What’s the cost range of health insurance for a young family of four if you are self employed?
Anyone have perspective on how MBB (specifically Bain) benefits are better than big 4? I heard Bain contributes 4.5% of salary to your 401k regardless of any employee contributions, which is great. Any other big perks that make their benefits package superior to others (eg. Big 4)?
After you’ve contributed enough to get your employer match, what is the advantage of maxing a 401k vs contributing to another investment account you manage yourself? You still get taxed at the end.
I am hoping for some advice. I was a young mom (17 when pregnant) and ended up having three kids by 23. I’ve since pulled myself up by my boot straps and am doing well in my career and have seen good trajectory. The thing is, it’s always nagged at me that I never went to college. I don’t want to go to college in the traditional sense but my new employer offers some tuition reimbursement (if related to the job). I’m in tech, specifically software. What should I look into?
So, how is the new Marriott Bonvoy news impacting your loyalty to the program? I am currently Titanium Elite, so I feel as though it would still be worthwhile to maintain such status going forward given the benefits.

Tip for young ones looking to go to BSchool. Put all your money in traditional 401k. Then when you go to bschool, and have zero wages for that year (maybe the internship), convert to Roth with very low income tax. Tax arbitrage right there! 💸💸💸

I need to buy and entire wardrobe. 2020 grad here. I’ve been remote this whole time so I don’t know what to expect as far as dress code. I read our handbook but it doesn’t really help me understand expectations. I’d like to keep my bold style (patterns, colors, unique pieces) and I’m a creative in NYC, so can I get away with it? How about hair and makeup- is it an expectation to be fully “put together”? Oh & shoes, heels a must? Any advice appreciated, super nervous about being perceived again.

Venting: Just had a designer refuse to lowercase a word because they “felt strongly” that I was wrong about it. Even after I pulled examples from the client website of the correct usage, and got the 2cents of the copywriter who’s been on the account for 8 years. I had to tell them that they were being inappropriate and just make the change. Finally they did, and then shot me a note saying they’d find time on our calendars to talk about this tomorrow. Talk about what??? Who gets the final say?

Hey I have an ASC840 accounting question on this scenario - a target sold an asset 10 years ago for 10,000,000 and immediately leased it back. They recorded a deferred gain of $1M and amortized it over the term of the lease (still going) and letting that gain every month reduce the rent expense. Since this deal is cash free debt free shouldn’t we treat this as a debt like item? They received the cash in a prior period but we are now stuck with the payments. Debating how to quantify the adjstmnt
