How do you guys decide where to invest money? I just bought a 2 bedroom apartment that I’m confident will bring long term growth. I plan on buying another apartment for rental purposes in the next few months. But I want to start investing in the market in a smart way that will lead to greater financial stability. Does anyone have any tips / books they use? I can’t invest directly so I would need to hire an investment manager - but I feel like i don’t even know where to start.

I was told that I won’t be considered for my promotion to SM this year end because I’m on maternity leave. This sounds sketchy given that I did everything in my power to prepare before I went on mat leave. Now I’m pushing my coach and leadership to let me go up for promotion in an off cycle promotion. Is this fair and normal or is this a sign I need to look for a new job and resign? I feel like I’m being punished for being on maternity leave.
Joined USI as an Analyst and I feel really depressed. My seniors are hell bent upon making it all the more difficult. I used to love my job once upon a time but nowadays I just dread the Monday morning and even more so the stand-up calls. On the top of all this my seniors/leads do not stop criticising my work and make me feel like a loser which has impacted my confidence. I sometimes break down alone in my room while working and feel very frustrated. Is this normal or am I just in a bad project?

Dilute burnout through the winter with PTO or go all in on exit apps?

My uncle, and aunt, had about $750k in investments scattered across 14 different retirement accounts, brokerage accounts, annuities, on different platforms. They are 65. Three months ago they asked me if I could help them consolidate everything. I agreed. We started the process and this week the last of the funds came into their new Vanguard accounts! Question: how do I scale this work organically, as a side hustle? I have an MBA in finance, but no CFP or other financial planning designation.

In case you never got to see the New York Times article about air quality in classrooms, I’m posting it here for you. It makes some very important points about creating the safest possible environment for students and teachers. 1. Open windows if it all possible 2. Place air purifier centrally 3. Don’t place fans in a way where the air is pointed at people Have a great year and keep yourself and your students safe! https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2021/02/26/science/reopen-schools-safety-ventilation.html ￼￼￼￼￼
So my last day at the office was a week ago and my final pay check came in this morning it does not have the vacation pay out I was expecting. When does that come in?
Not sure where to ask this. I went and had a wellness visit and a visit to check a torn rotator cuff at my local hospital system in July. I had Aetna through KPMG. November 1st I switched to my wife's health insurance through her company. I just got a letter in the mail Friday from the hospital. My wife's insurance rejected all of my claims, didn't pay anything, and I owe the full balance personally. Shouldn't Aetna have paid this? Can I go and make Aetna cover it retroactively?
