Considering getting my masters in art education K-12. Thoughts? Am I crazy? I know the pay is a lot less but a pension and tenure is pretty appealing.
I’m a 28F who is barely getting into investing. It’s frustrating that it took this long but as a first gen college grad, my parents didn’t know anything about this stuff until very recently, so naturally I was never taught about it. It’s crazy to see people younger than me with all this knowledge on saving and investing. How did you learn so much at such a young age? Any advice for someone like me who is starting out so late in the game?
I'm an expat thinking about starting a 401k. Is that a good move? I have no intention of retiring in the US but would be ok with leaving the money here until reaching retirement age.
EY fish - any suggestions for options within our 401k if I want to pull out of FXAIX (S&P 500 Index) and cool my heels for a while? I like the idea of bonds or gold equivalent (or cash I guess) but not sure which option is best. Perhaps VIPIX?

Honestly, I don't know how anyone is staying in Big 4, even partners.

Opening up a Roth IRA as I’m paying off the remainder of my student loans at year’s end (yay). Goal is to aggressively max out the $6k after. My FA mentioned that some companies offer an “insertus (sp?) rollover” where you can xfer Roth 401k funds into this Roth acct. after hitting the 6k max (1x per year). Has anyone heard of this that can provide a bit more clarity? I’m very intrigued. Thx!
