If someone uses the terms “strongly encourage”, “urge”, or “advise” to get me to do something, I will not. I might consider a “recommend” with a strong, but not pushy, case. Why do these words make me rebel? 😂
Need help. I’ve done some research but still feeling a little lost. I just left my company and I have 75k in my 401k. 20k traditional, 55k Roth. Planning on rolling over the 55k Roth into my Roth IRA, and unsure about what to do with my 20k traditional 401k balance. I am with fidelity, my new company is with voya. Any advice and explanation will be much appreciated please!
Help! What card to put my hotel stay on for most value back? Was planning to pay for hotel on Amex gold but I noticed it’s just $1:1 point. I got the Delta Amex earlier this year but that is also 1:1. Hotel stay is next week & should be $2500 before any incidentals. If I put the hotel stay on my Gap MC (promo now until 9/30) it would be 5x per dollar =$125 reward. I also have Saks MC and Nordies Visa but am unclear what their points values are outside of stores rn.

Can someone tell me if it is really better in audit at a small firm versus Big Four?

I thought i wanted to switch out of public accounting all together but am still unsure (i honestly hate accounting would love to be doing any other job)
