If you abide by the 80/20 rule, what 20% of your own strategy generally brings back the majority of your results?
What am I missing with traditional IRAs? If you exceed the income limit to make a deduction to reduce your adjusted gross income (aka, high-income earner), is a traditional IRA even with it?
Currently at 350k cash and 100k in stock. Thinking about boomeranging, what level do I need to come in across MBB?
To all who want to prevent a repeat of the Trump nightmare, PLEASE vote in presidential primaries. If you're independent, consider voting in the GOP primary to put forward a less toxic candidate.
If the primaries are dominated by the "extreme" base, we are going to continue to deal with absurd candidates.

How many muslims in nyc here?
Recently I had given couple of interviews for a company and after 10 days, HR had called me and told that my feedbck is positive. They just wanted me to join early but my notice period is 2 months and they were ready to buy me out,. I told them that there is possibility but it depends on my company’s current resources. So we discussed salary and HR asked me to sent my current salary details. I have gt an update from HR that it will take some to get the approval. How long it might take?Amazon IBM Tata Consultancy

Here’s an entirely unrelated to work question, but one that’s entirely “rooted” in vanity. Has anyone had any experience with Bosley or other hair restoration procedures? If so, what was your experience?
What are some of the most influential factors which helped shape your career and led to a successful rise up to PPMD level ?
Anyone else feel more disconnected from the younger people after mid 40s? I understood their plight, knew the lingo, knew what kind of in-person gatherings would be fun, etc. All of a sudden I feel like I have no idea how to connect. I want them to get off my lawn and I’ve never felt that way before. Just looking for an ear.
Im a fourth year partner. The clients are good, workload is manageable, have a great team and a great boss. But I'm just not motivated to go and kill it anymore. It just feels more of the same thing. Also, I keep having a feeling that I could be doing a lot more if I were in a startup or in a different corporate role. The only reason that stops me from doing any of this is that money here is good and I worked really hard to get here. Any advice?
Any partners transfer from Big4 or Accenture to MBB and live to tell the tale? Did you like the change? Did you fit with the culture?
What is the Partner culture at McKinsey like right now? I am considering making a lateral move.
Considering an MD position at Accenture and need to give comp expectation, its on Strategy side. Of course its based on my own need and desire, but like to hear from (ex)MDs at Accenture if 400k sounds like a reasonable ask for base. And can anyone help me understand the difference between L4 and L3? For reference, I am a Senior Principal with almost 2 years executive industry experience post consulting. Thanks for any insights!
FYI, all: McKinsey works for oil companies. I know no other firms ever would do such a thing, so wanted to get it off my chest. Thanks for listening.
Any folks have interesting alternate investments that do well and you would care to share? (e.g. franchises, non-financial market investments)
Are you folks able to keep up with reading books (any genre)? If yes, how long on average does it take you to complete one?
Any suggestions on how to get an adjunct teaching role at a university. Don't need money or prestige. I enjoy teaching and gives me something to do when I retire in ~10 yrs. Many colleagues who do this are big alumni donors. My Alma mater is too far away to be practical option. I'm an expert in a very in demand field - get quoted in articles all the time but have not been able to connect with anyone in academia.
I'm an Accenture Managing Director considering a move to Deloitte. I've got 15 - 20 yrs possibly left in my career. Any thoughts on Managing Director vs Principal?
Anyone have a child in Avenues NYC? Thoughts? Worried about English Literacy given they split time with second language immersion. My child is already fluent in Spanish so that is less of a gain.
Joining Accenture as a lateral MD next month. Any inputs on how to build network and connect with fellow MDs, especially in a remote setup? Are people open to collaborate with “outsiders” at a senior level, or should I expect friction with people protecting their turf and sticking to their own connections? How is the work culture like at MD level? For context, I will join strat and consulting.
Not even proud... especially given that my sleep goal isn’t too lavish in the first place. How are you folks coping?
All - In the process of moving out from MD to another competing company.
Does anyone provide contact of a good lawyer to deal and take care of non compete, non solicitation clauses as a part of exit process?
I am curious about Protiviti. Any partners move from Big 4, IBM or ACN? I have heard it’s very collaborative. What about their pipeline and clients?

Partner poll - is COVID causing you to fundamentally rethink whether you want to stay in consulting? Cannot stop thinking about using this disruptive moment to hang my own shingle and do something completely different - buy/start a small business. 22 years in consulting. Partner 7 yrs. Young family.
New to Fishbowl?

Mostly SFH’s. Bought in 2008, started renting it out in 2010. $200k purchase price now worth $600k. Did a cash out refi at 2.5% during COVID.
Picked up two flips in 2015 generating 8% ROI. Three more turnkey after that. 30-40% increase to market value
Bought four SFH homes in rapidly growing cities between 2017 and 2021 (around $400K each) with 25% down payment. Rent pays for 15 year mortgage and escrow plus I get to keep $1200 per month. Home valuation went up by 40% on average as well.
I’ve always done multi family because I didn’t like the SFH “all or nothing” scenario. That can be mitigated if you buy a few of them at once, but I just went straight for 3-4 unit buildings, and my most recent was a 10x unit apartment bldg. I sold this one recently, but rolled gains into another 12x unit building.
I bought my first investment house as housing for my college student child and rent the other rooms. I’ve had some hassles with it. Literally can’t find anyone to do lawn care, fence damaged by wind, giant tree died, outdoor faucet froze/broke. In comparison to paying for housing for our child it’s been cheaper but as an investment it’s a hassle. My other real estate investments are all through private funds. No work, hopefully better return. As an individual I couldn’t buy a large apartment complex and then refurbish the units but through the private fund can do that.
I love real estate!! Investing in real estate can take many forms, and what works best for one person may not work for another. That being said, many people who have invested in real estate have found success with long-term single-family rentals. This approach involves purchasing a single-family home and renting it out to tenants on a long-term basis. The advantages of this strategy include the potential for steady cash flow, long-term appreciation, and the ability to leverage leverage the property's equity to purchase additional properties. Other investors may have found success with other forms of real estate investment like multi-family rental properties, commercial properties, flipping properties, vacation rentals, and more. It's important to do your own research and find what approach aligns best with your goals, risk tolerance and the market you are operating in.
Anyone invest via a private reit and be willing to share your experience? I’ve read a lot about them but haven’t met anyone who is actually in one.
Ditto - I use one based in TX and have a 10-15% share of 4 different established multi-family properties in hot cities (Nashville, Austin, Dallas, and one other I’m forgetting). Into each for $300-500K. They pay about 5-6%/year as they refurbish and bring pricing to market, and then I get the upside of the appreciation at sale in 2-4 years (which can be 50+%)….not sure if it’s a REIT per se, more a shared private equity play in real estate.
I have been investing in SFH long-term rental (1 year term) since 2016. Great tax advantages and the appreciation has been an excellent way to diversify from the stock market. I have generated 16% annual return with appreciation and leverage included. I do not use a property management company and I broke even in Year 1 if rented 9.5 months. I now break even if rented 8 months and I have had one tenant that has renewed four times. I am looking for another high quality rental property but tougher in the current market.
