Hello! I'm starting an MBB consulting job this spring and I want to make sure that I spend & save responsibly.
Here are some questions I have:
What's a reasonable percentage of monthly net income to spend on rent in a HCOL city? Right now it looks it will be 37% but that seems high.
After clearing debt, 6 mo emergency fund, maxing 401k contributions, what's next? Mega backdoor Roth IRAs seem a little overwhelming, maybe something like a HYSA or just a trading account?
Appreciate your help!
Thoughts? Should I use Jim Simon’s selling trade as an indicator to not invest in Nvidia? (2+ year horizon/-30% downside tolerance). I know he can hold positions less than 1 minutes but seeing this makes me doubtful to buy NVDA now
Ladies, I know I’m very late on this but been reading about HPV vaccines. Have any of you gotten the vaccine? Side effects? Things to know? I’m not currently sexually active and have only had 1 sexual partner my entire life so haven’t really given this much thought. I’m reading now that the vaccine is less effective as you get older (30F).

In the Jacksonville area. Curious about opportunities out there for accounting consulting work. I truly have a passion for helping companies make their accounting departments more efficient, helping them focus their resources on the things that matter. My firm does some of this now, but I would love to grow that practice here. Is this something you all recommend to your clients? If you have people that you do this for, how have you connected with those individuals?

After 4 YOE, I’m starting to lose all motivation to stay in corporate (been in consulting and industry now). I’ve never felt any motivation or excitement making ppts, doing PMO or working on strategy projects and want to maybe switch careers. Has anyone made a leap elsewhere and can offer guidance?

This is making more and more sense why creator funds are paying so little, and why other charity accounts cry fouls. BBC report shows TikTok takes 70% from the top on money gifted for charity before making available the donated values in a users account. Despite some accounts earning $1000 an hour, after TikTok’s cut and middlemen expenses, families receive just $19.

Daylight savings time is the worst. I want to get rid of it altogether.
Daylight savings is the best. I want to be in it all year. These next four months are going to be torture. RIP sun.
So, this isn't daylight saving time. This is standard time. It sucks
I like it dark, cold and rainy. Already dreading spring
Why? It’s 60 mins
Daylight saving. Fixed it for ya
