Walking inside the beautiful Eddie Lane’s Diamond Showroom in Montgomery feels special. It feels so special that you associate it with the holidays, which is completely true.

Women Who Mean (nonprofit) Business

Working at a nonprofit isn’t for the faint of heart. The hours are long, the pay isn’t as good as you’ll find in the for-profit world, and the mission can become all-consuming. As a result, staff burnout and turnover are usually high.

You may have heard the old saying, “There is strength in numbers.” This is typically used when talking about how it is physically safer to be with a group than to be on your own. The saying also can be applied to the safety of your financial situation. In our practice we have seen great wealth created through investment in a single stock or privately-owned business. However, the same market forces that create wealth also reduce wealth. So, what’s the difference between a person that maintains the wealth once it has been earned and a person who doesn’t?

Primary Solutions for Managing Concentrated Stock Positions

In today’s world, it’s not unusual for an individual’s or family's wealth to be the result of one or two concentrated stocks having done particularly well throughout a lifetime. Executives and lifelong employees typically amass these sizeable positions via employee compensation (restricted stock, stock options, etc.), employee stock purchase plans, and IPOs. Additionally, family members of these individuals may have been gifted stock over the years, or may have inherited stock upon the death of parents, grandparents or other relatives. Despite these positions providing individuals and families with the aforementioned prosperity, concentrated positions also carry with them tremendous risks, some of which can deflate a portfolio in little or no time (think Enron or Lehman Brothers).

Open Enrollment & the Women's Soccer World Cup

The recent U.S. Women’s Soccer World Cup was certainly a moment that the players and the fans will never forget. Often, the passion of a fan can take over and they will celebrate a goal with just as much gusto as a player. While football (i.e. soccer) fans and players are not employed by the same company, if they were, they would be grouped together for purposes of life and disability insurance. This would hardly seem fair to the athletes, and yet that is what happens to some employees when it comes to their employee benefits.
