You’re in business, and you’re making money. Now what???

This discussion will provide an introduction to building wealth with a goal of financial independence, covering the importance of creating a financial plan as the starting point and road map towards this goal. Many people have achieved success in their careers or businesses and have devoted time to excel in that area, but have not devoted time to mastering their own finances.

Topics will include cash flow, retirement savings, income tax planning, and investments.
