I’m getting beaten down here. I have 10 years consulting experience, 7 at health plans, 5 in strategy, and 3 as a manager. I know my industry, function, and story. What am I missing?

But i am anxious about dumping it all into the market right now when everything is inflated. So trying to figure out how to break it up so i DCA with a wide enough spread but also don’t leave too much sitting in cash for too long. Was thinking of just parking it in VTSAX.
