Is it worth driving 1hour+ each way for free childcare twice per week? We are having trouble finding a quality nanny for two days (we have a great nanny on other two days). Rather than continuing to pay big $$$ for inconsistent and unreliable care, it thinking of driving to my dads house to let him take the kids while I work from his home office. May be problematic if Both me and my husband are needed in the office. Do you think it’s a good idea? Will save me $260 per day / $520 per week

Folks, any advice on applying for jobs at a previous client? As a firm we have great relationships with the senior client leadership and I am afraid that the GEP and my RL will eventually find out when I submit my job application.

Hey everyone! Recent transplant (26 F) who moved here during Covid (family reasons) so still not quite familiar with the areas. I’m currently living in Brentwood but looking to move. I’m considering Marina Del Rey as I want to be a bit closer to the office (in Venice) and the airport for when things open back up/travel resumes. I tried searching here but didn’t see a lot - what is the reputation of Mar Vista (and if possible - how is that different than Brentwood?). All opinions welcome! 🙂

In this new year, I would like to get better at investing. I am embarrassed to say that all I have done is max out my 401K every year. And while I do have savings, its sitting in a bank account unused and just making the bank money. A big part is the lack of knowledge I have on the subject. I just don't know where to start, any suggestions on good how to books for beginners? What daily news sections should I be reading?
