My wife is getting an onsite opportunity for the US via internal transfer (L1 Visa). My company is not providing me that opportunity. So she wants me to travel with her. Can I go with her on her Visa? How can I go? What is the procedure to get a job in the US if I travel with her?
I’m 50 and would like to retire early at 55 so that I will be in good health to volunteer, take classes, travel, socialize with friends, and play tennis. Kids will be out of college and will have no debt. What annual after-tax income stream would you consider enough to safely retire early? I know it’s all based on personal lifestyle choices, but wanted to see if there’s a consensus.
I had a dream last night where I was walking thru LGA's new terminal to catch my flight with my slightly overstuffed suitcase and picked up a skim latte. Then I woke up alone in my NYC studio. 😢

Question to any/all airline pricing strategy nerds: I need to book a flight to PHX for a bachelor party on 3/6. Flight price went up ~$60 and not sure if there’s any chance it’ll drop down from now

I’ve noticed a lot of negativity in other bowls towards travel and travelers, calling it not a real hobby or just rich flexing. How do you guys handle it? Is it worth it to try to explain what I enjoy about travel and what it means to me?

Fellow Consultants, just gone share this because someone shared it with me. There’s an app called Duet - allows you to use your iPad as a second monitor. Stop traveling with those second monitor screens from Amazon. 😂 Ipad is lighter and you can watch Netflix while traveling. Travel smarter.

Any recs for a good home office chair that is comfortable but also nice looking/stylish? It’s going to be out visible in my living room, and I’d like to use the chair as extra seating when having guests over.

A 5% raise in light of 1) calling it a “substantial” improvement on last year 2) inflation running above 9% 3) peers at other consultancies getting 10-15% raises in non-promo years is extremely disappointing

What are you 🐟 upto today?
I'm an affiliate consultant and contractor for two different firms (one B4,one local); thinking of just doing my own thing vs accepting an offer outright though I haven't been consulting that long at all. Have plenty of technical experience and some recent results from work with startups during covid though, ideally, I'd like to work with bigger companies to maintain a higher bill rate.
Anyone do this and have a positive experience? Negative experience? Advice? Things to consider?
