A few months ago (pre-covid) I had PTO scheduled on a Friday before my brother’s wedding that Saturday. Client called a last minute onsite mtg for Friday morning so I did a half day PTO instead of a full day.

If you point a friend in the direction of information related to the company you’re supporting that is public knowledge (news articles and such) without disclosing that they’re your client and that friend makes an investment decisions based on that piece of publicly available information, is that insider trading? Or is the entire premise of insider trading that the information is not public?
Someone from another department tried to brief my teams in on their project with zero context, info, or details for them to put together a creative response. I told them to supply that information first and that they could brief the team once they do and that I'd be happy to help.

How do I approach this / what do I say?

Backdoor Roth now, or gamble on '22 or '23 at lower tax bracket?
Trad. IRAs, after-tax: $29,000
Trad. IRA, pre-tax: $213,000 (401k rollover)
Tax brackets: As-is | convert $213k to Roth:
'21: 24% | 35%
'22: 22% | 24%
