Guys thoughts on where I can DCA ETH for cheap? I DCA via Swan for BTC, one time purchases of all other alt coins on CoinbasePro. However, CoinbasePro does not have a DCA option and forget about Coinbase coz their fees are ridiculous.
How bad does it look to prospective employers to change jobs every 3 years? I've done this since college (12 years ago) and have tripled my salary as a result. Granted, I've switched between the same two companies each time, getting a big pay bump in the process. Now, the other company is looking at bringing me back again (3rd time). The pay bump won't be as big, but much better WLB, less travel, and I'll be able to do what I love. Opinions on this?
The weather in NYC is hot as shit. Can't hide this winter muffin top anymore. I blame it on the travel 😃

Hey y’all - I have a large amount (think $20K +) of credit card debt. I recently finished grad school and have enough to pay it all off, but a lot of my money is in stocks, mutual funds, etfs, etc. Should I just liquidate and pay down the CC debt ASAP? Should I consolidate the CC debt into another loan? Curious how folks have thought about the right balance of debt vs investment.
Alright 🐟 🐠 fam, we’re at the halfway point in the year 📆. Post your miles / status for next year. Me: 55k MQM (didn’t travel much the first three months) but now staffed in SF and based in NYC
Gf and I did a road trip down to her condo in FL this weekend from my client site. Drunk at 11pm decided I want to see my mom Sunday. Booked a flight back home for 8 hours so I can take her to dinner.

Anyone know if there’s some secret to actually getting an interview with Disney?? I’ve reached out to a recruiter before and she said they only accept applications that have been submitted through...
Confession - I don't want to go back to office. I'm happy working from home and find no solid reason in stepping back. I hope the flexi work culture allows permanent WFH - I don't have a "good enough" reason, but I don't want to go (isn't this good enough?) It's been 1.5 years now, too comfortable to step out from my PJs to jeans.
I’m trying to raise seed funding for my startup. 1M raise. Bootstrapped to date. We have market traction and revenue We don’t have any contacts/connections in the VC world. Any suggestions on how to connect with VCs? Cold emailing hasn’t really worked for us.

Staying at an established middle market firm where realistic partner track is about 10 -12 years vs moving to big4 or MBB. Pros & cons of both?
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........
Lady 🐠, every time I see one of these lists publish I always puke. For the most part I don't see our most talented and creative being highlighted...
