I know we all love the work from home (or do we?) but does anyone actually miss traveling for their consulting engagements and all the fun that goes along with it? The late nights at the office then the bar and random hookups and excitement and all that? Sure it’s a grind but I think I actually miss it too. Maybe I just miss seeing people at work or seeing people at all. I wonder if we’ll ever get back to that.

Hi! I have a few questions on the backdoor Roth in which I’ve done a bit of research online. When it comes tax time, will my 401k vendor (Merrill) give me the correct documents?

I’m just nervous in the entire process as this is my first year doing this. TIA!!

Interviewed for a job late 2018. Accepted another offer. A day later, the first job reached out and I told them. Lost job for going to HR over a verbally abusive boss. Is it weird to reach back out...
Confession: I wish there were more minorities working at the firms and clients. I am so sick and tired of acting all “corporate” and feeling like everything just has to be serious all the time. I have worked with minorities in other jobs before and it is always so much more of a collective culture as opposed to an individualistic culture (speaking purely from my own personal experiences and anecdotes).
