Got one in NY who knows the various states pretty well (we’re in Seattle now). EOY we schedule an appointment, provide necessary paperwork and she works out everything with a 1-2 hour call to go through any questions etc. Also has a lot of contacts for different things like lawyer for wills, tax experts for international $$$, etc.

Looking for advice on how to career pivot. My husband is a general manager for a company that has HQ in a different state so growth opps are limited unless we move. How do I help him pivot into a more corporate job somewhere before it’s too late and he’s pegged as a boots on the ground GM? He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn. Looking for jobs in ATL.

I'm a Cloud Engineer w/ 8 YoE on a company sponsored visa in UK. Trying to switch jobs and so far after 125 applications for the last 3 months - only 3 interview calls which I didn't get. 46 not considered, 49 haven't replied or job listing expired. Awaiting response from 24 and 3 interviews scheduled.

Is this a bad time to switch or is it my profile or skillset? I updated my CV, did all I could to get shortlisted but isn't helping much.

Any tips? I'm losing my confidence day by day :(

My house is paid off and a family friend is willing to pay cash for my house. We agreed on the price and inspections have passed with flying colors.

Can someone help me understand how backdoor Roth works in my situation?

I contribute the $19.5K max to a 401K each year. Would backdoor Roth be (A) the ability to roll $6K of that $19.5K into a Roth? or (B) an incremental $6K that I could contribute to a separate IRA then backdoor into a Roth?

Asked another way, does backdoor Roth allow me to actually contribute $25.5K each year, or does it just allow $6K of my $19.5K contribution to build in a Roth?



Who is thinking about retiring in a low cost of living country? This can dramatically change the math for retirement savings and allow you to work for far fewer years.


My boyfriend and I make 200K combined and live in NJ. We have $1000 in monthly car payments combined. That’s all we owe. Our credit scores are in the 800s. We have 50K to put down on a home. We have done the math and I know we can afford much more but he doesn’t want to buy more than a 400K home. I’m almost positive we can afford 500K and be more than ok. But then he starts to talk about how much kids cost and how we will be house poor and we won’t be able to afford kids. 🤔 Am I insane??


Anyone here have any information on where to invest your money apart from the firm's 401k match? New to investing and wanted to know where do other people invest since most of them wouldn't be investing in stocks directly.

Hello! I'm starting an MBB consulting job this spring and I want to make sure that I spend & save responsibly.

After clearing debt, 6 mo emergency fund, maxing 401k contributions, what's next? Mega backdoor Roth IRAs seem a little overwhelming, maybe something like a HYSA or just a trading account?

Appreciate your help!


M24 TC 80k
No debt
Net worth 130k
~55k mixed between Roth 401k and Roth IRA
~47k personal trading account
~25k in crypto
~1k emergency fund
~3k cash

How am I doing and what can I be doing better? Any recommendations are very much appreciated.
