Look at job descriptions for every posting at Fintech companies. You might be surprised at what skills they are seeking that jump out at you that would translate from what you have experience in. Managing people, analysis, training, etc. can all be useful skills in fintech. I absolutely love working for Toast, Inc. and one of the things I love is the culture and the fact that they take the time to really get to know the whole person when it comes to applicants for new "rolls".

Thank you! I am going to take a look at open roles at Toast. Appreciate the advice!

Find jobs that are entry level like analyst or other similar roles that are at a company that does what you are an expert in (lending in this example). You will have a hard time going from Branch manager at a bank to Stripe or PayPal or another bit FinTech player

Thanks for the response! I am currently teaching myself python and sql, and taking the Google Analytics Certificate course. I'm hoping I can learn enough of the tech side to get in as an analyst.

How do you deal w a toxic director? A partner reached out after hearing from someone else on the project that I was getting overworked + put in awkward situations. He knows I talked to him and who the other person is too. Essentially the partner only talked to me bc that team member is moving to another team + if I also leave, then it will make them look bad since the director has been reported before I can’t get out and he’s gaslighting me in meetings but I have my receipts so I push back.

I see a lot of people post about long term relationships. My wife and I are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary today. We've been poor, house poor, poor again, middle class, upper middle class and now well to do. We've had many of the problems you would expect over time, multiple careers, lived in 8 states, and raised two children. It is hard, wonderful, worthwhile and doable. I hope everyone here gets as lucky as we have been.

I'm starting to make more money than my husband and I resent it. He works hard, just not as hard as we do in consulting. Any tips for getting over this toxic mindset?

Just cut my cable. Feel great but still want to watch my local NBA team. Thinking of doing DirectTV now + Apple TV. Anyone done something similar? Is Apple TV worth it?
