Where are these houses and how much revenue will they generate ?

Current rental house I am saving 300 per month after all expenses in very good neighborhood so appreciation is great. But I am not able to find similar house so if even I buy second investment home I might not get any monthly income out of it but I don’t need money for next year 10 years or plus so I am not worried for short term gains as it’s difficult in Austin given current market situation

Maybe do some more research on investment properties before you make your decisions. You need to understand how to analyze your property to understand if it's a bad/good/great deal. If you're not making any profit on it, it's most likely a horrendous deal. I can't speak to the $300/mo without know all the details (purchase price, interest rate, taxes, cash down, neighborhood, etc) I've been doing a lot of research my self. I've started so far with biggerpockets.com and talked with my realtor who also buys rental properties. The analysis is key, key, key.

It’s not only like that in Austin lol

I would find a house to possibly flip or purchase a rental.

Someone recently joked that I’m his “work wife.” This really bothered me. I don’t think of our relationship as romantic at all. This is mostly just a rant, but can we please retire this term?

This year I am in the 24% tax bracket. I currently max a Roth 401k (and other tax-advantaged accounts), and receive a 6% traditional 401k match from employer. Next year I will be in the 32% bracket and will be switching to a traditional 401k to maximize tax deductions, as I plan to retire in the 24% bracket. Should I try to convert the pool of employer match in my 401k from traditional to Roth this year while I'm in the 24% bracket? I have the cash to cover the tax.

Took a paycut (10%) as I was promised more impactful work but role has felt like a major step back in scope/responsibilities from what I’m used to. WLB has slightly improved. Am I playing victim/need to get my mental health checked out?

Feel like my mental stamina sucks - at least compared to what I hear other people say about their work weeks. I start to become non-functional after about 50 hours of work/week, and I can't keep working on the same material longer than 4-5 hours at a time in the same day. Is there a way to get better at this? Is it because of the work I'm doing or my way of working? Do I just suck? FWIW I never miss deadlines, work is always high quality and I'm more productive than most of my team mates.
