I’m 26 now but I want to have two kids around 35. What are some options? I may or may not have a partner then but I don’t want to base this on that. Thoughts? Is it expensive? Should I just get a girl pregnant (kidding...sort of)?
Out of curiosity, is anyone else a single parent on here? I have 50/50 custody, but with all the school activities, on my nights alone I am making up time and working. Leaves little time for personal me time, let alone dating. At this point in my career, it’s not easy to just “coast” and a nanny is not an option. Anyone else in the same boat? Haven’t seen as many single parent executive women around.

We just experienced our first meltdown with 2 kids under 2. We scheduled back to back dr appts for me and our toddler so my husband had to drive and bring everyone. However my appt was running late so my husband had to also bring the baby to the toddler appt. Baby was fussy and cried. Toddler decided to be clingy, did not want to walk and wanted to be carried. My poor husband had to wheel a crying baby and while trying to balance a toddler throwing a tantrum to the doctor’s office where they...
Best self-care tips for dealing with loneliness/sadness this time of year? This is my first Christmas without my mom and it just feels like nothing will ever be the same again 😭.

What’s the highest pay can be offered at BNY Mellon for J grade (AVP) in BA profile ? I have been told they don’t have budget when I asked for 30 fix.
I know I took out the loans and I should repay them and I’m normally fiscally conservative and against giving out free money. But I am hoping student loans get completely cancelled. It would greatly boost the economy if people do not have them hanging over their heads. However, forgiving what is currently there won’t help long term if the predatory practices around student loans aren’t fixed along with soaring tuition prices and salaries for administrators.
Anyone tried the new Sanctions Certificate (CGSS) offered by ACAMS? Trying to see how difficult it is considering I don't have a lot of experience with sanctions compliance. I have CAMS & work in AML

Last friday my O-1 visa was approved and I was about to send my passport to the Embassy. Five hours later the agency that hired me (the offer was sent in the end of February) dumped me and rescinded the offer. That was a big agency. Network. That was the happiest five hours of my life with the worst week in my life to follow. I quit the job, I moved from my place. I’m kinda looking for a job now. If anyhow you know recruiters or where to apply and who is hiring – please, let me know. Thanks.
I'm in a group where I get great reviews each year and earn praise from clients, but partners don't invest much in me or let me work on the "good" deals (I always get the scraps). I'm also the only black attorney in my group, which may or may not be relevant. I doubt I have a chance of making equity partner, though I also don't want to. If you were me, would you go to a competitor just to stick it to people here? Or mail it in, shoot for a NEP/counsel-type gig, collect paychecks, and coast?
What certifications in Org Development do you feel have the most ROI? I have my Master's and experience and want to continue to be marketable.

@EY friends. Any idea on a rough range for someone coming in as a senior. High cost of living city. 5 years of previous big 4 experience. PPM practice most likely.
One quick question-
If one chooses to quit the organization within 7 day. Do we still have to serve notice period.
I joined the Management Consulting division of an organization. The JD and the role offered are poles apart.
Also if anyone could refer me in their company, that would be great.

Honest opinion - student debt forgiveness is a great start but only a bandaid. And a pretty bad one at that. These loans should never have been needed in the first place. Public university should be affordable with a part time job and federal grants - like it was up until the ‘80s. But states have shirked their responsibility to provide affordable college education to their residents and now we are in a big shi**y mess because of it and everyone wants to call it a handout. Thoughts?

We bought a new build house a couple years ago and just found a gap under our back stoop that has settled so the step is just floating rather than actually sitting on the ground on one side. Can we just... Shovel dirt into it? Do we call a handyman? The contractor? I have no idea if or how concerned we should be. The gap extends a little under the house itself but isn't deep

Off-topic but no other active bowl to ask question. SO wants to buy a used BMW —it is certified pre-owned CPO. Not a lot of this model available. Found one at BMW dealer in CA. We are east coast. So we’d have to buy online, ship it, can’t test drive. It’s common to do but I’m nervous. Anyone do this? How did you arrange payment?
Since we’re going to be hanging out at home for a while, does anyone have recommendations for outdoor speakers that are Bluetooth and electrically wired?
