If you do this make sure to address the issue that caused you to accumulate the CC debt in the first place otherwise you are very likely to end up with CC debt again.

Yes. Sofi.

Yeah I’ve been taking steps to curb my expenses and just being more careful. Also created a spreadsheet to budget and using mint. Just need to get out of this debt and I should be good.

I’m attending several weddings this fall (dress codes vary from casual to formal) & I have been on the hunt for dresses. I’ve already hit all the major department stores & I’m really struggling to find things that aren’t super low cut or midi length. Rent the Runway isn’t really an option (I’m only 5’0” & have to get most everything I wear altered). Any other recommendations for where to look? (I’m 30, if it matters) Thanks!

Hi just needed a quick opinion on something. Is it a good time to start with aura ? Or should I skip directly to lwc. I have decent experience of Salesforce around 2+ years but never really gotten a chance to work on aura or lwc so now I’m upgrading myself and want to know which one should I go for. I know for a fact aura is little outdated now but still it’s gonna be here for a while atleast few years and there are many projects based on aura too.

I purchase ACN stock monthly which means I can’t claim a capital loss (due to wash sale rules). Even still, is it correct that it’s better to sell a share at a loss vs a share with gains? (I.e., while I wouldn’t get to claim a loss, I also don’t need to claim a gain)

My father is retired, and is looking into investments. Currently has rental properties, but at a certain point too many of them are a headache that he doesn’t want to deal with.
