I will never regret taking a career break to spend time with my children when they were small. I know I would be farther in my career if I had stayed on track but that wasn’t my priority. It’s risky to step away but if you keep up your network, it’s possible to get back on track.

Great to hear your perspective on this, thank you for being honest.

What is everyone’s number? I did the math and at a 7% annual return on my 401k and investment account (accounts for max 401k each year and conservative brokerage allocations each year) I could be at around 8m by 50. Does that seem like a reasonable age & number?

Web development geniuses - tell me what’s so hard about designing a secure online VOTING system to securely cast votes and implement it for US elections? How is it that banks and cryptocurrencies and healthcare data can be processed so securely but when it comes time to build a simple system to identify a person to fill in a voting form and send it securely to the election commission this is suddenly too vulnerable to attack? Sounds like a political move to ban high tech voting.
