Newbie question. I currently have VTSAX as my only investment. Is VOO essentially the same thing? Does it make sense to put money into both? Just looking to diversity a little beyond just VTSAX

They are very similarly VOO makes up about 80% of VTI/VTSAX . They will perform very similarly and I don’t think there is a need for both.

You are fine. VOO is an ETF that tracks the S&P 500. VTSAX is a mutual fund that tracks the entire US market. They overlap by around 80%. Performance wise they are essentially the same, but VTSAX is slightly more diversified since it includes mid/small cap. Adding VOO would not diversify you any more than you're at now. I don't really see a reason to own both.

Hi folks, question on DEI Context: my company at the csuite level is full of white men (and 1 female as CHRO). I am in the DEI group that was formed to give more guidance to leadership. They are open but struggle to justify DEI (because all white, how can they know!) How do I get them to understand that 1) representation is important, 2) white men from varying white dominant country =\= diverse, 3) their white struggle easy vs. minority , 4) diversity hiring will not make talent pool worse?

Last year, My girlfriend was making 80k while I was making 200k so I took her out to dinners and took care of the groceries etc. Basically made sure it’s an equitable relationship. She got a new job this year and is now making 210k (more than me) but still expects me to pay for all the dinners and groceries. I’ve already talked to her about this but just resulted in argument. Is there any coming back from this situation to make this equitable relationship or is break up the only option here?
