I think it's kind of cool when teams are diverse. Currently on a team with a female partner and the rest of the team members are black, gay, Asian, and Hispanic including myself. We have great dinner conversations and talk about our different backgrounds. We are all learning so much from each other, it's great. And no, it's not about promoting people because they are a minority, its about doing the work and giving it's about the fact that 50 years ago we wouldn't have a team like this.

Anyone who purchased a 2nd primary residence and turned the 1st into a rental, how much savings/income did you have relative to your mortgages?

I’m looking to rent out my current residence and purchase another to live in & rent. Someone advised I not purchase a second place until I can afford to fully cover both mortgages. Makes sense in theory but who actually does this in practice? Wouldn’t a few months savings if I’m out a renter be more realistic?

New to this bowl- just adopted a rescue from Puerto Rico a month ago, and it’s been the most amazing experience but also so hard because she got very sick, had to be hospitalized. Since we got her she’s had an ear infection, giardia, hookworm, and kennel cough. She was throwing up so much (over 40 times) which is why I had to bring her to the hospital. All better now, thankfully. We love her. But, of course this all happened before the waiting period was over for my dogs insurance… so ….
