Is going to a small firm actually worth it for WLB or is it just taking a pay cut to have substantially the same hours/stress levels?

Can we not call it TrumpCare or ObamaCare and just call it the Affordable Care Act like it should have been from day one. Stop playing politics with healthcare. People die from this BS.
I am looking to switch careers. I have been in my current career for nearly 20 years. I need a change. I have masters degree in instructional technology, health care administration, and English.

This may sound bizarre but in a pinch. I have been jumping through hoops trying to get imaging for a new lump in my chest. Everything is so far booked in my area that it’s impossible to get scans same week even if you call first thing Monday AM. It’s now been two weeks since I discovered it and am still waiting on schedules to get tests done. My insurance covers ER visits 100%…wondering if I just do it? I have a busy life and really just need answers.
I feel like I am so behind in my savings/finances. Senior 2, I have about $30K in liquid $/cash and $60K total (incl. investments, 401k etc.). I know I made conscious choices to live in my own apartment since graduating (in HCOL area) and lease a car (to be fair, no help from parents and couldn't afford to buy one), but I feel like I'm way behind in life. Anyone else constantly feel like everyone else has more $$?
Setting up our first small business 401k! Should we be an ERISA 3(38) advisor? What are the pros and cons?
Trying to figure out how to manage health issues and work balance. I just recently found out I might have herpes (waiting for the test results to come back) and I have been very and feeling like my life is over especially because it came from being cheated on and struggling with prioritizing my bandwidth and not knowing how to communicate it with my team. Due to stigmas around something as common as herpes I cannot comfortably share that with my team.
Hey y’all, what are some good exit opportunities to look for in Canada? Some context: I’m a healthcare consultant without a clinical background, but I really don’t love the work I’m doing.

I've seen a couple of posts about fitness tracker subsidies - how do they work? Are they through employer or insurance co, and if so does anyone the details KPMG / Aetna? (Or where on portal to look?)
Been hell of a year so far. Sort of bittersweet. Lost my job a few months back. Laid off the first time. But my net worth is all time high.

Guess will go with happy for now.
