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!

Change my mind: MBA’s do not have a good ROI if you already make $150+ The only benefits I see are: -2 year sabbatical -Build irreplaceable network (arguably makes it worthwhile but no guarantee)

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.

Hypothetically, if student loans are forgiven, should some benefits be extended to those who paid off their student loans aggressively or chose public over private institutions?

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?

I have $20k in savings, I owe $6,000 to my 401k loan, that’s the only loan I got. I am debt free otherwise except for my house. Should I use my savings to pay off? Since people are talking about unemployment and being fired, I wanted to make sure I have enough, 👩🏾‍💻... What should I do? I initially took the loan to add to my home equity when I sell my house for a new house then covid hit.

Chase Sapphire Preferred vs Amex Green Card ?? SO has chase card so was thinking to add onto her membership but was wondering if I could get the 60000 points while I am added or I need to get new card ?? On the other hand was thinking Amex since our corporate card is Amex and I already have membership rewards to Amex. Both have equally good benefits for mid travel benefits And also I believe Amex will have less annual fee since we have Corporate card. right ?

Have finally saved up enough over the past 4 years of working to be ‘OK’ if I lost my job tomorrow and was out of work for 2 years; i.e I should be able to cover expenses, etc easily without dipping into my 401k at all. This has made it exponentially harder for me to put up with BS, since I always know at the back of my mind I could walk away and be OK. Anyone else ever have this feeling?
