Does anyone know anything about Dave Ramsey? It feels like a cult. My friends swear by him but I can’t figure out his logic. Like people that follow him insist you pay off a car loan at 1% interest before you invest anything.. or are completely anti credit card even if you use it for the points… what am I missing? It feels like the plan may be for lower income people who don’t manage money well but that may be completely ignorant of me?

My wife’s EB3 filing is current but she is stuck with me outside US without H1b stamp. Can i485 be filed while H1b employee is out of the US? Is biometric allowed via embassies in such case?
Hello (again!), my H1B petition was approved on Friday (yaaayyy!!!!) … I’m coming in from Canada on a Canadian passport so don’t need an embassy appt/visa stamp. Does anyone know what paperwork I need at the POE and how long it takes to get them? I’ll ask my attorney Monday but just impatient!
I am sure I am not the first one asking this question on this forum. I moved from Deloitte US to Deloitte Canada a few months ago due to visa issues. I want to move back to the US. I have a very strong and supportive network in the US. How easy is it to get L1A if I spend a year in Canada? How soon can I get a GC if I move back on L1A? Anything else to keep in mind?
Are we allowed to be able to be a board member for a non-profit or a startup while on H1B? If yes, any thoughts on how to look for such roles? Thank you!
Can someone explain very simply in their own words what the steps of going from H1B to GC is? I googled it myself but just confused about the forms associated with each step (I-140, I-485, etc.) and the approx time of each step. So far my firm has extended my H1B a month ago and while doing so asked me to briefly describe my job duties for the PERM labor certification application. Does that mean the GC process has been started? My h1b is till late 2024. What kind of timeline am I looking at?
Do you value wlb over money? Those who made the switch did you think about a $ figure you needed and worked to find a job that met that. Did you make sacrifices in the type of work?

Hello everyone, I am a Deloitte auditor and on a H-1b visa. My long term goal is to eventually go back to my home country. Should I still invest in Deloitte 401-k? I just want to know what the deductions are if and when I decide to go home and take the money. I don’t want to miss out on the match that Deloitte does but assessing if it’s worth it and if I will lose much of my money in taxes. Also I currently invest at home (fixed deposits) and get 6% returns. Thanks for any inputs in advance

Does anyone else absolutely hate talking to recruiters to turn down roles? I had two offers come in, had to turn one down. Spent 30 minutes with recruiter saying no thank you, then he put 30 minutes on my calendar with the hiring manager. Then a couple of people that I interviewed with texted and emailed me to see if I could talk. I’m trying to my gracious and thankful, but saying no just gives me so much anxiety because I’m a true conflict avoider

I have a final round interview for a business strategy manager role at a smaller company in a not very glamorous industry and I think I will likely get the job. The job is a great stepping stone and better pay but I’ve been at KPMG all my career so far (6 years) and I’m scared of making a move especially to a much less known company. Any thoughts or words of wisdom on this?
Can anyone here help me with my elevator pitch on what I currently do as a financial due diligence senior associate? Happy to DM you what I have written so far. This is different than my resume, trying to polish what I’d say in interviews (more conversational)
Ever had an attorney randomly pull food that they somehow squished in their shoe during long court days. One day, it was taking forever in federal court due to the COVID backlog. An attorney was sitting at a table across from where I was sitting. Kept noticing him reaching down like he was scratching his foot then would bring his hand to his mouth. Very strange. Court concluded and I saw him by his car taking off his shoe and pulling a squished baggy with half a sandwich out of it.
