My worst ones were my 4th, 8th and 9th years. It comes and goes. If you’re an associate I doubt its other than normal. When my team was getting shit on and I couldn’t stop it... I told them how unusual it was so there was no confusion

This has by far been the easiest busy season I’ve ever experienced

Any Christians out there actively figuring their 10% tithe into their financial planning? What percentage goes toward savings/investments? Also, if the question doesn’t apply to you, please don’t turn my inquiry into a philosophical debate about tithing or faith in general. My DMs are always open for those discussions. Just trying to get some advice about money management with tithing incorporated. Thank you!

Am I overthinking it? Gracias!
