“Emergency Money Management”

Sorry, listening to the audio on this website requires Flash support in your browser. You can try playing the MP3 file directly by clicking here.

A cou­ple of weeks ago, I was fea­tured on an EMS pod­cast.  Before all my fel­low law enforcers get wrapped around the axle about cavort­ing with the “other side”, let me remind you of two things:

1. Despite what you like to bitch about around the PD, we are, in fact, more alike than you’d like to admit.

2. My best friend is a freak­ing Para­medic Cap­tain.  How have you not been pay­ing attention?

At any rate, Scott Kier (@medicSBK) and Sean Eddy (@medicmadness) were kind enough to bring me into their realm to talk about some­thing near and dear to my heart: Per­sonal Finance and First Responders.

Sean is actu­ally one of my first clients at GPS Finan­cial Coach­ing.  His story is absolutely inspir­ing and will hit close to home if you’ve ever had an inkling of trep­i­da­tion with regard to your finances. The progress he has made in the last twelve months is incred­i­ble and he has made me extremely proud.

Take a listen!
