Recently, a friend and leader sent me an SOS about her new IT job, “I don’t know how you did this, please send help. How do I succeed here as a woman?” We set up a series of mentorship calls, but my overarching advice for her echoed throughout: “You deserve a seat at the table. Don’t act like you’re new or stay quiet. Take up space–you’re in that room for a reason. Speak with confidence. Don’t undermine yourself.” advertisement advertisement I no longer hide myself at work. But it wasn’t always this way. When I started my career in tech, I was already living inauthentically. I was married to a man, and my colleagues were mostly straight, white men, whose clothing styles I emulated to try to fit in. Yes, that meant I showed up to work most days in khakis and a polo shirt. I wasn’t dressing for my personality, I was dressing to play a role. A manager at the time pulled me aside and told me I needed to dress more professionally, which really meant … [Read more...] about This is how I lead with compassion as a queer, Black woman in tech

While there have been ups and downs for Cypark since it was listed about 12 years ago, the last three weeks have been arguably the most challenging period for the company, which intends to convert solid waste into electricity. Its share price plunged 55% to 31 sen on June 10, from 69 sen on May 20.

Share to Twitter Share to Linkedin You’ve maxed out your 401k - now what? Current ﬁgures indicate that just 12% of Americans max out their 401k 1 , but if you’re anything like the people I speak to on a daily basis, you already are and you're wondering what's next. In 2022 the 401k limit increased to $20,500, and here's the truth of the matter: if you're used to making a six or seven ﬁgure income and living an abundant lifestyle, that’s not that much money to save annually for retirement. In addition to this volume concern imposed by the IRS contribution limit, inﬂation has also been on the rise, up from 3% to 6.8% in 2021. So having $3 million dollars in your 401k at retirement might seem ﬁne today (and normally achievable if you max out your 401k for 30 years with an average S&P return), but 30 years from now it’s going to buy a lot less than it can today. If inﬂation averages just 4.97% per year, in 30 years from now $3,000,000 would … [Read more...] about You’ve Maxed Out Your 401k – Now What?
