Just arrived to Sydney from Chicago with my wife and 2 sons both under 2. Escorted to hotel quarantine and spending these 2 weeks trying to figure out if I would/could/should make the move to Sydney permanent. Wife and kids are Australian citizens. Made a list of pros and cons- cons column is empty - the only concern is work. How are you folks doing with COVID economy? Are there significant downsizing? How’s the projected technology consulting pipelines down here?
Would you consider taking a pay cut if the move provided flexible hours and no travel? I’m starting a family and think traveling will be too much on everyone.
I have been offered a job at TikTok and told them from the very beginning that my start date would be 1st July. I have been planning to take 6 months off to travel for 4 years now. They came back saying that the start date wouldn’t work. Any tips on how I can negotiate this?
Just stayed at the st Regis Bal Harbour Miami and decided to abandon the St Regis brand all together. Not worth the $ and they do not honor Bonvoy member benefit. I’m an Ambassador Elite but they wouldn’t give me even one hour of late check out. They put me on a fourth floor and asked for cash upgrade. The bathtub was dirty and the mirror has broken edges. St Regis overseas had been very nice but somehow not at all worth it in the US.

How do you measure fire readiness when it Comes to real estate ?
My current + pipeline homes (2-3) year stats:
Purchase (10 homes) 4.3M
Down- about 25%
Market value- guess if 5.4M
Equity of 2.1M , net equity of 1.0 if exclude my down payments
Cash on cash isn’t best but about 4.5% ( lived in some of these homes)
Net income- 50k/yr
Clearly high assets and loans with small cash compared to current income but building wealth. How to measure fire - income? Wealth accumulation?

Hi I applied for a Senior HR Generalist position. I received an email from the company request for me to pull my credit report and provide them with the results and then they will schedule an interview. Has anyone been asked that. I have never encountered that type of request and I am not trusting it at all.
