In two or three paragraphs, describe where you would “like to be” financially in 10 years.  Include things like your career preparation/opportunities, housing, transportation and (generic) family situation.  (The purpose is to have you give this issue thought, not to pry.)

After describing what you’d like, assess your probability of getting there?  Do you see any major barriers, or are you already on the right track?  Other than pursuing higher education (which, by the way, tends to be a very wise investment over the years), what changes/initiatives or steps do you intend to take in order to help make your plans a reality?

  1. The length of your response is conditional on the question. Answer fully, but concisely.
  2. Your submissions should be submitted via the assignment dropbox in .doc or .docx format, using 12 pt type and double spacing.
  3. Late submissions will not be accepted, absent documented circumstances that made submission impossible.

You’ve read about bonds, and should understand that they are basically agreements where you loan your money to a company (or other entity) who pays interest while it uses your money, then repays the principal.
