Literally anything. Busy season makes me question my career choice. Every year, without fail

Why do you say that? I mean I don’t need much encouragement to get to that point hahah

Busy season is pretty short in the big scheme of things- the weather where l live makes it a good career choice as I work a lot when it’s cold and snowy; when it’s over Spring is here. I can take time off and enjoy summer and the holidays. I thought of changing careers but I know that I can take time off when I want too is a plus.

Hi Fishes,

My wife is getting transferred to California from India and she is offered 143k.

How much she can get after tax deduction and all? How much she can save after all the expenses?

She is insisting that I travel with her and get the job in the US. I'm a software developer having 4.1 YOE. How much can I get in the US? Is it worth traveling with her?

Any information would be helpful, Thanks in advance...

My partner of 5 years ended our relationship last night. I’m shattered and feel absolutely sick, and I know the healing isn’t going to be easy. We were on the verge of an engagement and I was ready to spend the rest of my life with him.

I don’t know how to approach work during this time. I think I can get by, but I’m definitely not 100%. Should I talk to my boss about it? My team is close-knit and comfortable around each other, but I don’t know if it’s “appropriate.” What would you do?

My wife and I are working on preparing a good down payment for a home in a couple of years. Right now I have been maxing out 401k and Roth IRA, but considering to reduce those contributions in order to build up for a down payment. Currently own a townhome, and this approach would allow me to rent out my current place instead of using the equity for a partial down payment. Is sacrificing the retirement accounts for a couple of years worth it? I think so, but would like to hear other ideas.
