Through a series of un/fortunate events, my CV is littered with copywriting, marketing and social media management experience. I set up my own business several years ago, doing all such things. On paper, I'm a marketeer. First problem? I can't stand it any longer. Second problem? Where do I start...? [more inside]

I am about to go on a medical leave from work because of some mental health issues. I feel ashamed and guilty, and I don't know how to tell my manager - email?

We were getting close to making an offer on a home — but the house was a lifestyle upgrade, not a necessity. This month we found out a kid is on the way (whoo!), and we're trying to decide if the house is still doable, or if we should save our pennies for the little person-to-be? [more inside]

I was accepted into an MSW program next fall to become an LCSW. I’m concerned about this working out because I have a hard time fitting into office cultures. I particularly have problems with women--and since they dominate the agencies I’m wondering if I should do this? A few scattered snowflakes inside. [more inside]
I'm at a conference and feeling like a failure. I know about power poses, I've started blasting upbeat music in my headphones when I'm going from place to place, and I've started doing little mindfulness/body checks if I'm feeling really alarmed. What else can I be doing to combat my imposter syndrome/crises of confidence, right now?
I am instructed by my lawyer to change banks immediately. I remember seeing an ad, which I cannot place in time, for a bank which would let you build categories (kind of like budget lines) into your checking account. You could allocate X for household supplies, for instance. I have scoured these webs and cannot find such a thing. Does it still exist? What bank had it?

Not really about a specific stock but I'll use NWPX as an example. To clarify what I'm asking I should say I understand the concepts of discounting earnings, voting rights, common stock, diversification etc. but fundamentally I have always scratched my head over what the point of owning this sort of stock is.

My wife are planning to move to New York in around six months. Assuming you had the $$$ & job situation figured out, what steps in moving are unique to that city, or things you wished you did before you moved there? Is there a good 'NYC basics' guide (things that tell you-- yeah you really should get a NYC driver's license, etc) that isn't geared to 22 year olds? [more inside]
