Expense the gin and tonic as a wifi charge


They don't.


It's not possible. The above suggestion helps unless your client won't pay for wifi and your supervisor is an expense nazi. I supplement by buying travel size whiskeys and simply refilling each week


Who isn't allowed to expense a drink? I'd say it's easier than wifi to get approved...


^lol who doesn't have their inflight wifi master billed to their company?

2021 was my first year freelance. Live in Massachusetts and just learned they don’t allow solo 401k deductions on state income tax for freelancers. That is a pretty big hit for me. I thought they’d be more friendly to small biz. Also they’re taxing the Cobra subsidy. I mean I’m all for taxes and no way, I’m not moving to NH but this detail just kinda stung. Going after the little guy.


For CLA, what are your salary increase % expectations? What sources would you recommend for comparable salary Info? I am up for promotion from associate to senior and currently making $76k.

My recent feedback from my supervisor has been positive and my career coach is advocating for me to get this promotion.

Asking for a friend: how to best save for retirement if company doesn’t offer either traditional or Roth 401k? Base 150k, bonus has varied between 150-400k for past few years.

I’m honestly curious why the following happens: someone asks a question about covid restrictions/health issues/ etc and half of the responses are “this shouldn’t even be a question”. Today I saw a post about safe countries to travel to and general covid restrictions and half the responses were judgmental and rude. “No one should be traveling now- idk why you’re even asking this question.” “Asking this question means you’re part of the problem” what is UP w this level of judgment?????


How do you actually “keep in touch” with people or former coworkers? It sounds conceptually simple but it seems like our culture is so bad at keeping in touch in general. Thoughts?
