...From my vantage point, strategized with him on landing relevant roles, & offered encouragement. Aside from an obvious interest in the healthcare industry, he’s geographically targeting ATL & DC. Referred him at Accenture [just left there last month] & at KPMG. Anyone at MBB or elsewhere willing do likewise? If so, please message me & I’ll connect him to you. Let’s be who we needed. Have a blessed one.

Interested in your opinions. Last year I took a government job. Before I was working as an independent consultant and netting more - obviously without pension and benefits though. (Lost work due to pandemic.) With extra medical expenses this year (outside of government insurance) I realize I’m simply not making enough money to do what I want and need to to (medical + travel + investing). Everyone tells me to stay for security and WLB.

Hi all, one of my grandparents is about to pass. After taxes, extensive medical bills, etc my share is about $50k. Nothing life changing but a pretty substantial amount of money to me. I’m 26 and have about $100k in my 401(k), no Roth IRA (yet).

Any ideas or thoughts about what I should do with this $50k? I’d like to keep some of it liquid but I definitely want to have most of it invested. Would love some insights as I’m pretty naive when it comes to investing. Thank you in advance.

So sick of my PM pushing back on me and having this attitude that the clients are evil and trying to ruin our lives. I spend more time arguing with her than we do actually routing and pushing things forward. While she’s whining, I’m pushing the team. She told me the deadline wasn’t possible. Well, we did it, without one late night. She treats me like a child and acts like I don’t have credibility just because I’m young and she’s a more mature director. Helpppp how do I facilitate this

Perspective check:

I'm an SA, and my fiance is finishing up her residency and loves the medical field. I make good money and have a house but I feel like the relationship and the obligations (house, family) are anchors and holding me back from living my life. I want to sell and live on the road, traveling and being free.

I love my fiance and my family but I just want to quit everything and just hit the road.

Am I being dumb?
