One of the most stressful elements of career change is money. How long will my money last, will I be able to replicate my current earnings in a new job, and what financial decisions do I need to make now? This program will help you learn to live within the financial resources you have and will help you to answer the following questions you may be worrying about:

  • How can I stretch my budget?
  • What about my benefits?
  • My 401k – take it or leave it?
  • How do I survive a volatile market?
  • How does this hiccup affect my retirement plans?Mar Sue Durrbeck
