History repeats from time to time but still greed seems to conquer everyone. We should always stick to fundamentals. Bitcoin , GME , AMC ... let me say it again: in this fake battle between Reddit and hedge funds the only people at loss are the noob investors. Hedge fund money comes from many of our pension and retirement account so if hedge funds loose it is ultimately the common man that suffers.
@KpmgStrategy 🐠: my gf, whose interning there this summer, tells me you guys have a per diem by zip code and have to use our own personal card for expenses, whats up with that?!?
🎯 MBA🐟, if MBB hired you, do you have the option to get tuition reimbursement instead of signing bonus? E.g. Accenture Strategy gives 50k towards loans
How do you know you like someone more than friends with benefits? Person I'm dating is cute, sexy,kind, considerate, responsive, fun & easy to be with, ambitious, financially stable & great in bed.
The math is wonky, but Wifey and I spent $1M this year (including the 620k in loans initiated) - 700k house, 60k taxes, 70k boat, 40k car, 60k to finish attic, 50k stocks, 36k 401k...#opp.ofhumblebrag
My salary is 95k, 10% in 401k, save $1500 a month, renting, and single. I feel financially middle class despite being at least in the 80th percentile. Seems really hard to achieve the american dream.
Obamacare is shit but really you wanna take healthcare insurance away from people during a period when more people need it? 🤦♂️
Looking to sever ties with my financial advisor and take matters into my own hand. I’m 27 with 250k cash (flipped a house), 50k in 401k, 30k in brokerage. Medium risk appetite / hoping for FIRE. Recs?
In-house marketing departments are flourishing right now. We’ve hired two new people, and plan on more. And we continue to fire our agencies, from content creation to branding. I think it’s a positive move, as I’ve seen better work related to the brand I work for come from those who understand it best. Tell me again why a full agency is necessary? 😆 We hire and give full benefits, while agencies continue to ask freelancers for discounts, while jacking up their agency rates.
I absolutely hate EY’s Fidelity 401k. Deloitte’s Vanguard answers the phone the moment you call. Meanwhile Fidelity I’ve been on hold for 20min+ and this is every time I call.
I made over $6500 today in my 401k. My retirement investments made more since President Trump has been in power than any other president in my life time. I hope this continues so I may actually have a shot at returning someday. I'm interested to know how much other people made today. What type of day did you have $$$?
Just had an argument with the wife about who's working "harder" at this moment. She's a nurse and I respect what she's going through. But she's making it seem like things is all easy with me working from home and watching a toddler by myself. I argued well I acknowledged how hard you worked during maternity leave while watching our daughter while I worked. I'm basically doing both roles at the same time. She said its not really the same thing but I think thats hypocritical. Am I wrong?
Can we debate why Canadian healthcare is leaps and bound better than the US broken health care system?
In my early thirties, still an Engagement Manager only making $355k basic, plus benefits and guarenteed minimum bonus of $100k. What did I do wrong? #Satire #DoesAnyoneElseFeelThisTypeOfDiscussionHappensWayToMuchHere? #WhyDoSoManyPeepsNeedValidation? Not trying to put people down, but seems there are far too many people on the hamster wheel just churning and in need of validation. Any thoughts? Am I off base?
I don’t know who needs to hear this, but... -Buy used or cheap cars, nobody cares how ~sick~ your car is. Once your net worth is $1M+, buy whatever new car you want -GET YOUR EMPLOYER 401k MATCH -If you are not investing money, you are losing money (2% inflation per year) -Investing is not only for rich people & is not difficult. Google “total stock market index funds” pick a few, buy them every month, and HOLD ON TO THEM -Everything about personal finance can be learned on YouTube
26 and my 401K balance looks like my annual income 🙏🏻 feeling thankful and motivated to continue to play in this consulting game 🤓

As I prepared to file my notice, the partner of the firm called me and asked me to stay. They’re willing to promote me mid year in December and increase salary next year in August. The current offer I have gives 60% pay increase and Partner still can’t match that offer after promotion. Firm leadership says here I have potential to be a partner in 8 years and talk about all the leadership support I have rn which is fair. Is this one of their tactics to make me stay or should I just leave…
After Delta delayed my flight I negotiated with them 15,000 miles as compensation for their mistake...
