Whichever one gives you the lowest rate. Money is a commodity so no sense paying more to get it from lender A vs lender B.

I had a good experience with Trident Home Loans recently but you should definitely shop around to multiple banks and credit unions and/or go through a broker

Try Boris Cherner from Capital Bank. He is in MD area.

Hey there!

So that’s the first time I am in a role where I am trusted to chose platforms and services to use, and I am overwhelmed!
I work for a B2B company, and am searching for a platform where I can monitor seo, and manage social media primarily.
I’m obviously looking at hubspot but what other platforms (combined of individual) do you like most?


Friday afternoon vent: we hired an in-house litigation attorney two months ago. I was expecting to have to teach him the company/industry. Instead he needs in depth computer training.

Examples of things he has needed my help with:

1. Saving a word doc as a pdf
2. Bookmarking a webpage
3. Creating a new folder in his documents folder
4. Printing emails to pdf for exhibit use
5. He refuses to even download Adobe
6. And has barely even tried to learn the main program we use for tracking stuff.


Do you listen to music or podcasts while you work? Or do you prefer silence?


I finally ended up getting a philodendron and a snake plant. But idk what next. Do I like clean them/quarantine or like repot? I would appreciate it if you could direct me as to what to do or throw some words that I could google and learn about. 🙈 TIA!

Edit: one of them came in a growers pot.

Not worse. Just…soft


I'm sorry if this is out of place, but is anyone interested in coming on my veteran podcast? I work for a Nonprofit Organization that provides supportive services to veterans in CA, NV and AZ and our podcast discusses issues relevant to veterans. I'm organically searching for veterans who are willing to talk about their experiences, mental health and healthcare, employment, case management, housing for the homeless, etc. We don't require you to be an expert on anything.

Hey fellow veteran consultant 🐠 (particularly those with life science or health care experience). My company is actively hiring consultants at all levels, and I’d love to increase the veteran representation. If you’re looking for great WLB, top of market comp and solid, transparent leadership, DM me.
Also, remote is OK, you don’t need to be near our hub offices.

Real talk: I have no idea how to socialize. I've been out for a little over two years. My old friends are still around, but have their own lives and things going on. We see each other when we can, but I'd love an actual group of people to hang with after work or on the weekends. How do you find your new circle?

Do any of you pipe hitters know if your tsp contribution turns off automatically if you hit the $19,500 annual limit. Context: I have a buddy about to deploy and he’s worried that if he ramps up contributions to 100% he will over contribute.


Can someone explain using VA healthcare while having private insurance? I have a non service connected condition I need checked out but my private primary dr can’t see me for like 2 months.

What will I be responsible for costs? How does it work with my private insurance? My deductible which I haven’t hit yet? PwC has terrible super high deductible insurance if it matters. I’m also 90% service connected any priority group 1.


Question for the Reservists in here: if I’m traveling for BA/drill and try to book a hotel room on my own, can I use the “government/military” rate for Marriott? What do I need to show for that? Would I still earn Marriott points/nights for that stay? Thanks!


PwC'ers. How much am I looking at for healthcare for myself, my wife, and toddler?

I start in a week, haven't seen figures yet.

Can anyone share how to go about requesting a review/"upgrade" of my VA disability benefits? I have been at 20% for almost 10 years now, but with the presumptive condition changes regarding burn pits I feel that it's pretty likely that I'm due more for my sinus / lung issues.

I tried contacting every advocate I could find in my state (CA) from the VFW website for assistance, but literally nobody had responded and it's been months!
