Have a Q on the Mega Backdoor Roth: I contributed 10% of after tax pay to a normal 401k and called Fidelity to rollover the after tax amount to Roth IRA. The issue though is that the after tax amount gets invested in my 401k investment election. So by the time I called Fidelity to process the rollover, there was a $12 gain on after tax amount. Fidelity transferred the original after tax amount to my Roth and transferred $12 gain to traditional IRA Is that correct? Any tax implications to this?

Business affairs managers who went to law school, did it benefit your career in advertising and how did you balance a career, student debt, salary expectations, and do you recommend it?

I make 95k a year, paid off all my debt and now have ~40k in savings (not including 401k). Currently living at home and think I want to rent an apartment now.
