Developing a Financial Plan

Posted by Orrin Woodward on June 19, 2015

“The only man who sticks closer to you in adversity than a friend is a creditor.”

It’s impossible to consistently win in any endeavor without a plan. Unfortunately, most people in life do not have a financial plan; therefore, they struggle financially. The Financial Fitness Program is a step-by-step plan to help someone develop a plan for defense, offense, and understanding the playing field (The Financial Matrix) of financial success.

Why start at zero and have to spend years learning the principles of financial success when a person can invest $99 dollars and have access, not only to a winning financial plan (thousands have eliminated their credit card debt), but also the LIFE Leadership community to help one stay accountable to his/her goals and dreams? Life is tough inside the Financial Matrix. That is why a supportive community of people with the same objective – to escape the Financial Matrix – is so vital.

Here is a segment of a talk I gave in Wisconsin on the importance of having a plan, working the plan, and persisting in the plan until victory.

    Hi Orrin!

    Great talk!, and better topic! Escaping the Financial matrix and no longer being enslaved is a feeling we need to all experience and hold each other accountable too.
    Life Leadership is truly a force for good!

    God bless.

    I’ve gone through many other financial management programs with lackluster results. It wasn’t until I understood the foundations that the Financial Fitness Program explains, that I begin to change my financial habits. Thank you Orrin and the Life Leadsrship Community!!!

    Got the plan after meeting with mentor, accountant, controller and lawyer. Confront and inspect! Great teaching.

  8. Thank you Orrin. Great way of teaching by using a great story of Bill Wash Dream, Strugle, and Victory in reminding us the key message about the escaping of the financial matrix.

    Thank you for the Financial Matrix! The Matrix shows all that we no longer have to live in a “Market for Lemons” where the playing field is assumed to be information asymmetric. With the Matrix all have the ability to create market clearing prices on their fields and start over fresh and debt free!

    Great post and talk. Thank you for making the topic so easy to understand. Can wait to be out of the matrix. With this information and consistency and the support, I cannot fail.

    Good morning, Orrin,
    We, too, have gone through some other plans. They were very good as far as they went. But, they were only defensive and did not cover the playing field either. Since using the teachings of the FINANCIAL FITTNESS PROGRAM, we have eliminated $40k in debt and are now saving 10%. We are about to wipe out one more card. Thank you for explaining the financial MATRIX. Like Neo, I knew something was wrong, but I had no idea what.

    We are getting out of the financial matrix. It’s scary how much others fight to stay in it!

    Thanks for sharing your wisdom. Its incredible that when we learn more.. we see how much we dont know.. but I feel like our leaders in LIFE know it all! Yet they are constantly seeking more wisdom and mentorship to never seem like a “know it all”. Thanks for leading the way and being a follower of your own teaching!

      I can’t remember who said it but the more you learn, the more you learn how little you really know. 🙂 Every day I study for 6 to 8 hours (I replaced my job with independent study) and at the end of the day, I feel I have more to do than when I started. Slowly, however, the picture is emerging of what is going on in our world and what I can do to make a difference. This blog is just the platform to share. 🙂 God Bless, Orrin
