What would you do if you were me? Late 30s. Burned out. 1.4M invested in index funds (75% in in post tax accounts). 4k/month fixed housing expense. Untilites/insurance/subscriptions at 1k/month. After that it's food, clothing, and one-off expenses. Dual income family of 4. Monthly burn rate gets up to 9k when we're not paying attention so I'm not traditional FIRE yet. Coasting options? Sabbatical? A few more years in the salt mines? Rental properties or other time suck investments?
I’m a little over a month in to my new role and feel like I keep choking on external calls I have. Thankfully my manager is on them and can jump in and I’m trying to learn and apply it next time but it’s killing my confidence. I also have this fear that I just don’t have the skills to have these conversations and will get fired. Any tips/thoughts/encouragement?
I was never a perfume person, but recently decided I want to be. We don’t go anywhere notable with COVID around, so I just wear it around the house in my lounge outfits (aka uniform of the past two years). Still perks me up though!

How often do you guys see your parents normally in non-covid times? Do you feel it’s too little much or wish you could see them more? In my 20s I used to see them every other month but as I’ve “settled down” in my 30s it’s been harder with distance and spouse so it’s down to once a quarter. Feel quite guilty and sad about it
Folks that exited from Big 4 to MBB: do you regret it? Despite moving to a great firm like McK, having second thoughts about the decision due to the long hours and constant hustle to prove myself again. Don’t see myself staying in consulting forever, and have already been in consulting for 3.5 years. Any advice from folks that have done this? Can’t help but feel I should’ve kept looking for a FAANG exit rather than consulting.
