I’m 36, earn 100k and I work maybe 30 hours a week, and I’m a shining star. It allows me to enjoy life without stress. I can linger around and see myself (slowly) climbing the ladder. But part of me wants to put in hard work and grow a lot in my career and earn more for a stable financial future, but it means I’ve got to work more and stress more and I’m worried I won’t get time to relax and enjoy my life as before. But also I’m worried I’ll slack off. Anyone going through this? Would I regret?
How frequently is a PE investor realizing a full fund return? I get that it’s hard with timing. But let’s say it’s a $750m fund. Returns 3x MOIC. $2,250M. 20% is $450M. You’re an MD with 2% of the carry pool earning $9M. How often is that $9M paying out? Would depend on a typical rate of capital deployment and fundraising.. let’s say you raise a fund every other year. Average investment is 3-4 years. If you invested the whole fund in 1-2 years. And do this with over 10 years, that’s $45M?

I am not from USA and English isn’t my first language so trying to understand is my nanny being out of line here. Our nanny has been extremely defensive to any feedback and has comments to an extend she compares everything with me and hubs. Few examples - you eat healthy, I am really jealous what money can buy. Why are you breastfeeding your kid I formula fed my son and let him be independent do you think he is not okay ? (For spending hours on call with LC). Additional screenshots
Hey Everyone - I want to put aside 10K USD for my baby sister to give to her when she heads off to college...she's 1 years old, much much younger than I (23), so can assume a 18-20 year investment maturity period. I felt college specific tax funds were a bit too restrictive - e.g. want her to be able to use the cash as she needs (college or just life), even if it's left unliquidated for additional growth. Any ideas here on potential ways to invest it? Any tax advantaged plans you recommend?
We are hiring staff/managers (not to manage their own book). It’s been hard finding people who are Registered, driven, detail oriented, etc. Besides LinkedIn, where else can we look?
