I wish I could take advantage of “not buying my own drinks"


I try not to buy my own drinks. Eat in a lot. Take advantage of firm sponsored foods.


No, but can you tell me how you survive in NYC saving that much? I feel like your rent would be 35k.


What’s the interest rate on your student loan, what’s your current plan for paying that off?


Rent is ~1k


I'd say you're doing pretty well. Keep it up as you progress in your career and avoid lifestyle creep.


Op... I'm assuming you're female? Only way you can potentially avoid buying your own drinks.... what's your secret?


Hadn’t thought much of lowering student loan interest. Looking into that now. Hoping 55% post tax will remain sustainable! I’m currently comfortable and salary will go up with time. Also can’t imagine children for awhile!


20k in student loans. Any general suggestions of how I can do better/wise investments.

Saving 55% pre or post tax?

And what's your income

55% post tax. Half of what I actually take home. Income in low 70s.

@D1 about 7% interest on loans. 200+PwC loan paydowns monthly. Also paying with bonuses and tax refund.

You can definitely refinance that loan, that’s pretty high. I’m at ~5%. Also how do you get 200+ for PwC loan pay down? I’m at 100/month

Seems like you're doing very well! I wonder how sustainable 55% post - tax savings rate is, but do it while you can!

7% is pretty high, definitely should try to get that paid off. Would it more towards it and less into your brokerage account. But definitely very sound investing on your part!

OP what are your high yield savings? Some particular ETFs?

@consultant 3. 4 months expenses (emergency fund) are in high yield savings account (1.35+ APY), not investments. But saw a post on FB about if this is really necessary. Thinking I’ll shift to other easily liquifiable assets/stocks. Suppose I could just sell my stocks if I’m in an emergency.

@PwC 2 that’s correct. I pay 200 in addition to PwC pay down, but I could be paying more if I sacrifice more or save less.

Genuine q not sure if it makes sense: seems like a lot of the older ppl in Congress now got their start in their 20s/30s. Seems unusual for ppl in their 20s/30s to get into Congress now bcos of how hard it can be to run against an incumbent (the old ppl). How did the old ppl do it back then? Did Congress people retire before death more often back then? Die sooner bcos of lower life expectancy?


Saw this in the main bowl. Retirement savings and net worth...how much have you stashed away? 34M Combined with 38F Spouse. $400k in 401k $9k HSA $30k Crypto $31k Trading Account $19k - Kids 529 (2kids under 4yo) $177k - Equity in Rental 1 $185k - Equity in Rental 2 $141k - Equity in Primary Home $20k - Cash (lower that usual due to ongoing home renovations) Net worth - $893k Our goal is staying married and >$5M by 2040.

This will either make me feel sad or okay.... at 25, how much did you have saved? Not including 401k.

Starting a new job. I've got my 401k and Roth money consolidated in Fidelity. Need to make my benefits elections with the new company now. They match 6% but it vests over 5 years.

Anyone else feel poor as heck being in this bowl? Joined knowing I don’t have the biggest salary but hoping for tips and inspo… sitting over here making $75k in high COLA, barely maxing out my Roth IRA and putting 10% in my 401k, while there’s 24 year olds talking about their $500k salary. Oof! Comparison is the thief of joy but wow


I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!

Curious to see if people are willing to say who their worst client was. I wonder if there are any trends. And yes, I know we aren't supposed to give client names but since this is anonymous...


While introducing myself to the client last week, the client's #1 in the room whispers to my partner: "didn't know it was bring your daughter to work day." I'm 23. Any advice on looking older?


Pardon me, I'm perfectly capable of scanning my mobile boarding pass myself. Don't touch my phone 😒


An MD gave me a little more info around the layoffs. 200+ across levels (associate to partner) within FS. Mostly banking.

Like this post if you'd rather be unemployed than work for KPMG


God I forgot how great it is to be on a client site with no security. I feel just as safe and don’t have to deal with scowly rental guards getting in the way.


I contributed money to an traditional IRA but due to my income I am not eligible for any tax deductions. Do I still need to file a form or report something on my taxes. It doesn’t change the refund or anything, but I haven’t gotten any tax forms from E trade for 2021.


Guys, I work in products. Can someone ELI5 what's going on with all these FS layoffs?
