Where would you move (within the US) if you could move anywhere? And why there? Currently in NY, lease is up soon, working remotely forever. Never lived anywhere else in the US. I love nature, animals..snorkeling, horseback riding, working out gives me life.

Atlanta. There are some really nice suburbs as well as nature surrounding it. If you want something closer to the Pacific, go with Northern California, but not San Francisco. It's at least a six hour drive further up the coast from San Francisco before you reach Oregon, and most of that coastline is beautiful. Something near Santa Rosa might be perfect if you still need a city nearby.


If you go to Miami, it’s not old at all.

I live in Huntington Beach atm. Surfing is great. Snorkeling is a bit sparse unless you go to Catalina island, but Orange County does have horses. I also do not have a car, and don't see the need of getting one if I can help it. We just came back from a month in Puerto Rico and the Virigin Islands. Would live on a boat if we could and travel to each island working from the boat if we could. I saw you were also in the Caribbean, perhaps that might be an option? I would also check out Oregon along the coast or just north of Marin County in California.

Colorado. CA taxes are bonkers.


Please stop moving here and making our state expensive. Kidding!

Hawaii 100%. Caveat is, you must respect the culture and contribute, but the beauty, food, and aloha spirit is second to none. 🤙


Santa Barbara would be perfect for everything you listed!


Shh- Santa Barbara is a gem, keep it on the low! 😂


San Diego! Multiple beaches, beautiful coastline, good weather throughout the year, and good clubbing/bar scenes.


I am obsessed with Savannah. I am sure you can do snorkeling here, but it's not the most incredible beach you've ever seen. It's just such a pretty town and so much surrounding it. I really love it.


Seattle/greater Seattle area. Washington has all of the things you describe and it’s a great place to live imo. Looking at it from in inside out perspective, I can’t think of any other state that I would be interested in moving to lol


I've lived in multiple places in my life. The easiest places to make friends have been Chicago and Tampa. And Tampa has everything this person is looking for. It is highly underrated and beautiful

Florida? Oregon?


If you want to snorkel that much then you're probably looking at Florida, Hawaii, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands in the US. Other places (Texas, Mississippi) have fewer spots (Possum Kingdom State Park and Gulf Islands National Seashore, respectively). Socal is cool (Anacapa, Catalina and LaJolla) but cold.


Honestly if you like all of those things. LA.


Capital gains taxes in CA are 13%, and in some states it's 0%. And also consider income tax and property tax. I think choosing a location somewhat based on taxes is smart.


Colorado. I love hiking and got the opportunity to visit Garden of The Gods and hike part of Devil's Backbone in 2017. I still can't get over it and want to go back so bad. The views are gorgeous and as long as you stay hydrated the low humidity is great bc I hate being super sweaty when hiking in summertime.


Fort Collins is my fav. Boulder is too expensive and touristy.

Washington State


Check out the Gulf of México in Florida. We just came back from Naples, and I t’s gorgeous. My family lives South Florida’s and the beaches are gorgeous! Miami is a total vibe. Plenty to do in Florida and no state taxes


NYC or LA for me


Delaware or just across the Pennslyvainia line! Inexpensive land with spacious homes, horse country for sure, great parks and an hour for Newark DE which is HQ for many financial, chemical and healthcare companies. Access to Philly for arts and culture.


Hawaii 100% just left there to move to NY but wishing I could be there right now


Nashville or Chattanooga. They both have everything but snorkeling, but you're only 6 hours from the beach by car or a 1.5 hour flight. Plus you're in a state with no income tax. If you're in Chattanooga you're close to some great kayaking/white water rafting on the Ocoee and Fiber is a public utility.


Georgia for sure! Winter is never harsh, summer is so so.. it can be hot and the next min raining. Cost of living is great and there’s a lot of nature .


Corpus Christi, TX. The beach is there. Great food. No state tax.


I've been to corpus several times....I wouldn't recommend. Its highly industrial with huge refineries and chemical plants. Not too scenic for a beach town. But I do love the no state income tax!

Is it normal to feel absolutely lost when first starting out? I’m a staff who just started in FDD, and since I’m a staff I’m getting pretty basic tasks which I understand and can do, but whenever there’s a meeting with the partner or management some questions and conversations go way over my head.. is that normal ?


Kind of sad there are only 50 members in this group :/

Sound Bar - Bose or JBL 5.1 or Sonos?


I feel salaries varies so much by market, individual experience and other factors that it’s hard to even give a good range.

This may seem a lilittle narcissistic, but I'm a young women (early 20s) working in a department where there are way more men than females. At times it feels like younger men are only talking to me because they're interested. After I mention I have a boyfriend it suddenly seems they're less interested in getting to know me. This really makes it difficult because 1) I want to make meaningful relations at work 2) it just reminds me that I'm a female 3) I would love to be buddy-buddy w them
