exceeded $100,000 for 2010, according to the 2011 Survey of Trends in the
Financial Planning Industry.
series will cover important areas needed to achieve financial independence and
a quality lifestyle, including financial planning, insurance, investments,
taxes, retirement and estate planning, said Business Professor David Schalow of
UW-Stevens Point, who will lead the sessions. “At a time when many careers are in
decline and financial literacy becomes more important, financial planning
skills are in high demand.”

three sessions. The cost for any one session
is $200, including class materials. The entire six-session series is $700.
