I'm single M. Mid 30s and have been working since early 20s. 300k in investments ( including emergency fund) and another 200k in 401k retirement .
Fully stressed out and thinking of taking a break for 2 years to decide what I want to do with life and some global travelling with points. Plan is to use 2k/mo for 24 months totalling 48k.
Any other creative ways to coast for 2 years without losing much of what I have accumulated? Or anyone did something similar to this to share your experiences?
So I will hit ambassador with “Bonvoy” tomorrow night. Considering it’s only May, should I switch to IHG properties and go for Intercontinental Ambassador as well? Is there any benefit for loyalty?
Pretty sure the answer is self explanatory but first year with real status. Does Marriott status reset Jan 1? For instance if I need 10 nights for Platnium am I SOL if I stay 9 nights by Dec 31?
Don’t forget to spend your $100 Marriott voucher for Ambassador members by 1/31. Just received my box of chocolates because nearly everything else on that site was out of budget

Does anyone have both Marriott credit cards (Amex and chase) ? I already have the chase and like getting the free night award for just a $95 annual fee. The Amex 125k point offer seems good, wonder if I should get both or if that’s too much for me.

Are recruiters not able to see expected CTC in naukri ? Why the f*** do they call and ask about it again only to say we can't meet it

My quota is based on invoiced sales that resets quarterly. This includes a sliding-scale commission % based on how far you’re at on your quarterly goal (towards quota) which is checked/paid once a month. The only thing that goes toward our quota is PAID sales. This excludes orders still being processed by DE (largest orders) and customers still within NET payment terms. We don’t get paid until the company gets paid. Am I missing warning potential? Am I being expected of A and judged on B?

My sister is thinking of going to UNC, IU Kelley or Fordham (honors) for undergrad. Costs are the same for UNC and Kelley while Fordham would be 10k cheaper after aid. If she’s hoping to do consulting or IB down the line, what would be the best option for her? I’m based in NYC so she could potentially live with me if Fordham. I know UNC and Kelley are targets for IB/Consulting but Fordham’s proximity to the city + 10k cheaper is hard to beat. She’s international. Appreciate the help!
