This is about to be the first month in my life where I'm unable to pay off my credit card statement balance (about 2.5k leftover) and I'm feeling like such a failure. Any tips on how to mitigate the impact of this and get out of the hole asap?
What’s your credit card line up and why? I’m shopping around for new cards to maximize points for travel and hotels. Currently have the Amex Platinum, Amex Gold, Amex Hilton Surpass, and an American Airlines card.
Hi fishies, I had an approved I-539 for an L2 visa. Would I be eligible for Dropbox visa stamping? Any other ways to get stamped would be greatly appreciated as well. Thank you!
Are some of the lounges free at the airport by showing the company credit card? Is the food free, too?
Hi Folks, my F-1 visa expired earlier this year and I’m currently on STEM OPT. Would love to go back home (India) for two weeks during December/Jan but haven’t had any luck yet with getting appointments to stamp my visa. Anyone else on the same boat?
I want to hit Marriott Gold before my next business trip (so I can have my trip count towards the fast track from gold to platinum promo)... and I will be there if my 15 elite night credits from my Marriott credit card are applied (opened the card about three weeks ago). Is there any way to speed up the application of those credits? Anyone have any luck doing this via phone?
Gonna get amex platinum and want to get the annual personal card credit. Do I first apply with the highest SUB then call for the credit after I am approved or just call and do both at once?
Canada PR vs USA H1B visa. I am on H1B in USA with a good job and I have a Canada PR which I thought of using to get more stability in life but as I am running out of time on Canada PR it’s making me anxious if I should stay in the USA or move to Canada. Can someone share their experience if faced the similar issue?

Any perspective on m&a with regards to the current situation? Is M&A going to be the most hit? What are people and especially people on Visa doing as backup plans?
Ever heard “omg how are you single, you are fit, handsome and successful”. Gets on my nerves every time. I would like to be in a relationship but dating as a gay man is wack. All about sex, and the times I’ve caught feelings for a guy it’s not been “exciting” for him anymore as the “chase” is over. Apparently being available is a turnoff. And the comment “come on, you can get whom ever you want”..........

Keeping the big 4 in mind, what role/level would you have to reach before you qualify for a eb1c L1 visa with a good chance of approval?

Just got an email saying I've been selected as a candidate for a promotion in June...is this a new process?
Long term which do you all see as more lucrative consulting for big 4 (assume you ultimately would make partner) or move to tech industry? We can debate WLB separately but this is purely money
Those working in consulting at big 4..are you constantly seeing yourself working 50+hrs during Covid and just being told to keep doing it? To what extent can we push back? Just because we are home doesn’t mean we don’t have family obligations as well... expectations up front are never communicated so I don’t find out I’ll be working long until I start a new client....meanwhile many colleagues are working 40hrs consistently but pay is same.... not a complainer but something’s gotta give
Why do some people always keep “Away” as their status on Skype?! I don’t get it, sometimes people actually need to know if they can ping you
>thought I trainwrecked an interview because i couldn't answer any technical questions ... > get offered r2 interview anyway because I have a 'good attitude' ... I'll take it 👌

Boomers are often considered selfish, right? Consider the following: People over the age of 75 comprise 54% of COVID deaths. At that age, the actuarial tables aren’t exactly favorable to begin with. By contrast, people under the age of 50 comprise 7% of COVID deaths. Throwing the world into a state of absolute chaos (thereby sticking younger generations with the long-term consequences) is next level.

Hey guys! I recently started working (3 months ago) and I have weird anxiety about money and savings, I’m also in an entry level role . My question is to partners or senior directors/senior managers because I aspire to reach that level of financial stability - at what point did you feel comfortable and how did you deal with money at a young age? Do you think that savings increase and financial stability increases as you rise up the ladder? What are your tips from personal experience? Contd..

Parents are deciding between moving to WVirginia vs Virginia for retirement to be closer to us based in fairfax, va(ideally be at 1 hour driving distance). They currently in the mid west but WVirginia appeals to them because of low taxes, low cost of living. We are also poc so appreciate some diversity. What are some areas you would recommend both in Va and WV? What else should they consider prior to house hunting? Dad likes to garden/farm as well so looking for homes with large backyards. Tia!
