How can I convince my wife to invest in the market? She wants to keep her earnings in the bank and if I bring it up she gets upset. We are planning on getting a house together next year and I want to position us for financial success.

Salaries are close but I do really well in the market (40% gains) and I really think I can help us fulfill our financial goals by handling all of this for her.

Anyone else at a firm so rooted in the past that you’re embarrassed explaining it to other attorneys? Example: We are 10 months into COVID and my firm still hasn’t decided on/implemented a video meeting platform (Zoom, Teams, etc.). So if I want to have a video meeting I have to ask the other party to use their video services. And it’s not at all a funding issue.
Don’t MBA programs most want the people who don’t need/want to go to business school (Private equity associates already making tons, successful startup founders, etc)? Seems like they don’t really want anyone who actually needs business school for their career.
