Hi everyone. I need some advice. I’m doing some freelance work for a couple out of Los Angeles. They launched a website called Fuconomy which allows people to share their COVID experiences and connect with others who are going through the same emotional and economic struggles. They’re not selling anything. They simply want to help people. I’ve reached out to some TV people in hard hit markets and a few journalists, but no response yet. I really want to do well for them. Great people! Thanks!
I got an offer from KPMG India, I accepted it earlier but I am now planning to reject it. Will KPMG India blacklist me even from future opportunities? And also if there is any cool off period?

I leased a 2019 Forte from Kia and I was just going to return it as moving back to my home country. However the buyout cost is 12.8k and quick search on online shows them selling for up to 20k and mine has less miles (only 13k). Caravana offered 17.8k thru their quick appraisal.
Is there anything I am missing here? is there no risk to buying and selling immediately? Will there be taxes? Extra costs from Kia possibly that i’m not considering that wouldn’t make this worthwhile. TIA
Does intraday movement of the S&P 500 affect whether an index fund’s NAV goes up or down, or is NAV purely based on how the index’s close compares to previous day’s close?
In other words, if S&P closes higher today than it did yesterday, the NAV for VFIAX is guaranteed to be higher, and vice versa.
Those with kids and have the option of a dependent care FSA at work. Did y’all go ahead with getting it?

I recently heard of back door Roth contributions ending at the end of the year. I am in my first year of my MBA and was planning on rolling over next year during my lowest earning year during my summer internship. Any tips on what to do now with potentially shifting policy?

I want to grow my wealth and feel financially secure. Would love insight.
Got notice that I had a little bit of money from my Big 4 pension (~9k). I have a couple days to decide what to do with it. I am considering rolling it into 401K but leaning to take the cash to invest in an index fund since I want more options of investments. However, taking the cash would mean a 10% penalty in addition to taxes. I don’t currently have a Roth or traditional IRA. Would it make more sense to create a traditional IRA and roll it to that then convert to ROTH?
