SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 24, 2018 / -- Successfully planning personal finances is often more complicated than people assume.

The way we budget, save and spend our money is typically seen as a largely personal affair, not discussed outside of family units, if at all.

Often, however, we fail to take into account wider financial risks and potential future life events.

Rosanne Hanley has experienced this first hand with friends and family falling into difficulty because of unexpected, unanticipated circumstances.

Hanley has always taken a keen personal interest in finance and now aims to help others in the Sarasota area by organizing a community personal finance class.

She's no stranger to organizing events either, having previously arranged a local volleyball tournament and a series of community fitness classes.

In somewhat of a change of pace, Hanley now plans to aid locals further by helping them get a better grip on their finances.

"Personal finance isn't taught in schools," says Hanley. "It's something which people are left to their own devices to learn about and properly understand."

According to the Federal Reserve's latest figures, the average American household now carries over $135,000 in debt.

This puts total U.S. household debt at close to $13 trillion, up more than $500 billion from a year ago.

It's an almost unfathomable amount, but Hanley aims to do something about it, starting on a local, community level.

"I want people to say, 'Rosanne Hanley helped me get my finances in order!' - that would make me incredibly happy," she says.

Having previously helped Sarasota residents get physically fit, her sights are now squarely fixed on getting them financially fit, too.

"Understanding banking products, private equity, and insurance, as it pertains to our personal finances, is a lot to get your head around," Hanley says.

"When you consider checking accounts, savings accounts, credit cards and consumer loans, plus stock market investments, bonds, and mutual funds... it's a potential minefield."

She continues, "Life insurance, health insurance, and disability insurance too. How many people are adequately equipped with these products or services?"

The upcoming class will also cover social security benefits, retirement plans, and management of income tax.

"It may appear daunting, getting to grips with your personal finances, but the class is aimed at everyone," says Hanley. "You can go at your own pace, and notes will be provided. I promise, everyone will leave with a better understanding of personal finances than they came in with."
