I ordered a Tesla model 3 SR in April and I am able to take delivery this weekend, however I’m now unsure of whether it’s the right move financially. I have a lease on a 2020 BMW X3 that will end next month and was wondering if I should just buy that out and drive it for a few years. If it makes a difference I’m in SoCal so gas is $$$, but no EV charging in my apartment.

Tesla: $830/month + charging and insurance
BMW: $600/m + $150 gas + maint/insurance

Any thoughts? Is the Tesla worth it?


My firm is forcing everyone to go back to the office this month. While I don’t mind being in the office, I’m an Asian woman and terrified of taking the subway given all the recent anti-Asian incidents. Is it reasonable to ask for some sort of transportation reimbursement? An Uber is around $40 which is insane, but I guess there’s a lot of demand since others are in the same boat.

For context, I’m a senior associate at a V50 in NYC.


Do any of you know of insurance companies that hire independent agents? I’m looking to branch off and don’t know where to start. Any advice would be appreciated.

My mental health is really struggling. I don’t have many friends, work in a very small office no one talks to me. No communication very stale work. My bf(who I love with) is supportive but I feel guilty complaining all the time. Want to leave my job but want to wait until I get cpa (only 1 down). Does anyone have any tips? I feel depressed and anxious all the time but really can’t afford therapy or anything medical. Just looking for things I can do on my own.


Hi experts - could use advice on contributing to 401K. What’s the benefit of tax deferred investment if you plan on holding long term? My thought process is this: I’m earning 100K gross and by retirement years, I want to be able to withdraw at 200K level income. Wouldn’t that put me in a higher tax bracket than I am currently? So aside from reaping the benefits of the 401K match my company provides, what’s the benefit of contributing more? Seems like I will just be paying higher taxes later.


Hey everyone, I was recently laid off.. on November 3 actually. It’s a “temporary layoff” and I’m one of the 4 who got laid off. My return date is February 1st. Would you wait, and collect employment insurance (Canada) or start looking for a new job??

How much should I charge a friend to watch 4 dogs at their home over Christmas weekend (2 nights)? The dogs don't have any special needs or medications.

I want to start charging people for my services but also want to be reasonable since this is a friend and don't plan to charge a holiday fee. We live in St. Louis. Would $40 per day/night be reasonable?

Hey ladies, i have recently moved to Toronto and my background is R&D in a consumer goods industry. I had an excellent growing career in my field and I loved my job. In Toronto though, during my job hunt, I find very few jobs in the field and I'm starting to think now if moving to Toronto was a great idea after all.
It's such a niche field, there aren't many openings to begin with. I'm getting very demotivated. I'd love to hear your success stories! :(
