Never been pegged before. Hear it's a wild time - if that's what you're in to. Let us know how it goes OP! Good luck!

SM1, slow and steady wins the race. Hear it takes a while to get it all the way in, let alone a pounding.

Keep at it! You'll get there soon!

This spiraled quickly. Great work to the urban dictionary generation.

Hit, dinged, bonked, called out, flagged, hemmed up, got a talking to, busted, put on blast, got in trouble, caught.

Any of those words/ phrases could have avoided the pegging you're currently getting right now.

Use mobile key for checkin and they won’t require any proof of ID :)

I was doing the hiring interview for an experienced hire last week, in our technology consulting practice. I discussed the career level, specialty group, type of work, etc. The candidate then said that they would only accept the offer if it allowed them to work from home, indefinitely. Have others encountered such a request? BTW, no offer was extended. I couldn’t commit to “indefinite WFH”, when clients often require us on-site and with out-of-town travel.

Curious for people’s thoughts on where I should be focused:

30yo, all figures combined for 2ppl:

-$325k household income

-$150k student debt (mix of mba and undergrad)
-$30k misc debt (car, credit card, personal loans)

-$35k in 401k savings
-$2.5k in HSA savings
-$1.5k investment account
-$8k cash savings

Didn’t do so strongly in our 20s (worked at nonprofits, spent outside our means), but want to spend our 30s getting financially secure. Where should we start? Pay down debt? Start saving?
