I've done the free financial trading and investment for beginners course from Shaw academy which was a good initial intro. I learned a lot too from just opening a brokerage account and going on investopedia. I've done ok primarily due to working with clients in technical work and then talking with enterprise account managers for various tech products that I've learned have a large customer base. I stay away from options typically.

Thoughts on putting it all in a large-cap growth fund (VIGIX)? Returns have been solid over last 10 years. Investing through work, so don't have all funds available to me.

Anyone else feel somewhat lost on what interests them long term in their career or if you’re even in the right realm of consulting? Any advice on how I can reflect and figure this out? Context - I applied for any open business analyst position in my city after graduating and ended up in healthcare consulting. I don’t love or hate it. I get the work done and I learn a lot about the healthcare industry but I’m not the most passionate about the work/industry either.
