I want to become debt free. We have a mortgage, student loans, kid in daycare and have limited our discretionary spending, so that's helped. Firm won't allow other sources of income. Suggestions?

Have you been seeing any creativity lately around gender inequity, child abuse, LGBTQ, PETA, guns rights, or other cause related marketing? Why not? Because none of them are trending at the moment?
I’m in second trimester. I just came from my grandfather’s funeral, outside. My aunt was around her 2 siblings last week that had Covid and she hasn’t been vaxed. She hugged me and mom (4 weeks from her last chemo session) and only told us about her siblings after. I’m so mad. I guess I’m just venting but the potential complications for the baby, me, and my mom make me worry. Any comforting words?
I know I posted 3 wks ago about house #4. But a week later I got the inspection report & it was a no go. Lesson learned. But this house I AM buying. I close in about 2 wks. 1st column: The #s w/current tenant till June. We won't renew the lease. Instead we'll rehab the inside; ~$7k, then raise the rent to match the market. Using coulmn #2, total monthly cashflow of all homes is $1,186mo. Initial goal is $20.5K/$1,708 mo. Almost there! If we can rent it for $1.1Kmo (column 3)...AWESOME!
“My child is 24 months” or “My child is 2 years old”? Pet peeve of mine to hear any “x months” after 11.
Real talk 2: if you decide to have children, it’s entirely possible you will not like the child at first (or at various points). It’s a huge decision, and having complex feelings about the matter is completely valid
WFH with a kid is making me less productive, so I end up working 30% longer hours to make up for it. But the longer I work, I get diminishing returns in productivity, so I have to work longer still. At this point, my mental stamina is just worn out. How do I fix this?
Any tips to new freelancers? Lessons learned ? Or experience with Upwork ? Trying my hand at it and already have leads…
People - really struggling with this - was supposed to move to bay area for husband’s tech job. I can work remotely. But with COVID I’m not sure if we should make the move. We feel the world will move to a remote/ WFH mode. We want to buy a house and settle down before our kid arrives. Should we move to a cheaper city like Phoenix so we have a big house for cheap and 2 home offices. Am I missing anything?
Anyone own a franchise? What’s your experience, how did you get started and how much did you invest and any lessons learned?
I’m home alone with 2.5 year old and 5 week old while on maternity leave. Dealing with PPD and generally been very unwell. 5 week old has now slept for 7 consecutive hours at night TWICE. It’s like a light at the end of the tunnel!!!!
Got an email “reminder” that weekly lesson plans are due Monday morning. I’m tired. I want to reply “no” because I don’t have time to make detailed lesson plans on their template...for lessons that I won’t follow...for a curriculum they haven’t given me yet....But I should probably just ignore it until I’m less tired so I don’t let my mouth get me in trouble. Do y’all turn in lesson plans?

Less than a year of valuation experience but got offered valuation role in a REIT firm with 38% increase (HCOL to higher HCOL (SF)). I’m worry about being too focused in REIT/ operations real estate niche area that exit opportunities might be difficult. Thoughts?
