Bought Alibaba back in 2020 and it’s been downhill from there. Should I sell off the $3k max for tax loss harvesting? Does this just reduce my income tax on that 3k?? No other investment sales this year. New to this, thanks.

I just have to say that signing up for therapy (and finding my current therapist) was one of the best decisions I made in my life. I’m learning a lot about myself and how to live a happier life.

Happy last Friday of summer! Does your agency do Summer Fridays? Did you have time to take all of them? Why not All-Year-Round Fridays? Why not a floating weekday each week? What would you argue for?
The first things you need to organize your workplace are a full staff list and an org chart (title hierarchy). If those don't already exist, you can make them.
