So I'm a single dad, which I feel can be tough sometimes - doesn't fit with gender norms. It's the professional equivalent of not having baby changing stations in the mens room.

I've never done individual taxes (except my own) but I'm a fast learner. Would love advice on how to find clients, what to charge them, as well as any other advice.

What are the best burbs that offer the best [public] schools, best commute to NYC midtown, diversity in neighborhood, good things to do in the town within a few minutes drive or whatever, etc. We can prob spend about $1.5M for a new abode. Thoughts? Thanks!

Currently in house for a tech company, required to relocate by January. I was a COVID hire and was not required to relocate immediately. Husband is at a firm, has a higher salary and salary trajectory. I am trying to conceive and can’t commute back and forth because of this. I am debating if I should quit or stick it out. Obviously commuting is not sustainable long term. Also, how long does it usually take to get pregnant. This will be my first.
