Lunch and Learns

For Organizations

The average American loses seven of every eight dollars of market return over their investing lifetime, driven by factors including irrational investor behavior leading to poor decision making (e.g. trying to time the market), fees, and the need for cash.1

At a Lunch & Learn, a One Day In July Advisor will talk to your employees and help them understand how this is happening, including how the financial industry often depletes their hard-earned savings with high fees. At your request, we can address other financial topics as well.

We pay for and bring the lunch and we are respectful of your organization's time. This is not a product sales session, though often people sign up with our firm later, on their own time.

Research shows that better financial management reduces employee stress and increases happiness and work focus.

You do not need to have a 401k plan; these sessions are for individual employee education.

"I was extremely pleased how simple and effortless it was to host a Lunch and Learn with One Day In July. It was extremely easy to organize this informative hour because they made it very convenient for us as they took care of everything. The only job I had was to invite all of the employees to this very informative Lunch and Learn.

It was nice to see the large amount of employees who attended this presentation. Our employees took away a lot of valuable information which will help them make better investment decisions. I really like the outline of the presentation and it was very organized, which helped us understand it better.

I have to say that I truly appreciate the advisor making the presentation about sharing valuable knowledge and not about selling their services to us."
