Potentially stupid but serious question alert: I want to move my money from checking to an index fund (e.g., SP500 type) to build passively vs. it just sitting in my bank. My questions arise around how liquid is this (e.g., if I need to make a large purchase and take a portion of the investment) and what are tax implications for short term withdrawals/selling (e.g., I invest 10k, sell 2k to make a purchase, does this actually help financially or does short term taxes /other negate any benefits)?

Every time I talk about my mental health and my struggles I feel like I get the “consulting isn’t for everyone” response and I feel like that’s just an excuse for toxic corporate environments. Just because I process things differently and need to work differently doesn’t mean I can’t produce great work.

Had no idea how good my previous firm’s insurance was until I signed up for Deloitte’s.....
Hired a new nanny and currently on day 2. I am still on maternity leave so helping toddler transition and baby. She seems nice but tardy and my toddler is a rocket. My husband made breakfast for me she came and ate it. She helped the toddler nap and now sleeping lying next to him 🤦♀️.

Can I get some tips please ?

Made it to the final interview at a pretty good company for UX Design. Was super excited for it, but didn't make the cut. What do you all do to recover from rejection? Any tips? (Do you prevent yourself from getting attached in the first place?) Also, how do I identify my shortcoming in the interview process so I know what I can improve on them for the next?

What bank do you use for client trust account or IOLTA? I checked BOA and the monthly fees are ridiculous. They used to have IOLTA accounts with zero fees. I guess that’s no longer the case.
