Thoughts on Indexed Universal Life Insurance as an investment vehicle? I hear the pros and cons from the sellers of this, whom I understand gain heavy commissions. But wanted to get thoughts from investors and if this isn't a good vehicle, what alternative investment vehicles do you suggest (outside of stocks, Roth, 401k, and real estate)? Looking to diversify my portfolio. I'm 43, married, income 600k combined, and we have 2 properties worth 3m and investment accounts worth ~2-3m. Thanks!

My employer was acquired yesterday and I got word that my termination is effective today, but I have a meeting with someone from the acquiring company’s HR today to review separation documentation and discuss a potential consulting agreement. Any insight on what to expect? Is there typically any room for negotiation in these situations? When I hear consulting, I think of reduced benefits, mainly lack of health insurance which wouldn’t be ideal.

I lost my last job a few weeks before Christmas last year and it took me a long while to find a new one. Ultimately I ended up moving to a new city for a job I was really excited about.
