Applied for a role I was finally excited about/actually wanted. Worked my ass off on the application, would’ve been a great fit based on the description. Then got a response about how the role has shifted. The new role sounds like a lateral move now, and a lower position, guess it’s back to the drawing board. Hard to stay motivated the more this happens.

Thoughts on transitioning from a full-time to a contract role? Contract role is a good opportunity to learn from what appear to be supportive coworkers, but the benefits aren't very good in comparison to the full-time role. Being paid more for the contract role but not sure that will make up for more instability and much more expensive health care. Contract stipulates you can only work for the company for a year and a half, and then you're required to take a three month break.

So WFA allows Advisors to enroll in something called an “Alternative Payroll Strategy” - where instead of getting a commission check 1x/mo and getting taxed at the supplemental rate, you can essentially spread it out over 2 checks, and get a normal annualized tax withholding from your W4 info. Thereby, *potentially*& dramatically decreasing the amount of tax withholding- while still keeping you property withheld. Does anyone here have experience with something like this? Would you recommend it?
