I am sick of being a realtor! I've been trying for 5 years and have only sold 3 houses. Where I'm from (small Southern town) nobody is buying. Most people's families already own homes and it's just a bummer to see all these nice houses deteriorating over time.

No offense, but 3 houses in 5 years seems unsustainably low, is this your only source of income?

You know, maybe it was just a bad career choice. It can happen to anyone. Thankfully we have some good transferable skills for marketing and sales so a career switch is always in the cards

Hello, I think you only have 2 options, if you want to continue being a real estate agent you can move to a new place and the other option would be to change your job.

I would tell you to keep trying but man does not live by bread alone, I think you should explore other options such as trying to be a real estate agent focused on rentals.

Consider being a property manager or being a salaried realtor for a company like Redfin.

Hi my IBM Sharks 🦈
I got the following mail today from my people manager:

"Hi Team,
All the IBM employees need to work from office for minimum 3 days a week starting 1st Nov. Please plan accordingly."

I have a medical condition lf slipped disc and I do have MRI, XRay, Prescriptions to validate that.

Will the people manager listen or send it to IBM doctor for validation? And is there any doctor in IBM or its just the people manager who takes the decision?

How do you manage your money?

I only bring in a little over $2,600 a month. After paying all my expenses, I get to put away $500 a month in savings but don’t have much wiggle room for anything else, including going out money.

I’m very privileged to have a significant inheritance and zero debt of any kind. I really wonder how my peers who have student loans, car payments, and even children manage to pay their bills and live so comfortably. Please share if this is you!

I’m seeing lots of posts about really bad losses. If you trade you’re going to lose money - hopefully not all the time, but many positions will be mistakes. But you need a process to find ideas and manage positions. Two books you should read are “The New Trading for a Livinng” and “The Laws of Trading.” Both look at psychology, process, and risk in different ways that can help you work out your own process. The next 18 months will be much harder than the last 18 - time to start learning.

Hi there, I had a question about 401k or Roth IRA. Should I put money into anyone of the two as an international student? I don’t see the point because I want to invest my money instead of saving it. Plus I don’t even have a permanent resident status so I don’t know if it makes sense saving it for retirement. On the other hand, the employer match and so on sounds good. So should I save it and take it out later or just invest it?
