Let's table this discussion so we can do a deep dive analysis on the due diligence performed on the work product to identify all low hanging fruit which is most impactful leadership and then circle back/touch base with the project team who has the bandwidth to implement changes which will take the work product to the next level in order to provide the most value-add and move the needle.

“High level”

YES. During my first month in finance, I thought this meant “advanced.” Like if you got to a high level in a video game or something.

Maybe staying at home this long has made me more critical, but I’m struggling to maintain any suspension of disbelief with ads and tv shows. Case in point: the MB ad where the kid snuggles the dirty, grime & bug ridden toy off the front of a truck - seriously!? And don’t get me started on ‘Your Honor’ - WTF, do they not have fingerprinting in the NOPD???!! Case closed.

How do you deal with non-accepting family members? I don’t make it a thing, but I’ve been advised to take off my tie and change into more feminine clothing around them. I am okay with not discussing my personal life, but I don’t feel comfortable changing my dress. So I just don’t keep in contact with those relatives. A therapist told me that I am not secure in my gender identity if I am not willing to take off a tie and show compassion to a family member who would be upset by it? Am I selfish?

Just sharing this here for fun because I’ve seen some posts about how much cars cost in the US. Here in Singapore, you pay up to ~US$60K to just own the rights to buy and own a car for 10 years (the cost of your average car is another US$40K+)!!

Currently mid twenties, and trying to take financing more seriously and would really appreciate some insight on how to allocate my income into savings! Make about roughly 70k a year (post-tax, no pre-tax contributions). I spent about $3,350 a month (~40k a year on rent, car loan, bills etc), so I have about roughly 30k to save annually. Obviously putting 6k into roth ira, and I need help with insight on how to allocate he remaining 24k between Roth 401k, emergency fund, personal saving, etc.
