My 401k

What do I put my $ in now

Just invest in regular stocks besides your 401k Safe up for a downpayment on some rental properties, buy gold, just put your money towards stuff you are educated on and don‘t gamble on stuff you don‘t know anything about

Gold?!

what % is that?

A couple years ago, I was asked to cover a female coworkers job duties while she was out on maternity leave for 6 months. I covered 90% of her work with our client and was drowning. They specifically gave it to me as the only other woman on the team and she was my same level. She came back from mat leave and got promoted, we were same level, same YOE. Everyone else in our group was promoted who was eligible. How would you have dealt with this? I was devastated. Just now getting over it.

401k advice requested - 25 years old, live in nyc, make 125k. I’ve always maxed my 401k to 19500 with a split of regular and roth. Always do the 6k of Roth IRA too. New firm has no matching policy. I understand the benefits of tax so maxing it is beneficial, however, I’m almost breaking even each month. Is it smart to slow the contributions, keep investing myself so I will have money for a down payment down the road? Don’t want to pull on my 401k if not needed

Should I open an IRA Roth account? Need suggestion on better allocation. Im mid 20s, making 80K pre-tax. My allocation is as followed: 1) 401k account has only $21K. 5% in Roth and 3% in pre-tax, no IRA account yet. My company matches 100% up til 3%, and 50% til 5%. 2) 85K in stocks, including both base and profits 3) 50K in real estate 4) 25K emergency funds. No debt. Should I open an IRA roth account and max it out? Not sure what my goal is. Im 40% high risk high reward, 60% stability.

I know this topic does not get talked about much but will eventually impact almost all of us so here goes. I am thinking of retiring (early) and would love recommendations for countries that I can retire to that. Primary factors would be cost if living, safety, warm climate, good health care system, (preferably) close to the US - not a requirement, stable government and laws, diversity in landscape (beach, rivers, mountains). Definitely not super rich so thinking of 5k a month in expenses.
