Spend a few hours reading these or others on basics of investing. The way your question is asked concerns me, tbh. Don’t listen to people on these bowls necessarily.

To answer your question the responder needs to know your time horizon, risk tolerance, where you’re located, existing retirement accounts, emergency cash fund, current and expected compensation.

IA is investment advisor; Naples Wealth Planning is a great option, lower fees than a fund and they cover investment fees while trading/holding.. dm me if you want more info!

I finally got diagnosed with ADD, inattentive type, at 28 years old. I’ve known I had depression and anxiety for years, but the symptoms and treatment never added up. It took WFH in a pandemic to realize maybe I had ADD, and still months of being dismissed and made to feel like I was crazy before I found a doctor to administer the MMPI. I feel validated, finally, but I can’t help feeling grief too over so much lost potential and unnecessary failure, especially in law school and my career.
