How do I tell my coach that my depression and crying half the day is why my utilization is lower than expected :( she set up a meeting for tomorrow and I have anxiety
Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process. I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be? One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.

Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?
Any tips for how to make internal networking feel more natural? I know face time without a specific client need is important, but I can't find a way to make it feel authentic.

Hi Ladies! Those of you who have a Dependent Care FSA account - how are you planning to use the amount you have already contributed? My child is going to start kindergarten this year, was planning to use the FSA account to pay for his preschool until the school started. With the pandemic going on, that money is sitting unused. I would not want to lose that money, appreciate your ideas! Thank you.

Thoughts on potential exit to Mid-Cap Cybersecurity company for a product data analyst job vs. privacy program manager at Facebook. Both jobs have very similar salaries but Facebook has sightly better benefits. Would like to end up at Microsoft or Google long term but am worried about Facebook being a resume killer given recent news. For reference, have worked at Deloitte for 2.5yrs in the Cloud Sec space (more strategy than tech)
