What are good travel destinations in mid-late February? Not looking to go skiing (but don’t mind cold) and would like something other than typical Florida.
I am a field marketer. I travel and cover 12 states. HQ is across the US on the east coast. My manager put a surprise calendar invite twice now to go to home office without consulting dates to see if we were available. I stood up and asked to be included on available dates and said I will attend virtually but asking me to be away for 4 additional full days away from my family without asking me is not OK. I already travel a lot and this boundary is super important to me. Am I right or wrong?
How many EA/AA/ABPs travel with their execs?
If so, what company? Do you ride biz? What do you do when you go with them?
For BCG, I've traveled 3 times but not a lot of our team has. Can ride biz since it's billed to case and mostly traveled for team event or dinner. One time, we even stayed at a 5 star hotel so that was a nice perk!

I just graduated in May with a masters in social work. I’m registered with the BBS as an ASW and I’m working towards becoming a LCSW. I was took a job in San Francisco for 73k however there’s a required pension that takes 9 percent of my pay (I didn’t know about this before taking the job) that essentially makes my pay 51k a year. Not sustainable in San Francisco as a parent. What are your thoughts? How much should a clinician/case manager in San Francisco, Bay Area, or California?

Going to Puerto Rico for 3 nights....flying in and out of San Juan and staying at St. Regis. Should I be staying somewhere else or split the night with location ? heard a lot about Vieques?
After being at a string of failed startups (one blew up after I left with no equity 😅) working on and paying for my degree all along the way, I have $40k in debt, $10k cash (after one year of saving post graduation), and make $120k total. I’m 40 next year and want to break the cycle, where the hell do I start? For reference, I want to travel and enjoy life but also want to have a solid savings. Probably my biggest issue is that I give zero f%*>s about money, it gives me very little value.
