Does Accenture offer in-service withdrawals if I want to contribute after-tax to 401k and rollover to Roth IRA? Or should I just contribute to taxable brokerage after maxing 401K & Roth IRA?

Has anyone ever set up LLCs to purchase and manage certain assets? I would love to understand why you did so and how you went about it.

Finally figured out my plan... 1. Save 3-4 years worth of expenses. 2. "Retire" early. 3. Become a FIRE public speaker.

Age 25 and just got a windfall of $40k. I’d like to invest it all (likely index funds). Should I invest it all at once or spread it out over time (dollar cost averaging)?

potentially dumb question - should i save my down payment $ in a HYSA or invest? 5 year timeline... would any gains be cancelled out in withdrawal taxes, making HYSA the safer bet?

What are the gotchas for doing a mega backdoor Roth? We got a tax bill last year not knowing that a backdoor Roth can’t be done b/c we have rollover IRA from previous 401ks.
