Need advice on creating proposal for separating from my firm where I am a partner and have practiced 20 years. Leaving to solo a boutique practice. Would ideally like to preserve the referral relationship for matters outside my practice area but don’t know if that’s possible. Timeline? Negotiation points? New firm will be 100% ready in 2-4 weeks.
One key mistake I made while trying to get into PM was to tailor my resume bullet points towards *proving* I was a PM (I did user research! I defined the product vision!) vs. explaining what exactly I did. More lessons learned / tips and tricks 🔗 below.
Thinking about joining a series B startup as a Senior PM. In addition to me, there’s a head of product, and 2 other more junior PMs. How much stock ownership is to be expected in this offer? Ie what is normal amount of basis points?
Partners. Do team members just come and go from your perspective? Feeling very disengaged and demotivated… do leaders actually care to talk people through these low points in their careers or is this something we need to figure out on our own? Want to talk it out but feeling like a burden more than anything.
So strange, I’ve been stuck at 199 ‘smart’ points for a few days. I woke up this morning and it still hadn’t advanced to 200. Wondering which of you hasn’t chipped in yet? Total BS move if you ask me.

Looking at houses around $800k. Just got introduced to the idea of a jumbo loan…. I have about $125,000 in equity in my current house, which will probably be closer to $100k by the time closing is done. My local lender is requiring 20% down on a jumbo loan, which I don’t have. My first question is—does anyone know of a lender who doesn’t require 20% on a jumbo? Second, I have about $100k equity in a rental property but lender requires 40% down on investment properties for a HELOC. Help!

In NYC w/ 50k stashed for what I hope to be a downpayment on a 2 bedroom or more apt in 6 months. Am I being unrealistic in trying to find something for my budget in Astoria, BK, or Jersey city?
Having equity tied up in the house is a waste imo. I have 300K in equity. I’d be better off if I sell and move and put most of that into stocks. In 30 yrs, the returns will outdo any home appreciation. Thoughts?
Anyone know what kind of downpayment I’d need to buy a house in Atlanta? Know markets crazy right now but our rent just went up 11% for our apartment lease to renew which has me thinking I need to stop renting probably by beginning of next year . Household income >$100k but currently a good bit of our monthly income is going to education expenses for my wife and I (will=$20k total and is our largest expense outside rent)
I need some advice on securing additional debt on my house. The house is worth about $1.1M and has about $600K in debt, so about 55% LTV. I’d like to take some cash out for some home improvements and some investments. My question is, should I go for a second mortgage or a fixed rate home equity line of credit. Any leads on the lowest rates on those products? Thanks!

To those of you who invest excess HSA funds, what do you normally buy?
I’m considering just VTI or VOO. Theoretically I won’t need these until retirement related medical expenses. Should I be concerned about unforeseen medical emergencies?
For reference, I just transferred by HSA balance that’s been piling up into a new brokerage account. It’s about $3,000, and I left $200 in my HSA account associate with the debit card. I’m 27 and incur basically no medical expenses.
Hi strangers, tell me what to do with my money 🤠
I’m 22 years old still living with my parents with minimal expenses. I make $65k, maxed out my 401k, have no debt, $30k in an HYSA, and $13k in a brokerage account. When I move out in 6 months or so, I estimate I’ll need $12k in an emergency fund. Should I put everything except that in my brokerage account? I hate that I have so much in the so called “high yield” account only making 0.45%
Is there a good book to teach kids, teens and even college students about personal finance or should i write one?!
Hypothetical: let's say I take 100,000 today after my taxes and invest it in a brokerage account for 30 years (I'm 25). If we assume 7% interest rate it comes out to be 750k. If I draw below the 80K threshold for capital gains each year (married filing jointly) then that whole thing is tax free right? Am I missing something? I know we need to assume taxes stay the same/similar, and I can live off of 70K at 55. But anything else?

Weekend Tip: a good financial habit is to watch Warren Buffet Speaking once a year at the shareholders' meeting. For extra fun, watch previous years, many are in YouTube.
Stock futures are going to crash 3-4 % lower on Monday. Nasdaq losses will be more mild though. At this point there will be a few winners and a whole lot of losers. 15 days of protests and corona cases plus shift into q2 forecast will lead to at least 10% pullback. Long live AMazon and Apple

It’s a cheaper time to enter than a few weeks ago. But no one knows if it’ll keep dropping in the near to medium term
DCA at regular intervals, increase contribution if you feel market has gone down enough..
How is that different from this?
Just invest, don’t freak if it dips, and continue investing regularly.
For long term investment the current price doesn’t matter. If you are looking for short term gains then you’ll have better luck in individual stocks than ETF
