    • Author Keith Fevurly is an accomplished writer, educator, and financial planner.
    • This is an updated and retitled version of Fevurly's self-published book, PADD Your Wealth, which was recently cited as among the "Best of 2012" independent books in Business and Finance by Kirkus Indie Reviewers.
    • Although other books have been published on the financial planning process, many of those books are extraordinarily outdated (most pubbed in mid-2000s) and do not take into account recent financial concerns, such as the Fiscal Cliff, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010, and current tax rates.
    • Provides readers with an easy-to-follow framework for protecting their assets, accumulating monetary wealth, defending their wealth, and distributing this wealth throughout their lifetime for the benefit of themselves and their family.
    • Excellent resource for the thousands of consumers of all income levels that would like to begin taking the necessary steps to protect and grow their net worth by embarking on the process of personal financial planning.

Implementing a financial plan to manage the future is very important. If you have not assembled such a plan, or even if you have not thought about how best to manage your financial future, the time to do so is now, and the resource you need to walk you through every step of the personal financial planning process is Plan Your Financial Future. Regardless of whether you are a recent college graduate or have spent the past several decades in the working world, Plan Your Financial Future will give you the smart, commonsense advice you need to get your financial life in order.

Written by an expert and long-standing educator in the field of personal financial planning, Plan Your Financial Future is a comprehensive, objective, and pertinent guidebook for readers of all income levels who want to grow their net worth on a steady and increasing basis. Covering all the financial bases you can reasonably expect to confront in your lifetime, like insurance, investing, income tax planning, Social Security, Medicare, and more, this vital resource begins with techniques to protect a consumer's personal and business assets. It then transitions into the wealth accumulation process and outlines tax management measures, as well as the distribution of wealth for higher education, retirement, and estate planning purposes. 

Filled with in-depth insight and invaluable financial planning advice, this unique guide explains how to: 

  • Insure yourself, your family, and your property against the possibility of significant loss;
  • Invest in financial or real assets—or both;
  • Practice effective tax planning and management techniques;
  • Distribute your estate at death to your intended beneficiaries in a tax-efficient manner;
  • And much more.

With its no-nonsense, straightforward style and holistic view of the financial planning process, Plan Your Financial Future is the one resource you need to become a more knowledgeable saver and translate those savings into the accumulation of future wealth.
