He has roughly 3 yoe and was at a V10 firm doing tech transactions work but took time off for health.

How do I move from healthcare to consulting?
Currently waiting on results, I’ve had a dull discomfort in the upper right area of of my abdominal area. No injury, but just a subtle dull discomfort. My bilirubin levels are slightly elevated but not sure if the discomfort is a reflection of that. X-ray and CT results were sent. I’ve heard it could be fatty liver and watch my diet and exercise. My sister passed recently from cirrhosis from her addictions. I don’t have the same lifestyle but it has definitely trigged a fear in me.

Are you using and getting value from an investment advisor? I’m early 50s with $10M nw. Done it all myself so far mostly through mutual funds. I talked to a free advisor from Fidelity and they want me to talk to a third party (referred to by Fidelity but not Fidelity) that can give me access to “more sophisticated” products. Is it worth 1% to do this? For those that have done this, has it paid for itself? I feel like I’ve done well on my own and I’m hesitate to pay advisor fees.
Anyone have any experience with Atheneum or Coleman Research Group. Both reaching out aggressively about consultations on same / similar topic. Emailing aggressively by the hour to seek scheduling.

Have any of you done anything unconventional with your career after making a partner (other than experiment with roles within the firm)?.
Looking for advice … it often seems I am one click below the level I should be at given I joined consulting in my early 30s post MBA. Joined my current firm again as principal and often seems I can operate at partner level and definitely deliver and sell at one (10-15M year). Part of it has been pushing for it a lot and that I believe is not getting me the right outcomes. Any advice for partners that have been here? Just hit 40 as well.
Instead of buying a second home right now, I’m thinking of renting a small place in another city in a cool, urban development. Instead of peace and quiet, it would be fun to have more access to restaurants and city activities before buying a country retirement home where the grandkids can come and spread out. Has anyone done this? It sounds like fun, though throwing money away on rent vs building equity makes me a little uncomfortable.
Early 40s looking to buy a new home as my 3 kids need their own rooms and I desperately need an office. What’s a good measure on how much to spend. 3x of my yearly income 20% down? I’ll probably need to save $ for major renovations at that price in my current neighborhood. Or should I stretch to 5x income with 30% down? I see a lot of partners with conservative mortgages of 700k. Wondering if you just bought your homes a very long time ago.
