Do you have a case management software in place that makes your job easier? Work life balance is possible, having the right tools/ processes in place are key.

Feel silly reaching out here but would love some perspective. I want to understand how much cash to keep. Currently have $305k in a Marcus account that’s earning nothing. It’s split between emergency and longer term savings. I’ve been thinking about opening a Marcus robo advisor brokerage to put some in to get better returns than the 0.05% HYSA. Any help would be great.

Currently a few weeks left on parental leave and have had a potential opportunity come up with a smaller firm that I think makes more sense for my career goals.

Go back to my current firm for a couple weeks and then give notice? I certainly don’t want to burn bridges. How would you feel on the other side?
