Have a little over an hour in LAX to clear customs and make my connection. Too bad the brain surgeon driving the jet bridge can't figure it out and I'm stuck on my arriving plane. #unitedsucks
Does anyone have any recommendations on advanced books or other resources to learn about investing ? I’m looking for something much more in depth than what I have already read which usually just explains how to eliminate debt and what dollar cost averaging is. (No debt and already dca)
Best Young Professional organizations in ATL, focused around tangible community engagement/service (preferably via health, education, or financial literacy/support)?
We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?

Having grown up in the lower middle class and not with much money family wise, I always thought one day when I made six figures I would have tons of money coming in, but lately I am discouraged with my “take home pay”. Combined my wife and I make about $275k, we max both our 401k accounts out and after all taxes, and other deductions we take home roughly $150k. Don’t get me wrong this is a great amount. I just always dreamed my take home would be more. Anyone else feel this way? We lose over 40%

Thinking of going to Alaska in July for a week. 1. Is it worth going if on a tight budget? It seems that many of the excursions there are $500+. I'm definitely not looking to spend that much, more in the $50-75 range for an excursion. 2. My wife will be 6 months pregnant. Is there a lot to do considering that (obviously we won't be able to do long hikes etc).

I've been taking the past few months off in order to work on my mental health and learn new technologies that are popular in my industry. How long a gap can I take before it sends warning signs to employers?
Both SO and I are new in our careers, about a year+ in. We don’t make the amount of money that some of you all make (yet) but we’re doing above average compared to our peers just a year out of school. Looking for advice as we start our personal finance and investment journey: pay off consumer debt before maxing out 401k? And where does student debt and/or mortgage fit into the picture? FWIW, both of our parents probably won’t be able to retire anytime soon, so can’t get much advice from family.
