Been holding VXUS in my Roth IRA for months now and hasn’t been performing at all. Should I just cash out and put into my VTI position?

Do you think VTI will perform better going forward? I have no idea. Months is an awfully short time to base that decision on. It has actually been underperforming for years. Before that it overperformed VTI for years.

I just sold a large share of my US equity allocation to go international 😂 Sell high and buy low - at least that’s what I’m trying for.

I had Wellington in Roth for some years, a really solid fund but decided sell and buy the total stock index. I want to capture those high returns. It doesn’t hurt to have some international but then again VTI already has some international exposure. I try to keep it simple.

Should you stay in a position that has very limited promotion opportunities because of its org structure? We have a relatively small team of various bands of staff level who report to a Director who has no intentions of adding additional mgt layers (understandably). There is apparently growth opportunities on a IC track, but those don’t seem to be granted as often as management promotions. If I want to grow into a more strategic role overall, what other options should I look into/discuss?

Considering a mini pivot from growth/performance marketing to a product marketing role and hoping for a gut check from those who have done both. I'm trying to move away from the transactional culture of growth marketing, which feels like a numbers game. I'm also intrigued by product management and user research, but not ready to invest in that bigger leap, so product marketing seems like a half-step to get more exposure to those teams. Am I on the right track here? Any advice on the transition?
