our practice is having a face to face meeting tomorrow however no one knows I am expecting (13 weeks). I was not planning on sharing, however very last min they scheduled a lunch and happy hour outside of the office.
The partner has been my mentor for about 6 years (male) however I haven’t been very close to him as of the last year or so.
I am so torn because although I didn’t want to share I may have to just with him because I am not vaccinated. Lunch with others and no mask is a no go

If you were inheriting 50k and had 0 debt as a 23 year old, how would you invest/allocate that.
(Already maxed my Roth for the year)
I fought all week last week for raises for a few employees who are amazing, important and underpaid. One of these people is actually a team lead. They are training others who are coming in and earning $4k more a year than she currently earns and she’s been with our company for about 2 years!!! I find this extremely unfair. The owners of the company believe these employees should speak up if they want a raise. I think it’s our responsibility to pay our employees fairly. Please leave suggestions🙏
