When does it become smart to switch to Roth investments? For 20 years I've gone with trad IRAs and 401(k)s; I wasn't a high earner and reasoned I could use the tax benefits and would (hopefully) end my working life with plenty of money in the bank to take the tax loss then. I'm now in early middle age making low six figures--is now the time or do I keep waiting? I know if I take required withdrawals on a trad while I'm still working I could be hit hard, but when I retire I expect to..retire.
For those who have gotten degrees and certifications, how do you find the time to study with kids? Mine are not in school yet and don’t go to daycare. Hubby doesn’t work from home and we don’t have anyone to help with childcare either. I’m already working late hours and waking up early to get work done.

Hi all. I need some urgent advice. My F1 visa is ending on May 18, my EAD is expiring on June 30th and I am currently stuck in India. I have two questions. 1. Can I enroll into a CPT program while I am in India? 2. Can I get a F1 visa restamp/extension based on the CPT? I have heard F1 visa requests for CPT are usually denied. Thank you!
I am clear-eyed and ready. I am filled with vigor and determination. I have had my mettle tested and have overcome challenge after challenge. I have studied my materials and have trained my mind stronger than ever. I carry conviction in my heart and a smile on my face. Yes, I am prepared to get rejected by MBB once again.
Highlights of my day were making my husband's lunch and telling both of my staff to skip work (one for CPA exam, one for illness). #winning
Does 401k count as savings?
After 6mo of successful WFH protocol/productivity during this pandemic, Havas Edge Carlsbad had their agency deemed “essential workers” w/ two days back to work notice, no exceptions. Edge has already had a Covid case and SD county is back to high-risk “purple”. Protocols for testing/return to work were unintelligible at best , misleading at worst. Havas should be appalled given their national stance on safety of workers and embrace of teleworking as the future.
Are firms done with their performance-based separations and layoffs yet? I have been holding my breath because I’m unassigned from now through the end of the year.
I shop at BR and my client counterpart Shops at BR clearly. Some days we will have on the same shirt.....awkward.
Did anyone recently get Dropbox eligibility/interview waiver in India? I'm getting the waiver which I didn't expect because my last stamping was not in India. Does anyone know if they removed this rule? It wasn't even asked in the questionnaire leading to the waiver message.
Hello Fishes, Can you please share your best salary negotiation tips? In India, it’s such a common norm to pay on current even if you are grossly underpaid. Thanks.
Art director presents idea we were both tasked to do. The entire concept is mostly my idea, and has a key element that she did not like and almost refused to add. I basically pushed her to add it. It’s that part that the client actually loved, and when the meeting ended, everyone thanked her and congratulated her, and she said “thanks”without giving me a mention. Even our cd and account folks. Should i let it go?
￼I am currently unemployed but I am very curious about everyone’s company signature having she/her or he/him or they displayed. Are companies forcing people to write the pronouns you need to choose? I honestly never understood why somebody that wasn’t in the LGBTQ community would ￼specify￼￼, and I know people are doing it to show support but if I started working again I don’t think I would want to put that in my signature. It seems political. What are your thoughts? ￼
