Is zika still a concern in Mexico and the Caribbean? Anyone travel there with a pregnant significant other recently?
Signs that the economy has fully recovered and is going full steam. About a year ago people would have given their first child for a role of toilet paper, today, they just throw it on the streets.
ClearView Healthcare Partners anyone willing to provide a referral? Applying for an entry level consultant position (PhD). Happy to chat about my credentials, resume etc.
The post earlier today about a sick baby and a bad manager hasn't left my mind. Tonight, I found the article linked in the comments. Fellow mamas, don't let this be you. This hit me hard.
I’m in my mid-40s with a 7 year old and baby. Is it too late for me to back into public accounting? I was laid off last year and found a great job in a large bank. I miss the flexibility, challenge and rigor of PA. I would love your opinions. Has the ship sailed for me in PA? If I go back I would be an experienced senior; maybe, a year or so from manager.
Anyone heard of Equitable Financial? They’re trying to pitch some life insurance investment vehicle for tax benefits. Sounds like BS but want to hear from other
Vaguely interested in the concept of a facial, but I’m sure I’d never make it a regular thing. Is it worth doing if it’s something you’d likely only do like once or twice a year? E.g., are there still benefits if that infrequent?
I got two offers in hand, one from google and other one is from Goldman Sachs, pay is nearly equal, im confused what should i opt and what are the benefits of both.
Good news and bad news: We are expecting our first child in the next 2mo. Sadly, we’ve also just lost a close family member. As a result, we’ve come into a little money and would like to put maybe $10-15K aside to start a college savings for baby. Does anyone have experience with this? What’s the best way to go about it? I’m not hugely familiar with this, but want to make sure I understand the fees and taxes that may be affiliated with different options. Would be grateful for any insight!
My husband wants to name our son after his brother who he loves a lot .i am so pissed that he yelled at me when I am 6 months pregnant and unable to do anything , will be the one going through labor just to have my son my BILs name as first name , my husbands name as middle name and last name of his family. FYI- me and BIL live in different countries and I have spoken to him handful of times over phone and that’s it . He doesn’t want to discuss any other names anymore.
I feel trapped. We work hard, break glass ceilings, put in all the blood, sweat and tears needed to "make it". Usually twice as fast, with a babe on a hip - cooking, running a call. I'm over 50, solo and a parent & over the rat race. I've been putting out feelers and feeling the over 50 burn. I don't need to lead the world - a small piece would be nice, ok money. Fun people, easy roll, smart work, build smart people - cool teams. I get "you'll be bored here - we can't afford you". What2do?

Any advice on which states 529 to choose? I live in Georgia but do most of my investments in vanguard, whose 529 is via Nevada. Seems like GA may have some addl tax benefits?
Just got a big raise (50%+) starting July 1st that is going to move me out of income limits for direct Roth IRA contributions (prior to raise was under the limit) even with maxed pretax 401k and HSA - however I am already halfway through contributions ($3000). What options do I have to address these excess contributions?
As a first generation college graduate, first one to land a job in Corp. America, there’s so much that I wasn’t prepared for like 401k, investing, along with other things that increase your TC that aren’t bonuses or your base salary or how to diversify your income. I’m 25 and I feel like there is SO much I still don’t know. Any good book recommendations/youtubers/podcasts that helps navigate this?
Anyone with later miscarriage experience willing to chat? Just lost our baby at 15 weeks, from our only embryo after a brutal IVF journey. Struggling to see any path forward right now.
Anyone decide not to BF right out the gate? Please no judgement I have made no decision yet. Halfway through pregnancy and already tired of sharing my body, and husband and I want to share feeding duty equally (ie not with me pumping / being attached to baby). I realize there are significant benefits to BF which I wouldn’t take lightly in the decision just hoped to hear from anyone else who opted out from the start.
FTM here and my baby will start daycare soon. Daycare asked us to prepare all the bottles on a daily basis. Between all the bottles and my pumping parts, it sounds like an absolute nightmare in terms of cleaning. Is there an easier way to do this besides running the dishwasher daily?
What is the the exit comp range for a Senior Consultant / Manager (post MBA)? More curious about the high end. My guess is ~150 - 300k total comp.

Despite our covid numbers going up, my district is starting in-person learning. I teach first grade and am scheduled to go back Dec 8th. We are using a "concurrent" model where we will be teaching both in person and online students simultaneously. Mondays will be planning days. Is anyone else doing this? What advice do you have to do this successfully without being totally exhausted?

Wasted 2 years and good health working at Deloitte, never getting strategy work. Now I'm too burned out to do MBB and will never be able to break into strategy. Fml 😤

Has anyone ever used their Amex card to pay for something personal that's $200+? If we pay it back then it shouldn't be a big deal right??? Asking for a friend....
Is it safe to hide the fact that I was part of a group layoff and say instead that I chose to leave? Can recruiters find out the truth from my former employer and hurt my chances?
