Get busy living or get busy dying. Dude cut your expenses and up your effort. Work harder = more free meals at work and less time in clubs, no junior need Gucci or Hermes, maybe don't fly home as much, make them come to you. I've NEVER spent any bonus

I wouldn't imagine it's very many, unless they've spend all of their money on paying down student loans and they went to an expensive school. If you've gone 1.5yrs and your bank balance is actual zero and you still have loans and no investment, you've been living the models and bottles life way too much, which is just dumb.

Are there women here that have a significantly larger income than their male partner/ spouse? My husband used to make a little more money 10 years ago when we first met (when we were both making under 60k). Then I started climbing a fast track career ladder and now make a total comp of close to 300k and he is still under 80k... (which is totally fine with me btw). But I have noticed that this has caused a lot of serious issues for our relationship. any advice?

What’s your take on counteroffers? I recently was offered a role at a growing company (Recent IPO) with what looks like a bright future. The downside is it’s a lat move doing sim work with small increase to base but additional bonus and RSUs that won’t vest for 3 years. Main reason I was leaving current role was due to boredom and wanting a change. Recent restructuring at current place has opened opp’s and they countered with a promotion and 30% bump with all new responsibilities/path. Thoughts?

I was hoping one of these next certs will help me finally break into a security role and love the idea of pentesting but not sure if the CySA+ is more beneficial.
