Please critique my annual budget. Family of four in the Bay Area. HHI: 850k Income tax: 300k Daycare: 50k Housing: 45k (mortgage + property tax + insurance) Grocery / restaurants: 20k Charity: 15k Random Amazon spending: 10k Car + gas + insurance: 10k Medical: 5k House cleaner / landscaper: 5k Utilities: 3k Retirement savings: 135k (maxing out everything) Remaining for taxable savings: 250k Don’t do enough travel but that is largely due to COVID. Saving 45% of gross is probably too much?

I'm a male with pierced ears that's been working at Accenture Interactive these past few years. I've been wearing transparent studs at work (which are less noticeable but still pretty apparent) to prevent my piercing from growing back in at work. I'm lateraling to MBB now where I'm assuming the rates are higher, clients are more senior, and tone a bit more serious. Would it be a career limiting move to keep my piercings?

How have people found financial advisors they like? What do you look for? I inherited a 401k and investment account & with that a financial advisor (I kept the same person managing the account). I’ll have add’l money coming in over the next few months as probate wraps up and I’d really like to find someone longterm. I’m 30; before this I didn’t have my own financial advisor, so I’m a little bit of a newbie. Sorry if this has been asked already. Trying to be responsible with my loved one’s money.

Interested in hearing anyone’s thoughts or experiences moving to a new market recently (since everything has gone remote). Currently an associate making cravath comp in a large city (not new DPW scale yet) but have been trying to move to a different market to be closer to family. New market is on the low range of compensation, but I’d continue to work with other attorneys in large metro areas. It seems like some firms are nationalizing comp. Any successful negotiations?
