Watched "Kim's Convenience" on Netflix a few weeks ago. Story of a Canadian Korean family running a store in Toronto. Really enjoyed and had many parallels with how I grew up and our family's business


Ladies who use the steamer bags for cleaning pumps… what’s your process? You have to still clean with soap and water beforehand? The bag is so hot you need to use mittens? Trying to figure out the easiest way to clean in office without making a scene. Something about the wipes makes me feel like I’d still need to rinse it. Both of these seem to defeat the purpose of having less steps imo. And how do you dry them? I’m used to just soaking in a soapy tub, scrubbing, then hang drying at home. Sigh.

Hi! I just wanted to drop something here. I separated from my partner four months ago. Didn’t have that many friends to begin with. I joined Bumble BFF in hopes of making new friends in LA. I met up with someone for a long walk and ice cream. We ended up talking for nearly three hours. We had so much in common. Same names, birthdays four days apart, same age, and many other coincides. All this to say that starting a new life seemed very overwhelming four months ago and I thought that I would...

Has anyone written CAIA and found it to be useful? I'm not planning to move into portfolio management but would like to learn about alternative assets more. Company will pay for me to write it


Does anyone deal with constant disrespect in the workplace due to their age ? It’s crazy how secretaries are placed on a pedestal here because they are older and I guess have been here longer? But it’s becoming so draining. Beyond the petty things, I requested off for an event months ago and am now being told I may need to come in because the secretary requested off too( even though I told her about the day off months ago. For background there is an alleged rule that we cannot both be off)

Anybody know any good financial advisors? My husband and I are broke btw 😂😂😂


Invested about ~5k in a couple crypto ICOs that are now worth ~100k

I really want to use this money to pay off my ~70k in student loans. I know it’s not the ‘best’ financial choice, since my interest rate is 3.5%, but it would be a huge burden lifted and I would have an extra 1k/month in cash flow with no more payments

Just looking to hear thoughts on how much of a difference this would really make
Other somewhat relevant info - 27, 100K NW (not including crypto), and investing 50k/year
