JW’s Financial Coaching Podcast-How money is finite, how July 2011 is unique, and are employee stock purchase programs worth it?

On today’s podcast we discuss a variety of subjects. First we discuss how our money is finite and that by saying “Yes” to certain things we are also saying “No” to other things that we might want to do. When making a big financial decision we need to take into account what we’re saying “No” to as well as what we are saying “Yes” to.

Next, the month of July is a pretty unique month. Not only do we have a holiday on the 4th, we also have 5 Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays for a full 5 weekend month! What does this mean to you and your budget? Potentially a lot of things, but you need to be changing your budget monthly regardless because every month is a new month. To help with budgeting please visit our free financial resources page to download budget spreadsheets.

Finally, many publicly traded companies offer employee stock purchase programs to encourage ownership of company stock. We discuss in depth the pros and cons of the programs and give recommendations on whether or not you should participate in them.
