|Code monkey finally made it to sunny Silicon Valley ~ Tweet me @_labangel
|Why I Joined
|I've read lots of PF blogs, figure it's time to give back.
|Best Financial Decision
|Going to the college that gave me a full ride
|Worst Financial Decision
|Perhaps holding on to company stock rather than diversifying. It caused me some stress in late 2022 - early 2023.
|Current Investing Strategy
|Switch jobs to get exposure to lots of teams, technologies, companies, incomes, work-life balances
I used to have a mini-portfolio in Robinhood where I traded very frequently so I could get the antsiness out of my system. That way I didn't touch my 401K and IRA accts. I'm to busy with other stuff to do even that anymore.
|How do you manage your finances?
|Automatic contribution to 401K, HSA, (used to have ESPP), and brokerage accts. Automatic credit card, mortgage, and bill payments. Everything else is manual right now.
|What tools do you use?
|Networthshare, Personal Capital, personal finance Facebook groups and blogs to keep me on track
|I need financial help with...
|So many things: making more money, having a partner with a different approach to money, having more than one income stream, being correctly insured, budgeting. (Used to need help with but now figured out what the heck are backdoor roth ira's!)
|I've read so many PF blogs and articles
