You had to go in on a Sunday?

Nope. Tomorrow! Ergo sleep tonight

I had to fly in today and leave home at 1:45. There goes Sunday! Why am I still doing this

There's a sliver lining at the end of the road. Everyone keeps telling me that, so I'm just going to believe them

Why can't you leave Sunday night and sleep at a hotel?

It's a 4+ hour flight and I lose an hour, there are no red eyes either from Dallas to east coast... And getting in at midnight just sucks... Your sleep is messed up... Restaurants/room service closed

And you do this every week ? Torture !!

Dam that's a long ass flight.

Anyone else mad about the bad rep VAs have bc of fees? When I bring a client onboard into a VA it’s bc of the quality investments (MFs) and track record of the available funds. I focus on 12 funds and adjust the mix of fixed/equity for each client based on their risk tolerance. A lot of my peers pick the boiler plate investment mix...I’d rather use my own, anyone else use their own over the boiler plate mixes?

Planning a one week trip to Yucatán. My first time in Mexico. Not a fan of big resorts. I’m an introvert, would love to find a quiet place to recharge. I looked at Palmul, which is between Cancun and Tulum. Does anyone know the area? I’d also love to drive around a bit. Maybe an overnight trip to Merida. Can I just get a rental car and explore? I’ll be traveling around alone. Female.
