September 30th marked the end of the third financial quarter of the year, and the end of another purchase period for my company's stock plan.
I wasted no time initiating the sale of stock over the weekend. Once the transaction is complete, I will use the money to open an E*Trade money market account which will be the primary account I access on my trip.
As Mike at Vagabondish recently noted, it offers an extra layer of security (in the form of an RSA token) perfect for those of us on the road using public computers for our online banking.
Unlike the last quarter, I just barely met my savings goal over the past 3 months. You can see the details on my ‘Round the World Trip Plan.
To celebrate, I went out for a massage. I also convinced myself this would be therapeutic for my ailing knees!
