Episode #9 – An American working in London

Marianna Wood Armitstead will be my guest on Monday 5/17 to discuss what it’s like being an American looking for and working in London. Marianna is my lovely sister-in-law, hence the same last name, but I wanted to have her on the show because her experience is unique to what most Americans experience working in the States.

A little about Marianna: Marianna has a BA in theatre and a Master of Arts in Teaching in Secondary Education to teach theatre from the University of Utah where she was a candidate for valedictorian.

Quote of the show:

Episode #8 – Managing your finances while unemployed

Monday, May 10th show on the topic of Managing your finances while unemployed with guest Gary Gygi. Tune in Monday May 10th at 11am PT | 12 noon MT | 2pm ET to www.blogtalkradio.com/jobclubradio and learn more about the tools and resources available to deal with your finances while out of work.

Gary Gygi  has lived in Utah for most of his life and worked in the financial services arena for more than 21 years.  You may have heard him on KSL news radio and TV for many years being interviewed about business and market topics. 21 years managing money, 15 years with Morgan Stanley as financial advisor and branch manager, left in 2003 as First VP of Investments. Currently registered rep with WBB Securities and President of Gygi Capital Management, a Utah Registered Investment Advisory Firm  specializing in retirement planning including setting up, managing and dismantling retirement plan programs like 401ks.  Mr. Gygi  is an investment advisor experienced  in risk management and portfolio optimization.  He understands how to invest in all market conditions, not just those that go up.  He believes in minimizing losses by measuring risk as loss of principal and not simply as a “downside” to investing in the market.  He utilizes all tools and strategies available to carefully allocate investment portfolios in order to take advantage of all economic and market conditions that may arise in any given market cycle.  Perhaps most importantly, unlike most brokers who are just salesman who can sometimes adequately help grow one’s investment accounts during their lifetime, but are completely at a loss as to how to distribute the assets during one’s retirement, Gary specializes in doing just that, helping people grow their nest eggs and then appropriately help distribute it correctly.
