Incoming 1st yr BigLaw associate (V50 in a big city). I am curious if there are networking benefits to having expensive work clothes/accessories. I went to school on scholarship so I don’t have tons of debt, but my parents aren’t rich so much of the culture is foreign to me. I have hobbies I would rather spend my discretionary income on. But if having a Rolex or wearing Brooks Brothers suits would improve my standing w partners or if dressing cheaper would hurt, then I’d suck it up. Pls advise

Hey mummas, I'm struggling with how I feel about my team at work. None of them, including my manager, have children and they just don't get it. I'm pregnant with my third and my manager has never once asked me how I'm doing, only ever refers to it in terms of me 'leaving' for maternity leave so he'll be a resource down. Never once asked how I'm coping with juggling wfh & full time caring for my children through covid, and icing on the cake my baby just recently.. (continued in comment)
Starting to learn more about FIRE and getting really excited about it. When they say save 50% of monthly income, is that including future savings like 401k and HSA? How do you save 50% when living in a HCOL city? My rent alone eats up like 35%. I also have student loans and car loans (which I got before learning about FIRE and finances). Thanks for all the insights!
Doing track and trading now. Partner does not want to provide any information related to bank account and says that’s an invasion of privacy and refuses to provide me with the info. What can I do in this case ? I don’t have access to 401k info or anything.
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

Started my first job out of undergrad: base salary 105k. Grew up extremely privileged and have no debts of my own, but also no money of my own and I am completely financially illiterate. Any kind souls willing to help guide me on what I should be doing with all this money now? My company offers a 3% 401k match which I am maxing. Right now I’ve got a fat lump sum just sitting and wasting in savings.

I found 10k per night in burbs of Chicago? 3 - would any cheap Marriott let me run this scam remotely? (Ie call Abilene Texas, check me in without my showing up)
How have you guys celebrated career milestones? I told myself when I made manager, I'd finally treat myself and buy my first "big girl" bag. I feel like a big baby, but when I saw comp numbers this year, I cried. I haven't been in the mood to celebrate, but now trying to think of alternatives that might be easier on the wallet.
