Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)
First person in my family to have a corporate job so I don’t have anyone to ask these questions. I’m wondering how much I should put into my Roth 401K? I currently have it set for 18% of my monthly paycheck. Is this enough? I’m 23 years old, first year on the job. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you
Hi Fellow Fishes, It is very important to take some time off every now and then. If you can take at least a week off every 2 months, and use that to get some office work done, trust me it will change your life...
Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?
Any recommendations for good Personal Finance help books (investing, 401k, passive income) for beginners? Thank you in advance!!

Taking some time off. Need some book recommendations. Some light interesting non-fiction. No self help or management books. Just interesting topics that won’t make me think about work.
New to this so any guidance is appreciated. Currently have my Roth 401k, Roth IRA, and HSA all through fidelity. 401k is invested my target retirement year fund. Both ira and hsa are fully in FXAIX, Fidelity’s 500 index fund. Is this fine? Obviously I know investing and saving is good but still learning the ins and outs

I have a VUL with cash value I've decided I no longer need the life insurance associated with this policy. Is there a way to get access to the cash value without owing taxes? If no, how will it be taxed and how to determine how much gain/tax? I paid maybe $20k into this policy many years ago. Since then it has increased in value and also paid the premiums from the cash value. Today it shows $70k cash value. TIA

Have anyone done contracting negotiations before? I've interviewed for co A & B and co A extended an offer today. The offer does not meet my current salary.

I have 2 yrs of contracting HR exp from fortunate 500 co’s & OMW to get my SHRM-CP. Appreciate your advice in advance.
