Thoughts on the value of a part time/online masters in analytics or computer science?

I think it can potentially help you communicate with junior staff with analytics backgrounds. I have a STEM background but currently am on the project management team on a large project and frequently get called in to bridge the gap between the analysis and the client or more senior managers w/o STEM backgrounds.

I don't think it will help you get a raise/promo the way an MBA can but it never hurts to learn and can expand the types of projects you can get staffed on.

From a career perspective, if you're senior-2 and above, it really won't matter. Unless you want to change a career track.
From a skill set perspective, learning newer things always helps.

Those are also two pretty different degrees. I imagine the analytics degree would be more immediately useful

If someone else is paying go for it!

Thoughts on potential business ideas or investment opportunities where I can live the life I deserve now and not in retirement? I’m always trying to think of potential business ideas and come up with nothing. As far as interests, it doesn’t matter what it is. As long as it makes money I’m interested.

Any tips on how you all stay motivated?

I’ve been really consistent for about 7 weeks now, exercising and eating better. I’ve lost about 17lbs, but have another 70lbs to go and was feeling pretty demotivated this morning. I did make it to the gym and told myself I just needed to do a light 30 mins of cardio, which turned into 50 mins once I was actually there. But feel like I’m losing some of the motivation / push I had the first 6 weeks.

At how much money invested would it be smart to hire a financial advisor or a managed portfolio? 401k is managed by fidelity and has around 32k and my individual account for stocks is at $14k and hope to grow that one fast. I’m concerned I may end up losing too much from bad decisions or miss out because from not buying correctly. I usually research a companies financials, outlook, and some analyst papers but other than that it’s more of a gut decision to buy or sell.
