How old are you and what's your 401k contribution? I feel I didn't take it seriously in my 20s and now regretting 10 years later. How does one know you have enough saved up for retirement? TIA!
If you were offered 50% of your compensation and full benefits to take a 6-12 month ‘break’ from your job would you take it? Because that may be coming to you very soon.
Hey fellow 🐠 just wanted to have a place to share without coming off as boastful on social media. I recently was able to pay off my massive student loan debt and car loan as well. I’ve saved 20k in cash (which could last me over a year since I live in low COL city) and have 20k in my 401k. I know it may not be much to other consultants, but I’m only 24 and went through an abusive childhood so I feel incredibly grateful to be where I am today. Thank you for letting me brag on myself!

I’m screwed. 35 yo. Had some medical emergencies in my twenties and wasn’t able to save so only got $10k in 401k. This is assuming $19k max into 401k, retiring @ 67, $5300 monthly retirement income.
Hey 🐠 - I’m early in my pregnancy and interviewing bc I’m afraid of being laid off soon. How can I find out from the firms I interview with whether they have minimum tenure requirements to qualify for paid maternity leave (e.g., need to be at firm 1 year before qualifying)? Obviously, this is the most important benefit for me and I will not be revealing my pregnancy during the interview process. Anyone been through this and have any advice? TIA

Paid off my loans/credit card debt. I barely have any savings. Is the next move to shoot for a 6 month safety fund or to max out my 401k?
Tempted to pull my entire 401k portfolio out of stocks and into cash and safer assets in the short term. I don't trust the market and think it's a bubble waiting for a correction. Is this a bad move?
I’m 25. Not a saver. Never have been. I’m not sure why, but I dislike the idea of locking money away in a 401K. Is saving really that important? Are there non 401K options?
Is it possible to negotiate an offer at all when you’re entry level? Probably not without a competing offer, I’m guessing?
