It’s funny…concur I believe is the best solution on the market. It’s super expensive compared to competitors as well. My guess is its a hard technology to create. Need to bidirectional connectivity to all the reservation systems of airlines and hotels…my guess is its a huge mess

Been thinking about buying this reasonable dividend growth fund from vanguard - I like the approach and the manager. The ER is 0.26%. I did the quick math vs my Schwab S&P500 index at .02% and it’s a staggering amount of expense over 20 years and 500K investment. How do people justify paying 1% etc for their investments when you can own S&P 500 for almost nothing.

Hey guys. I have a soon to be nonprofit church struggling because they already started services (collecting offerings too against my advice) before things were set with an EIN and they gave an event already planned out and are trying to find a way to spend and collect before the things are in order. They want to know if one of their small business owners can expense and collect then consider it a donation. Is this possible? Any advice or loopholes that are Legal and will avoid issues later on?

At a former company, they let you expense $20 for working 10+ hours in a day, but you could never use it because it would always be rejected. Recently started at a new firm, and I had a rough week last week (two 14+ hour days). New firm has a similar policy, so I asked. Was told not to submit the $20 reimbursements. Just as I was about to get frustrated, he told me I should get dinner for my wife and me. Only rule was to keep it under $100. Don't like working 14 hour days, but this was nice.

To con't the conversation on engagement rings💍 - what do they symbolize to you? My BF and I got into a discussion about this last night. He views them as an investment and an "asset" on the books for his future family. He also has grandparents who had to finance their trip to America by selling their jewels. I see the ring as more of a gift to the future bride that is an expense that can be sold for money if needed, but isn't an investment. I'm fine w/ lab grown, he is not. Thoughts?

My boss treats me like his secretary.

This frustrates me to no end but the exposure I’m getting to new tech skills is amazing so I can’t just walk away! Suggestions on how I can get him to respect me?!
