PMP Certified?

like

No, still in the research process of what is needed to apply for a PMP certification.

like

PMP certification is against experience hours. So if you don't have enough, another avenue might be a qualification in something like PRINCE2 or Scrum Master until you can get your PMP.

like

I was reading about the CAPM certification, as it is more entry level. Will look into PRINCE2 and Scrum Master too! Thank you!

like

PRINCE2 has two parts, foundation and practitioner. Foundation is your more entry level stuff and practitioner is a bit further along but you can get in classroom courses if that helps. Good luck!

Is there really any benefit to a 529 account? Investments are limited, the only tax benefit is state taxes, and your access is limited to qualified expenses. Why shouldn’t I just invest that money in a CMA account for my kids, have it actively managed and let it grown with them. Yes I’ll pay taxes on dividends and withdrawals, but seems like the savings are marginal, and potentially cancelled out when you factor in performance. Im feeling a bit of buyers remorse.

Consulting probably isn’t for me. I think I’m good at the actual delivery of work but I just cannot stand that fact that some people take minor, non-client things so seriously. People need to chill tf out in this industry.
