Road to Financial Independence –
How to move forward and get ahead by financially planning!

Wednesday, September 25, 2013
3 – 4 p.m. – UMW Faculty, Staff and General Public
5 – 6 p.m. – UMW Students
Lee Hall, Room 412
Contact: Andrea Cordray, or 540-654-1242

We get all kinds of advice from the experts – friends, coworkers, television shows or books we buy and mean to read! Still we can find ourselves not sure of where we are, where to start or how to assess where we want to be. We may know that having a plan is important, but don’t know how to take the first step.

This seminar is geared specifically toward those who are looking to take charge of their finances and work toward financial independence. Money is uniquely personal and every plan is too. There is no “one size fits all” in financial planning. Your circumstances, your lifestyle and your vision for your financial future all come together to help you create your plan.

We will:

  •  Learn what financial success looks like
  • Learn how to take charge of your finances and limit exposure through financial planning
  • Create an inventory and personal financial statement to assess your financial status
