Atlanta

New to Atlanta - my firm offers United Healthcare, Aetna, and Anthem HDHPs - any opinions on coverage in the city? Benefits and rates are the same so only thing to consider is in-network coverage.

If you’re healthy and don’t need a doctor much, always go for the HDHP - great way to save extra money tax free. There’s a bit of risk on the deductible, but again, if you are in good shape and rarely seek medical attention, it is the way to go. It’s definitely saved me money and I now have more than enough saved up to cover any deductible.

With an HDHP you can start an HSA which is a pre-tax savings account for medical expenses. The money is yours even if you leave the company.

Husband started a new job and I'm helping him set up his new 401k with Vanguard. Is this a good allocation (he's 44)? 50% VFIAX 6% VWIGX 40% VBTLX 4% VTABX I'm trying to keep it fairly simple. The other option is to do the 2040 Target Retirement fund but I've always been wary of those. Also, does it make sense to also hold ETFs that might overlap some of these retirement funds like VTI?

School starts virtual on Monday. My district waited until yesterday to give us our online courses and tell us the attendance expectations. It all seems impossible and entirely dependent on teachers, and I know that I will have to spend more time trying to record keep, than give 1-1 feedback or design engaging lessons. I feel sabotaged by my district, once again. Personally, I made tremendous strides in my mental health this summer and am heartbroken and disappointed to feel like I am crumbling.

I find myself questioning basic politeness I’ve learned since a child. Wondering what everyone else thinks. I work with an associate. She’s great. When she does good work or something I’ve asked her to do, I, of course, say “thank you!” I don’t really expect a response. She always replies “you’re welcome!” Or some variation. And for some reason, that’s awkward. Is it just me? I know in normal manners, that is the right response. Why does it sit funny?

Just 2 years out of college and I really want to create my own start up but don't know where/how to start. I figure I need a mentor but I don't even know where to get one. I feel completely disillusioned with consulting and having to deal with asinine politics. I see so many intelligent people wasting their potential in a system that rewards sycophancy and con artistry, I'm afraid to become one. Is this just consulting or am I waking up to the reality of how the professional world works?
