InvestorTrainer.com, an educational organization dedicated to promoting financial and investment literacy, teaches individuals how to be successful investors and achieve their long-term financial and retirement goals. Our purpose is to inform, educate, and motivate you to achieve your savings and investment goals. We do not sell any investments or financial products.
Taking the time to set goals is one of the most effective methods for achieving our desires and plans. When a goal is vague and not clearly defined, it becomes an item on our wish list and can easily be put off and to be dealt with at a later time. When goals are not clearly defined, it is easier to get off course and pursue activities which may be counter-productive to reaching the goal. Committing our goals to writing moves them from the wish list to the to-do list for action.
Goals should be:
Specific - not broad generalities but specific manageable chunks. Clearly stated. Measurable - so that you will know how you are progressing and when the goal is achieved. Realistic - attainable within our capabilities, yet stretching us to achieve more. Communicated to someone else so that we are challenged and accountable.
Spending & Debt - helps you see your current financial situation. This lesson takes you through the steps for developing a cash flow analysis of your income and spending habits.
Savings and Investments - shows you how to set goals for savings and investments and action-steps for implementation.
Retirement Goals - setting goals for retirement will motivate most of us to implement a specific action-plan to achieve the life-event we all face. Retirement goals can be both financial and life-style in scope.
Setting a retirement date - this is more than waiting to turn 65. An analysis of our finances will help determine a practical retirement date.
