Best way to sell Hamilton tickets?

I ended up with two tickets to Hamilton for the March 5 matinee showing that I am not longer able to attend. I paid quite a bit in fees to get them and it looks like selling them on Stubhub will cost quite a lot more. Is there a safer way to sell them (safe for both me and the buyer) that won't cost so much? These are premium seats that are currently about $2,000 each on Stubhub. I live in the DC area.

Placing myself under pressure to do an MSc - irrational or sensible?

I'm contemplating doing an MSc in a vocational based subject this year, chiefly because i know it will help me forge a solid occupation/career which i know i will enjoy given time, but deep down it's not what i really want to do. It will be a case of eventually end up 'loving what i do', as opposed to 'doing what i love'. Am I right to make a career plan and pursue it because logically it's the sensible thing to do?

please, please me. with some marketing.

I remember from business school the concept of "pleasers", "exciters", "disappointers" etc. the idea that some products/services features are expected and disappoint when missing, whereas some features are "nice-to-have" (pleasers) and some are so amazing they drive people to become evangelists for your product and generally trend the industry towards the way your product works (exciters). help me find some documentation on this concept [more inside]

financial planning with kids

What books would you recommend on financial planning or money in general when you have kids? Middle-class orientated. Kids are currently preschool or younger. I'm specifically thinking of mostly long-term planning along the parenting continum: life insurance, daycare/summer camps, eventual older kids costs (I've heard teenagers are expensive too), college, retirement. Also general questions like deciding when/if you have money for a big purchase (remodel/addition/etc), how much emergency fund, allowances for kids even. [more inside]
