What % of your stock investment do you trade on frequent basis? e.g., out of my $100k invested in stock market, 90k is in index funds / ETFs for long term. I was wondering if the remaining 10k I have in “trends-driven” fund or stock (e.g., Zoom, RIOT, MGNI) should I trade frequently (sell at high, buy again when low..) Will tax implications impact decision / profits?
Need opinions.. Over a month ago, I applied as a Content Marketing Manager (3-5 years of exp.) at a software startup. It’s a newly created role at a company with ~15 people. I’ve been through 3 zoom interviews & one in person. I have created a video project, email newsletter, & have done 2 case studies as requested during the interview process. I was just asked to do another ‘final’ project.. I've spent hours on the others & I’m starting to feel like this process is too excessive.. thoughts?
What is a fun/dramatic tv show to watch for a zoom date? We already had one date several weeks ago. Preferably something interesting but also something we can talk over. Thanks for the suggestions!
30 weeks pregnant and instead of having a zoom celebration, I’d just like to send an email to family and friends to upload their selfie on a website with words of wisdom for us first time parents (which we can print into an album book of some sort). And ideas on what website to use for this? Or any other creative ideas to get family and friends involved that does not require an online party? Thank you
How to deal with a spouse that has had it with my relapses. Overall doing great. Used to drink daily to excess for about ten years. Now I have a lapse about once every two years and my spouse hates me and refuses to speak with me. I honestly feel I have come along in leaps and bounds and some slack would be great, I am not perfect but a million miles better than I was. Are they being unfair or am I still a selfish drug addict that needs to give more empathy?
That feeling when you let one rip and then scramble to double check if Zoom is still muted... and it is

Just had a great Zoom breakout room chat with a Bain Consultant who’s an alum the b-school I’m attending (Experience Bain). Asked a couple questions and really enjoyed the convo. Ok to connect on LinkedIn?

That feeling when a well meaning manager keeps ending meetings with “have a happy holiday, and enjoy some time off with your family,” and he is unaware that some of us (a) already celebrated Hanukkah (and don’t really celebrate anyway), (b) are alone and unhappy, (c) kind of have no reason to burn PTO for a non holiday when you’re alone, bored, and have nothing going on in yet another month of a terrible year. It’s like one more set of fingers on a chalk board listening to such pleasantries.

We have ~$400k HHI. Monthly expenses are ~$6k (1 child). We live in Austin. We’re seriously considering getting a 900k to 1M house which we wouldn’t be considering if the market in Austin wasn’t so crazy but we’re really big on proximity to culture/resources and need to stay in the area (can’t move to Houston, Dallas, San Antonio , etc.). We also just honestly feel like the suburbs out here are so very bland. Thoughts on us doing this? Are we crazy? Is this understandable given where we live?
