Any advice on pivoting from film/commercial production to agency (in toronto)? Asking for a friend. They have a 2-3 years of experience but are finding the work really unstable/inconsistent and just generally incompatible with their mental health (overnight shifts, etc). They’re aware agency is really busy/a grind too, but think it would be a better fit. They’re also exceptionally extrovert and would be excellent in any sort of client facing role. Does anyone have any advice/experience/thoughts?

Over the last three years my mfg company has had a lot of people leave and each time I take on the extra responsibility - from admin, payroll, benefits, compliance, safety, inventory and shipping. I literally do it all. And not only that, but I’ve eliminated and optimized a lot of wasteful processes in order to get it all done. I thought that it would all come with eventual pay increases since it saves the company over 300k in overhead. This whole time I should have been OE. I feel like a fool.

Transferred some stock in kind from one brokerage to another but noticed that each transferred stock appears to be bought at the current price on the day of the transfer (eg. if avg price of my TSLA stock was $500 before transferring now it’s showing $620). Now I’m freaking out because it seems like as a result I’ve erased all my historical gains on the stocks that I had bought at a much lower price years ago? Am I missing something or did I just lose all my unrealized gains by transferring?

I’ve been contributing to our ROTH IRAs this year monthly. Didn’t max out for me and wife, but are close (and will by April deadline). We were under income thresholds by a good margin based on salary so I was fine contributing throughout the year… except I just got a massive unexpected bonus (yay) that shoots us over the income limits (I think). 1. Is the income limit based on AGI or before tax gross? 2. Assuming I’m over limit for 2021 based on AGI anyway, is there anyway to fix this?

I see everyone screaming “buy the dip”. If you are going to I advise the strategy I learned when I started out 10/20/30, 1/2/3. Invest 1/3 of your cash on the sidelines when the stock falls 10%, another third at 20% and the rest at 30%. Definitely helped in March. This assumes you did your OWN research and analysis on the stocks you purchased. Junk is junk no matter what price you bought it.
