I don’t need a Bic for Her pen to write and I don’t need ETFs for Her to invest.


I’m anti-Ellevest because they charge a pink tax for their services and don’t have a record of out performing betterment or Wealthfront


BBDO, SC1, I don’t agree. If you’re saying women don’t have issues, use cases and needs that standard financial brands aren’t addressing, you’re speaking from a place of privilege.


I’m not saying that, SC2. But this isn’t it. Ellevest markets to women for profit, not a cause, and capitalizes on the use cases you mention to rip women off.

“Ellevest charges a management fee of 50 basis points, or 0.5%; robo-advisors Betterment and Wealthfront, in contrast, charge 25 basis points for comparable products. Some robos, like Charles Schwab Intelligent Portfolios and WiseBanyan, are even more accessible to first-time investors, giving away basic versions of their software for free."


It’s not bad, for sure. The management fees are comparable. I did research and decided on Betterment.

I have to agree. Definitely love investing on my own. I suppose if you’re actually terrified to pick the stuff you invest in or don’t know how to save money monthly like a responsible adult then it might be helpful. I just don’t see the point of the platform

The content is relevant to professional women, there is value in that.

I use Ellevest because it’s really easy to navigate and comprehend. I appreciate the simple interface.

Need Advice on my Resume:

Hello Everyone,

I am a 17 year seasoned outpatient PT in Tampa FL who is the current head PT for my clinic. I do marketing, admin duties as well as staffing. I haven’t gotten a base hourly salary raise in 8 years! (I do get a percentage of profits but due to Covid, haven’t gotten one in 2 yrs). I do not get 401k, con Ed or health insurance benefits.
Current salary is $85K. I am getting very frustrated that this has not increased even after asking. Thoughts? What to do? What do other seasoned FL PTs make?

I’m leaving my agency after two years. I gave my manager six weeks advance notice and he’s upset with me because he feels betrayed. Now every conversation we have is combative. Not sure what to do for the remaining time I have here. I really liked him before this.

This is the first time a client has ever threatened to pull a project with me as account lead 😢

They’ve changed their minds a few times not knowing the technical implications, and now want a deliverable that won’t work.. when we try to explain how the platforms work, they asked me privately if we wanted to drop since it’s out of our expertise.

😢 we will get through it, just a little shook! Anyone ever go through something similar or have words of encouragement?

Also lying about about not breaking, just haven't hit the wall of tears quite yet. Sigh.

I’ve been watching re runs of SATC during the lockdown. I used to like this show but recently have found how dumb and demeaning the dialogues and story line is. Like when Carrie is dating a politician and asks her friends to vote for him “because I’m sleeping with him”. They sound so nagging and so brain dead. Funny how I didn’t think that 20 years ago
