Small regional B/D. Largely focused on military vets. If you have affiliation or connection with the armed services and it’s benefits you can be a meaningful resource to that particular demographic. Otherwise it does not offer as many services the bigger full service firm offers.

This is my first time participating in a 403b and the fees are ungodly and the market has been anything but sexi. I’ve moved all future contributions into the money market fund with a guaranteed 1.70 return until 12-31-2022. The funds are pretty generic life cycle funds etc. How should treat this thing?10% Roth contributions and employer match 6%.

I’m a creative in Europe. My creative output has been consistent and I have been lucky enough to have won a bunch of awards at the big shows. All is well. But somehow I keep on feeling the urge to relocate to the USA to work on a bigger scale, and to feel the thrill of a new challenge. I have some opportunities over there, actually. Are there any Europeans working in the USA right now? In which way is it different? Do you make less stuff? Which cities are recommended? Any advice would be great.

Why is it that when we’re sick, we go to a doctor, when we are in legal trouble, we turn to a lawyer, when we need help building a house, we turn to advice from an architect, but when it comes to deen we think we are the experts and not the scholars who’ve spent their life studying theology and Islam. Such hypocrisy
