My CD is on maternity leave and there’s going to be a shoot in her hometown. This will be the first time I meet some of my team members after a year of working with them (very excited). But I’d lovee to meet my CD, she’s one of the best mentors I’ve had. Even got her some gifts before she had the baby. Is it weird to offer up the chance to meet her in person while she’s on maternity leave? I totally get if she can’t. But figured I’d try? What do you think?

Due to my stupidity + an expired CD from grandparents, I have over 140k in savings in a MCOL city. No debt. Maxed out roth IRA. Plan to max out roth 401k again. My new employer doesn't have an HSA. My situation will change very soon: - 30% higher salary - Rent payments (lived w/parents up to now) - Payments for ring + tiny wedding - Future spouse is recruiting but currently unemployed (I'll pay her insurance) Savings are way too much but unsure what's next. Any tax advantaged accounts left?

The opportunity: A CD opening at an amazing agency in Europe (I’m American). The dilemma: I’m 8 weeks pregnant. The visa process is time consuming and expensive and I will likely go on maternity leave shortly after arriving. Do I tell them? Or just see how it goes and then spring it on them? File under: Things men never have to think about.

Anyone have money management advice? I have a lot saved (no loans, got brother's old car, big CD from family that ends in a few months). I'm putting quite a bit into 401k with the remainder sent to a money market (supposedly high yield) account. It's an awesome problem to have, but I feel like I'm sitting on this money, doing nothing. I have no knowledge of stocks, but getting another CD seems wasteful. Only big purchase planned is an eventual new car, which I can easily buy.

Advice desperately needed. I've been at my agency for 6 years and I have a one year old child. Work is going well since I returned 6 months ago after maternity leave, my boss likes me, has given me more responsibility and praises my work but he's basically told me I won't be promoted because the 2 CD slots above me are both filled. Staying would be comfortable and easy with the little one especially but I feel I'm never going to grow and progress if I don't move up so I feel I have no choice but to look elsewhere. What would you do?

I prefer this because I won’t be able to deposit my sign on bonus into the 401k as I max it out every year.
