Currently making $57.5 as a Tax Associate. (No raises this year). Had a job interview for a Senior Accountant role at a PE firm and they asked for salary expectations... I said $65-$80. Did I set the bar too low?

Depends on where you live. If in a high cost area, yes.

MCOL-LCOL I’d say

I’m at $60 so I think you’re requesting at the right range. But you should’ve gotten a raise. I wouldn’t accept anything less than $70 tbh.

How many years experience as Tax Associate? Anything else significant on resume? CPA license? Those answers would help to probide better input.

In my opinion, I don't think you set the bar too low. It seems reasonable to me.

I fired my largest client today. 🙀 Sometimes it just isn't a good fit. It has to be a fit for not only my client but also for my agency. We're selective about the work we take on because relationships do matter, and strong relationships = better results. Today was liberating. What a breath of fresh air. We are accepting new clients for everything marketing related including graphic design, website design and development, SEO, digital campaigns, product photography, and video production.
