See Some Other Financial Network Maps

Email  Print Print  

When I first drew up our financial network map, then subsequently wrote about and did a video about financial network maps, I had no idea it would become a popular idea.

These maps are valuable for two reasons. First, they give you a good snapshot of your finances. Second, it forces you to understand and, if you’re married, discuss your finances. Communication is the key to success in any relationship, be it a marriage or a friendship, and financial communication is often very touchy because it deals with money. However, the best things in life are hard right? 🙂

If you haven’t made a financial network map yet and aren’t really sure how, watch the video and read the post. Aftwards, check out some of these maps for ideas. Each one does it a little differently and you can pick and choose which aspects of each you want to use for yourself:

If you drew up a financial network map and I missed it, let me know!

    Long time reader, first time commenter! I think you’re doing the Lord’s work, clearing the economic cataracts from the eyes of the masses. Should’ve warned them more about the lousiness of callable bonds though!

    I read all your posts from my reader; keep up the good work!

    Thanks for linking my article, Jim!

    Had a couple people ask how I made my maps. I used software called XMind. There is a free version available at It is a java application that is cross platform for Windows, Mac and Linux.
