I recently posted about moving to Antigua and Barbuda to live and work remotely on the digital nomad visa. Several people expressed interest in how I'm doing it, so I created an instagram. I'm documenting the steps of emigrating including pet import licenses, enrolling kids in an international school, cooking local food, and assimilating to life in the Caribbean. For those who are interested, check me out at: https://www.instagram.com/webelongbythesea/

Someone mentioned that if you open a blue cash preferred, Amex would utilize the date you open your corporate card rather than the date you opened the new card. Anyone confirm? Also is it worth it?

My school has decided to bring all students back and put them all in the classroom. I have 29 students with the potential of 32. I don’t feel comfortable with this. We are supposed to try to keep 6 ft between isles, but in the row of students they are desk to desk. So shoulder to shoulder 6ft or less. Face to face is about 2ft, and some are much closer....... does anyone else have this going on at their school?
Does Accenture do H1B transfers in US?
Received offer for product management from prestigious non profit tech company; but the pay is quite low. I’m pivoting from consulting and want to break into PM but is it worth it for the low salary?
I got a 2nd job offer after formally accepting another (both start in 2.5 weeks). Job Offer 2 salary is a few grand more than Offer 1(already acceted) AND pays 100% of health/dental/vision premiums, which will save me another few thousand a year. Both jobs are in a city notorious for it's high cost-of-living (my partners job is moving us from the midwest to SF this summer), so several thousand dollars difference *WILL* be noticeable. Is it too late to use Offer 2 to negotiate Offer 1?
Does anyone use Root insurance? I’m intrigued by the low prices (my quote is about $85 vs my current $150 with State Farm) but am concerned as to whether it’s legitimate. More specifically if I ever do get into a serious accident are they reliable? This assumes same coverage for both policies.
Joined Big4 in April, WFH since then. Feels like I'm flying under the radar a lot and have been forgotten about. Started well with setting up meet and greets, trying to network and get to know people but have lost the motivation keep putting myself out there virtually. Have had some busy days, but more often than not I'm filling 3-4 hours of the work day with unstimulating tasks which doesn't feel fulfilling. Should start looking elsewhere or does the EA role get better when we're in the office?

23 years old, $0 in debt, $71k cash in the bank, $12.4K invested in the stock market and working Big 4 making 76.2k a year. Currently invested in VOO, VOOG, BRK.B, and MSFT (ROTH IRA & Individual Brokerage A/Cs).
