I am on track to FI/RE in 9 years at age 42. But I am burnt out. Considering stepping away for 6 months to a year to do something cool, but don't want to fuck up fi/re. Help me see the forest through the trees? I've been a delayed gratification kind of person my whole life. Sick of waiting.
I’m realizing I have a lot of fear—mostly related to health stuff and death. Feel like people are getting sick left right and center (not talking about covid). I’ve never had anyone close to me become very sick or die—don’t know what I would do if this happened. I’m also overly concerned about my health and seem to be at the doctor every month to get something checked. Can anyone relate or provide suggestions on how to overcome something like this?
Can you be fired if on medical marijuana if used for medical reasons with prescription if company policy does not specify whether it's not allowed in recreational use only or simply just not allowed?
Can anybody suggest any books or resources to get smart on medical device marketing and/or medical device manufacturing?
Struggling with anxiety...anyone gone to a medical professional for this? Do you just go to a primary care doc first and then get a referral?
In a medical malpractice action, where a Charitable Immunity cap on liability applies to individual defendants as well as the defendant hospital, does the cap apply to each or globally as to the case? (Here, charitable cap for med mal is $100,000, is that for each defendant or total amount for case?)

How much do y’all keep in emergency savings? What does that account for? I am currently at home with zero expenses but want to keep some cash. Does having to pay a big medical fall into this account?
Curious how people budget for unexpected expenses (e.g. property tax, one-off car maintenance, house repair, medical, etc.)? Just from the "discretionary" budget? Wondering how to treat expenses that aren't large enough to be worth pulling from savings but large enough that my discretionary budget would barely cover.
My partner hasn’t been feeling well over the last couple days. Nothing severe, just slight malaise and fatigue. She told me she had contact with someone who was Covid positive but she’s in healthcare so that isn’t anything new. She was prepared. Today she was sent home from work and told to quarantine but has insisted on getting hugs and even coughed on me during one. We’ve been together for a LONG time. This is a pattern for when she gets sick but with possible Covid I expected more precaution
Are there any good ways to make money outside of a typical career job? I’ve tried audit and currently in advisory. The job just makes me depressed, and I’m thinking the accounting space just isn’t for me. My husband works, so I don’t have to worry with medical benefits etc if I quit. We don’t have kids yet so I need something to keep me busy, and I would like to still have an income and make decent money. Any ideas?
Exercise has always helped my depression but I’ve been sick and gotten out of routine. Tips on how to get back into it?
Junior working with ex v5 senior in M&A. He consistently asks me to turn major deliverables at the worst hours, think 10 pm Friday/Sat/Sun night “tonight” or “by tomorrow morning” even when there is no closing date in sight. When I push back he says my behavior is unacceptable. The times when I have been able to actually meet his expectations and give him the deliverable for review, he will get back to me with comments at least a week later. Sick of these false deadlines. Help
Does it make sense to open a HSA if I'm going to leave the country in 3 years and don't fall sick often?
Hi 🐟s, I need to start prepping for case interviews and looking to find case partners to practice with. Anyone interested in partnering up to practice cases together? My burner is FBBurner2018@gmail
Tips for handing a stress interview? Never had one and could have performed better last week. Worried I'll have another coming up.
Looking for advice, opinions. profile: New SM at PwC Canada, specialize in strategy, digital operations, analytics, performance management and finance. Strong performer - have only gotten ratings of 2s and 1s.

How to MBB pitch unsolicited proposals? How do MBB land new clients? Aside from the usual account management approaches Eg onsell/upsell/crosssell
Hi, I have given interview in TCS on 8th Oct. 2021, got mail regarding clearing the interview and submission on document on ibegin portal. Even after 1 week there is no update in ibegin portal, it still shows candidate registered for a JOB. I have mailed the HR but still no response from them. Only 20 days left for LWD. Could some one suggest it's ok to wait for TCS or not since my manager matched the highest offer i am holding.
Would you take an internal promotion without a raise? What about an internal promotion with a small raise $3k > ? Has anyone ever declined an internal promotion or pushed back on raise?
Hello Everyone! Had a discussion yesterday regarding “claw backs” being included in a policy for sponsorship if the new employee leaves before 3 years. It was a declining percentage over a three year period. My POV was that it wasn’t something I’ve ever done and didn’t seem like they were sure of the hire they were making. I get wanting to save costs but at the same time doesn’t feel inclusive or welcoming. Thoughts? Have you done this or seen it work? Thanks!
I thought I was ok with no raise and bonus due to Covid-19 but after two months of around the clock work, internal and client facing, I want my checks.
Thoughts on doing tax for a private equity firm vs big 4? Want to leave pwc but not sure if PE would be a good move, any advice is appreciated
It’s interesting to see a lot of sales people want to learn about OTEs but nobody asks about quotas related to OTEs. Most companies make OTEs look attractive and then demand massive quotas and only 20-30% of people hit goals. I’m curious to learn about marketplace commission rates. What’s your quota target? What’s your commission % paid on every dollar up to 100% ? And what’s offered in accelerators above 100%?
Any books/self help materials for someone who is constantly worrying (and waste a lot of unnecessary time)? E.g. No matter if i pass or fail an interview, there is always something to worry about. The worrying/anxiety multiplies when I proceeded further in the interview stages. Now that I signed the offer and is pending background checks, my anxiety is off the roof as it itches closer to my starting date.
At what age do you stop taking a bath with your child? My 3 year old & I were in the bath together and suddenly he reached out to my chest and said “mumma, your lungs are outside, mine are inside my body” I was so embarrassed! I told him that those were my breasts and that grown ups have slightly different body parts. I normally take a quick shower before him and sit in the tub with him, as that’s our bonding time. I was wearing underpants so thankfully he didn’t notice my non-existant penis
How is KPMG’s cyber security consulting practice? In general and DFW area. Pay, WLB, etc.
Can you recruit into non strategy groups of MBB out of MBA with a higher chance of getting the job? I.e McKinsey implementation or similar?
I also have a JD and have been asked to take on roles/tasks of paralegal/associate. How do I turn that into a raise at my annual review without seeming greedy?
