"From Stress to Strategy, Financial Planning During Challenging Times" Joshua Dukart
Effective financial planning and analysis does not start with crunching numbers and running scenarios. Profitable decisions actually begin with a vision to establish direction and creative thinking about how we are going to get there. Incredibly, finances, resource management, and quality family life are not independent of each other. Instead, they are wound tightly together and can actually feed value into each other generating profit in the short term and wealth in the long term.
