Has anyone went from saas to benefit consulting? How was that transition? Was it worth it? I hear in benefits you get a book with recurring revenue.

I haven't, but it's because I'm comfortable where I'm at in SaaS consulting. I've heard great things about benefit consulting, but I'm not particularly keen on having to relearn anything. Interested to see what others have to say.

I didn’t come from Saas but can speak to being in employee benefits. It is definitely a lucrative industry if you are with the right firm and have the right mindset. You will need to be comfortable with networking and leveraging that network to bring in new business. I would recommend looking into the big 4 in this space and seeing if any of the roles would be a good fit (Mercer, Marsh, Willis Towers Watson, and Gallagher).

As for revenue that’s correct. Most firms pay between 20-40% for a sale in the first year you have the business. After the first year they usually pay between 10-20%. If you’re interested in more information I’d be happy to connect.

Product Management - I am somewhat interested in trying to move into product management. I have led internal analytics product development at a prior firm, and have led clients through developing/improving “products” for their teams to use however I have not led “consumer facing” products and my experiences have not been as “formal” as many PM roles ask for. I work in healthcare and would want to stay there. I’m wondering if others have any thoughts on these transitions.

I’m married. I have saved $200k in traditional IRA (after rollovers from employer) and my husband has only saved $25k in his traditional IRA. We are doing much better financially and are looking for ways to catch up and save more for retirement. Can we convert my husband’s balance to a Roth and pay those taxes and then do back door Roth contributions in his name? Backdoor Roth for me really isn’t feasible unless I roll my traditional to my ER 401k plan but investment options aren’t great.

I’m feeling optimistic about the long-term but it would be nice to see some reward before the long weekend 🙃

I also got a little excited and bought CRSP the other day and I can’t decide if I’m going to hang on to it until tomorrow afternoon’s Healthcare Talks 😅

For context, I probably should invest ~80-100k ...any advice where to start?
