Hello, fishes! I am leaving my current company and headed into industry. I want to learn data analytics, but as a CPA, should I get a masters degree or would a certification in data analytics be good enough? Keep in my mind I still have 30K of student loan debt.

Why does everyone say PE is a “low risk” way to make a lot of money? Once you hit VP level, isn’t the majority of your compensation in carry, which doesn’t get paid out until 5-7 years AFTER it is earned (while in consulting, your bonus is paid out in the year it’s earned)? And if you look at the CALPERS database, don’t many funds of mega fund/UMM PE firms fail to exceed the hurdle rate? So even at established UMM/MF PE firms there’s a possibility you’ll get no carry? Am I missing something?

“A child really isn’ that expensive in the first 3-4 years” ~ Spouse 7 months ago. Our bank account after 7 months of pregnancy says otherwise.

Advice on picking battles over expenditures for a future child?
