Urbana, IL 

The Product Manufactory (TPM) is a product design and R&D firm composed of highly skilled engineers, designers, coders, and fabricators. The products they've developed have ranged from research instrumentation to consumer electronics to railroad power supplies. 

TPM was founded in 2012 by U of I grads and has grown to occupy 15,000 square feet of space in Urbana where they design and prototype client products. They also have a sister company, The Product Greenhouse, which has 30+ years of experience as a trading company. This relationship, along with TPM's own network of US and overseas contract manufacturers, allows them to take a product all the way from idea to production. Learn more at https://www.theproductmanufactory.com/. 

Fun facts about the company: 

- Even though it's not a condition of employment, 70% of all employees and interns ride, and wrench on, motorcycles. There have been three custom motorcycle paint jobs done after hours at their shop. 
- They have a cookout every year for their clients and vendors in town. Marc, their lead fabricator, smokes a couple pork shoulders for it; they think they rival the pulled pork from a certain locally beloved barbecue establishment.

Presented by: Mar Sue Durrbeck, RFC, Financial Consultant

How long will my money last, will I be able to replicate my current earnings in a new job, and what financial decisions do I need to make now? This program will provide a framework for understanding financial management and resources to explore for additional assistance.  Some of your questions may be:

How can I stretch my budget?

What about my benefits?

My 401k – take it or leave it?

How do I survive a volatile market?

How does this hiccup affect my retirement plans?

Who can I call for additional support?
