New one here wanting to start taking control of my finances. Cleared $100K in student loans by 28. Got a new role with annual salary of $145K now. Next year I’ll be getting married and we’ll be pulling jointly over 260K +. Restricting my Roth contribution. I currently have a 401K (48K balance) and a brokerage (26K balance). I just opened up a Roth although I think this year would be the only year I can contribute 6K into it. Where else should I spread my money long term?

Hi guys, I know this has probably been asked multiple times but need a fresh wind of advice. Shall I switch from pre tax to post tax/Roth contribution for reminder of the year? Not sure what’s the benefits are of each. If I anticipate my income to go up, shall I max Roth now?

Best way to tell my managing director and team that I'm leaving? We're all remote. I feel weird setting up some time on his calendar to "talk". But maybe that's the way to go?
Interested to hear how people learn project management. I have done PRINCE2 exam and read PMP materials, but I find these are too textbook theory based. Real life projects seem to be very different and a lot more complicated. I often do not know what needs to be done unless someone tells me. I believe you can learn these things on the job, but I am keen to expedite this with some books or courses. Are there any resources that are particularly helpful?
