Have offers from Firm A (5k employees 1B revenue) & Firm B (2k employees 200M revenue) to come in as a senior manager and create/build a new, niche tax practice similar to what I played a pivotal role in building at a B4. My biggest issue at B4 has been the big firm BS (hard to get things approved, slow moving, high performers not rewarded appropriately).

We’d like to take our first travel holiday since covid with our son who will be right around 2 yo. Considering asking our babysitter to join so dad and I can actually enjoy ourselves some of the time. We both work very hard and don’t consider time with toddler to be relaxing!

How do we keep costs from spiraling out of control, Eg. 3 bedroom airbnb or two hotel rooms significantly more expensive/or just not as nice if it’s within range. TY!

Folks, Amex Platinum. Should I take 60k points with 150 dollar statement credit every year or 100k points and pay the whole 550?
