Hey ladies, I have to vent. I’ve been in a friends with benefits on and off situation with this guy for 10 years. I recently hit him up because we haven’t spoken in a year and I missed him. Long story short, he cheated on his current gf with me. I asked him if he had any regrets. He said he feels bad, but it was worth it. I just don’t understand how he can physically melt in my presence but after all this time doesn’t want to *be* with me

Did anyone else start a career in PA later in life? I went back to school for a post bacc and started this year as an A1. I was a small business owner throughout my 30s and decided I needed a change, financial security and benefits for my family. I just turned 40 in August and have two young children. Most of the time I’ve felt fine, but there are moments where I just feel so much older than my colleagues. I’d love to hear from others. Thanks!

Currently mid twenties, and trying to take financing more seriously and would really appreciate some insight on how to allocate my income into savings!

Obviously putting 6k into roth ira, and I need help with insight on how to allocate he remaining 24k between Roth 401k, emergency fund, personal saving, etc.
I don’t mean to be vague but does anyone have experience or insights on if things are “better” as a black person working as a consultant or in house somewhere rather than in an agency? Any POV is helpful. For background I currently work at Ogilvy in a pretty junior role and I see NO ONE that looks like me. Peers or at the top aside from those in HR/diversity and in addition to dealing with the day to day reality of being a POC in corporate America, its hard to visualize a path to “the top”.
