Homeowners question. We have an old AC unit that will need to be replaced in the near future. It uses the old Freon that’s been discontinued. Do people usually pay outright for a new AC unit or is there like some kind of insurance we can add on if ours goes out?
Feel like your health is draining at work? Why are you hesitant to hire a coach? Me: Cost & trust
Am I too old? Too old to chase a wild dream of living in a beach town? Too old to follow a hunch? Too old to sell everything and start over somewhere else? Some days I feel like I am. With parents in failing health and a grandpa that is lonely most of the time, I feel obligated to stay here. To keep living the life that “makes sense”. I’m 32 single, no kids, own my home, essentially have life by the tail. I live an hour from where I grew up. Feel like I don’t fit in with my friends anymore…

How much to expect in Cobra insurance costs? Description just says I have to pay my full premiums, but I don’t know how much ACN pays (so can’t calc full cost). Thinking of switching jobs to a startup and I’ve already met my deductible so might make sense to keep on my current plan. Anyone who used cobra, how much did it cost? Single or family?
My mental health is really suffering because of family drama. Primarily, it's the toxic sexism in my culture (Indian)- feels very unfair how my mom and I get treated, especially by the males (and some toxic females) in the family. Any advice on how to navigate the double standards and lack of decency/respect? I do have a therapist but don't feel as supported with this. Just feeling really depressed, so any constructive thoughts/advice is super helpful.
What’s a realistic amount to save on 130K of gross earnings per year assuming no loans and your goal is to save? I would imagine it’s (assuming HCOL) 85K net - (1.5K a month plus 100ish for utilities) 20K a year, 10K on necessities like food(mix of eating out/in, car insurance, gas, phone), 5-10K on luxuries like vacations, nice-to-have clothes, subscriptions, miscellaneous. This would net to 45K-50K saved a year right? What are your thoughts? Any costs I’m grossly underestimating/missing?

How do you (politely) tell your clients that they invite you to too many meetings everyday? I’m in 6+ hours of client meetings every single day. I feel like I work for them (I’m agency side for a reason) and it’s challenging to have relationships with my internal team because I’m never around! Not to mention my actual work suffers.

What’s your take on counteroffers? I recently was offered a role at a growing company (Recent IPO) with what looks like a bright future. The downside is it’s a lat move doing sim work with small increase to base but additional bonus and RSUs that won’t vest for 3 years. Main reason I was leaving current role was due to boredom and wanting a change. Recent restructuring at current place has opened opp’s and they countered with a promotion and 30% bump with all new responsibilities/path. Thoughts?
Working with a recruiter to finalize an offer for a job that won’t start until February- to avoid paying back a bonus to my current company. Any tips on staying motivated? 😂 I don’t want to burn this bridge completely, but it’s soooo hard to keep working hard when you know you’re about to get a 10-15% base increase.
