Oh man, how did you do this? I would love to do it for my nieces.

I just opened one for my son and bought $500 of a sp500 index fund on his 2nd birthday. Individual stocks are more fun. I simply chose a mutual fund because I don’t want to be forced to sell the stock if it later became restricted because of my job

I realized most of my anxiety or depression stems from a lack of career fulfillment. I recently started a new position and things were going great till they restructured my group and laid off a few on my team. Now I'm always looking over my shoulder and too concerned about screwing up. In the past, I have been laid off & I can't help reading too much in to every single email. My therapist made me aware of this but I'm looking for coping tools that someone in my situation has found useful. HELP!
