Super newbie at investing and looking at life insurance (as a single, early 30s). My advisor is recommending whole life and talking about the investment aspects of it, but I’m reading that this doesn’t maximize my $$.

I vacationed on a luxury ($40M) yacht this past week. The owner is a family friend and owns a Hedge Fund. I realized that in order to generate real wealth you have to own your own business.

The American Dream of making it from the bottom to the top seems “almost” unattainable. Anyone else feel this way?
I can’t stop feeling so behind all the time. It seems like every one of my peers doesn’t have to worry about student loans, car insurance (paid by their parents still) etc. I keep thinking about how if I didn’t have all these bills I’d maybe have some savings that I could be proud of. Currently A2 making 65K in HOL and I feel like I’ll never be able to save up for a down payment or wedding or anything. Just feeling discouraged.

Me: “OMG my precious angel baby boo boos! I’m so happy to be reunited and I’m ready to LOVE ON YOU ALL WEEKEND!!!” Chloe: “How dare you disturb my solitude, human.”
Saw this BCG specific post and now I'm curious for the other big 3. MBB people- do you mind sharing what your WLB/weekends are like? I've always been under the impression that they're brutal.
