I’m 30, with no kids, currently paying $540/mo for a whole life insurance policy through my advisor (family friend, mind you) at NWM. No debt, investing 2k a month into other more traditional investments (e.g., 401k, ira). I care less about the death benefit but I’ve been repeatedly reminded about the guaranteed RoR associated with the cash value - does this investment vehicle make sense to continuing with? TIA!
What is everyone’s number? I did the math and at a 7% annual return on my 401k and investment account (accounts for max 401k each year and conservative brokerage allocations each year) I could be at around 8m by 50. Does that seem like a reasonable age & number?
I am new to the healthcare space, but interested in being staffed on a project. Any suggestions on resource( book/articles) that I can use to pick up some pace in this industry ?
So, apparently my school has the lowest teacher attendance this year. As teachers- what would be a good incentive to get perfect attendance and not use your PTO?
I go on maternity leave soon, and my firm offers 16 weeks paid leave, which I plan to fully take advantage of. The only female shareholder in our office keeps pushing me to only take 6 weeks though, because that's what she did. I feel really put off by her comments, but its also making me feel guilty about taking the full time. This is mostly a vent, but if anyone wants to give me some words of wisdom or thoughts, I will take them!
Help me understand this. From a salary of 120k, I’m getting a total tax deduction of 27%. That’s $32,400 going to the government. 32 thousand?!?!?! Do I ever get any of it back? Why so much? It technically reduces my income to $87k. Can someone please explain. I’m appalled.
It was cold the way I was laid off by EY. But thanks be to God I found a better job at another CPA firm, getting paid 50% more, plus overtime pay, benefits, and it's 15 minutes from my house. #blessed
I am thinking of making the jump from SLP to healthcare administration. Looking for insight on pay, job opportunities and job satisfaction. Thank you!!!
If I've maxed out my TFSA, should I continue investing through an RRSP or a personal investment account? For context, I also have a good pension. My main concern is that while the RRSP will be nice to lower my taxable income now, I'm worried when I retire I'll have to withdraw too much from both the RRSP and pension. Thoughts?
I just returned to work (PT @ home) from maternity leave. I was called in to cover an emergency hearing in court this week. Opposing counsel and I were negotiating a last minute agreement. I excused myself for 15 min to pump since it had been several hours (I informed her of my plan before leaving). When I returned she was raving and threatening a hearing - accused me of not being focused and taking too long. Am I wrong to be mad? Any advice about how to pump when your scheduled to be in court?

Hi everyone, I recently was able to score an interview at IQVIA for an assoc. consultant position. I have been looking to get into healthcare consulting for a long while and consider this my big break, but I’m incredibly anxious. Does anyone have tips on the interview process/cases/how to prepare, etc.?

Could I get away with traveling to NYC? I know they have quarantine restrictions right now. I have a family emergency.
I don’t know if I’m from a different generation but I can’t believe I have to ‘set expectations’ w my analyst to at least check their email *once* on the weekend to see if anything’s blowing up
Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?

What would Trump say if he was a consultant?
Anyone else feel guilty when spending money? Even though it’s well within your budget? I made big purchase and immediately felt guilty afterwards even though it’s within my budget.
