My brother has 2 kids, aged 6 and 3. They never call or keep in touch but take full on advantage of my 77 year old mother who has health issues and debilitating back pain. They put her in stressful situations...she never says no because she’s too nice. Today called and said dropping off both kids FOR 6 days while they go on vacation to Florida for someone’s bday. I live in another state but am summoned to help take care of their kids with absolutely no notice. I say no & im the problem...
Hi, people who have switched companies have you rolled your 401k to your new company or have you found a low fee platform to roll it to personally?
Won’t get employee match on 401k until next year I believe. Should I continue to contribute 15% or lower it and wait to contribute more when I get matched? Or does it matter? Hope to get some advice!

How do I max out my 2020 401k contribution of $19.5k before it ends (does it end 12/31/20)? I wasn’t tracking my contribution rate before but now I realized I can definitely put in a lot more but if it’s pay check to pay check contribution, I won’t be able to max out by year end since not many weeks left to the year to make up.... can I drop a lump sum somehow to max out and reach $19.5k?

Received MBB offer, which I’m very grateful for. I have a medical degree with some work experience. I want to stay in healthcare. I like pharma/biotech, provider systems but also early stage healthcare investing. Certainly open to consulting long term. Few Qs: is the promotion pipeline any different for advanced degree folks? What sort of exit opps would be available to someone like me post MBB? Would my skill set/knowledge base be uniquely sought after, or not really? Thank you for your help!

Any title insurance underwriting counsel here? Full service real estate attorney looking to focus my practice. I’ve applied to most of the major title insurers these last few weeks and I’m feeling hopeful. I’ve never underwritten title but I’ve searched title, written abstracts, written certified title opinions, advised clients in house, litigated quiet title actions, property line disputes and defended oil and gas trespass cases.

*Advice* I recently accepted position at a 50K pay cut (covid). I shared my target salary /lateral move & at the negotiation point, they came up slightly by way of qtrly bonus structure but also outlined path for growth incl. expected salary increases at said points. Said it could be achieved in under a year. By day 4 of the new job they had accelerated to the final point in that plan without making good on title / salary. Spoke up immediately... “in discussion” 2 weeks in. Bait/switch WWUD??
