Trying to figure out which is better (long term) to do between the following options
1.) Max out Traditional 401k + do backdoor Roth versus 2.) Contributing to and maxing out Roth 401k (if employer plan allows)… not sure if from a tax and long term growth perspective, one of these options makes more sense to do (or is there another option to consider for maximizing retirement contributions ?)

My partner left the industry during the pandemic and I’ve been lost since. We worked together our entire careers, and I feel like since he left I haven’t come up with a single good idea or really cared about any projects. I know I wasn’t the reason he left, but I have imposter syndrome now. Did he carry us as a team? Am I good enough to do this without him? Do I care enough to do this on my own? How do you deal with losing a long-term partner who was half of your work life for years?

Might have a potential opportunity to switch over to my dream job but currently in the midst of pre-production for a shoot that will happen at the end of September (I’m now an AD btw). Should I try to inform my potential new gig that I won’t be available till mid-October or just be available and have my team/agency figure it out and give my 2 weeks? I still want to own the work on this shoot but don’t want to miss out on a great opportunity.

Presented work today and was informed at the start of the call that account and strategy would be holding their feedback and instead would discuss amongst themselves and share it in a consolidated way after the call. On one hand it’s nice to get clear, consolidated feedback. On the other hand, felt like creative was iced out of the conversation and didn’t get a chance to defend our work or respond to the feedback...

Thoughts? Which would you prefer? Did we get one pulled over us?

My was mom grumbling while working on a flier for her non-profit job. I asked if she was ok. She angrily told me her boss had went into the file, redone her entire concept, and added more words. So I told her what I tell myself, “There’s always another way to say something.” I also said that my bosses change my work, too. She quickly replied, “Yea, but they don’t change everything!” I laughed and showed her my screen. My ECD was in the middle of deleting all the words I just wrote on a slide.
