New to the US and I'm about to start my first job. I'll be having a 401K through work

How does 401K work? How do I grow my money in 401k

Is there a specific bowl for financial guidance?

Put your money in, forget about it until you retire

Pretty much. You have to set up what you are investing into from the get go, what percentage of the contributions go to what...So the money will be taken from your paychecks and invested automatically.

Can anyone speak to using Turo to rent a second vehicle? I live in Portland OR. Assuming that’s a decent market?

Not trying to get a full blown car rental business off the ground. Anyone had success passively renting a second vehicle in a market this size?

SO beyond frustrated with my work environment I think it may be time to leave for good. I returned from maternity leave after 4 years of working at my very old-school, boys club, nepotism-friendly company. The number of remarks I got on my appearance, my pregnancy and etc was a little annoying before I left, but since I've come back it's been nothing but comments on how they can't believe I'm leaving my husband home with the baby etc. Sorry for the long post just needed to vent!!
