Are there benefits to staying at a consulting firm for more than a year if the exit opportunities offer more? Analytics consultant here, looking to be earning about 90k next year. I think I could make 120k in industry, but I could probably exit closer to 160 in about 5 years. Am I foolish for thinking it’d be better to stay given the learning opportunities?

Staying is overrated

No it’s just that the opportunities won’t improve much as you wait. As long as you keep hopping every so often you’ll get a market adjustment

Where do you think you could make 120? I’m at 2 YOE and all the exits I’ve interviewed for have been in the 85-100 range so far. Unless you’re in SF... that’s a different story

I have technical analytics skills and project experience which could definitely put me above 100k

New to investing, but want to make sure I'm doing this correctly. I've maxed out my 401K and am looking to open an IRA. I know everyone recommends backdooring this into a Roth IRA, but if my plan is to move/retire to a state with no state income tax, wouldn't traditional make more sense? Or am I overthinking this? Also, if I go the backdoor route, how do I make sure I don't get taxed again, when i convert to a Roth? Thanks in advance!

How are folks thinking about permanent life insurance? 45, making let’s say for example (not my exact numbers): $1M per year, not yet vested in pension. Was thinking need to replace the post tax take home, about $550k NPV’ed at 5% to age 55, so that’s like $3.2M. Maybe pension is worth $2.5M so I think that means I should have $5.7 total you want death to have no financial impact. Also was going to do $1M of that in perm w/ LTC rider. Sound right?
