There are condos in JC and brooklyn for 400k which doesn’t seem too bad but dont know if I’m being way unrealistic. I’d appreciate any advice!

We are in the process of consolidating accounts for a new client and moving them over to Charles Schwab where we custody - all straight forward stuff. The client has an old 401k from a previous employer and filled out the paperwork with that 401k to roll it to Schwab. So about $470k hit her Schwab account last week. And then exactly 7 days later, another $460k hits again. Both from the 401k custodian. But her account was only $470k. I think they messed up royally. Now what???

About to be 31 and I’ve already been in consulting for about 10 years. I was at a red light next to an older gentleman who was in a modest car and felt oddly curious about his life. All of these strange scenarios popped into my head which lead me to really think. I realistically have another 30+ years left of this corporate nonsense and I know Time is going to fly by. How do we slow down? How do we find what we are passionate about? How do we responsibly avoid responsibility?
