Is there a time when people generally “start” work remotely? Back when I was a summer before the pandemic, I commonly saw people go in between 9-10 am but I didn’t know what the norm is now that we are remote. I see emails at 8 am and I’m not sure if I’m expected to respond then or not. Also if you are on a deal where some of the members are in NY and you’re in the Midwest, are you expected to go by their times and be on when they are on?

Fishies, has anyone set up a taxable investment account dedicated to taking care of their parents’ after life expenses? My parents don’t have much savings and I think it will be up to me and my sibling to fund the costs.

I’m also open to other suggestions and any general advice on taking care of parent
