What’s one hobby you’d want to pursue if you had more time? I’ll start: I want to take vocal lessons to become a better singer
Got a verbal offer from a large wealth management firm for $120k with $10k annual bonus (don’t know details about signing bonus yet) in a HCOL city, I’m currently in a MCOL city at $96k. Is it a good idea to take the $24k raise but jump to a more expensive city in a state with much higher taxes or should I stay and hold out for the next opportunity?
I own a domain name - just my initials plus a word, that I use for a small side gig/hobby. I was approached by a company that manufactures industrial equipment that just happens to be named exactly what my domain is - they asked if I’d be willing to sell it to them. But other than that, it’s a nothing special name. What would be a reasonable price to ask. Tbh I couldn’t care less about the domain and it gets almost zero traffic. What would you ask reasonably for $$
At what point does the value of a degree fall off? I'm in my early 30s, and have five years of experience, and work on a very theoretically interesting project. I believe I'm on track to promotion in the next year. So, I could put in a year of full time school to check the box off, but I'd be sacrificing hobbies and social life (not to mention cost). Is this FOMO or is there real opportunity here?
Big picture question: How did you settle on a FIRE number? Originally I did the simple "estimated annual living expenses divided by 4% rule", but am now second guessing that for many reasons. For example, if I want to live on 70,000 per year, I'll need 1.75MM... but what if 70,000 in 20 years won't be a ton of money? Also, what about saving up for kid's college funds? How to account for the possibility of tax law changes? So many questions!
Looking at transitioning from strategy/accounts to client side sales. Anyone from Google wanna help a lady out with a referral?
New grad here! Do you recommend enrolling in FSA? I like the idea but worried that there may be complications involved with the process of using FSA for reimbursement. What are your experiences with it, and anything troublesome that I should be aware of? Could I change the amount any time like the commuter program or is it more based upon new hire/qualifying event?
How do I get in contact with a headhunter? Or at least get on their radar. I’m at a boutique firm in Upstate New York with 2.5 years experience including litigation, medical depositions, appellate briefs and a pending brief before the Court of Appeals.

What type of exits are possible out of Finance Transformation consulting? I’m a recent grad and am really doubting my decision to start out in consulting. Not at MBB or Big4 but from a top 20 school
I recently read an article that talked about paying expenses like mortgage using a credit card (buy pre-paid Visa cards and then play using that) and is a way to get points and improve history. Has anyone tried this? If so, what is your experience?
Came across the concept of “cash envelope stuffing” on youtube. Seems like a pretty good concept to avoid overspending on each category of expenses. I am trying to get some ideas to incorporate this concept using multiple bank accounts/ cards. Where I allocate a set budgeted amount of money each month, to each bank account tagged for a specific category (groceries, vacation, emergency fund, etc). Is this something you have tried or have any ideas on how to go about it? Do you recommend this?
