All signs are this job is a go.. large company.. 1 week downtown Chicago for training and then onsite in WINFIELD (10-15 minutes from the house).. my gym is on the way there and on the way home. It still allows for school. business casual. I am working with a vendor team onsite at their client which is a much more fun model than the one I just left (at the bank) and much more closely aligned with how I used to work at my large long term client . much more pay... $79/hr
Excited. nervous .. WOw
I talked to my accountant and w the tax laws and the rental income and the fact that the contractor firm
does not pay benefits. it makes sense for me to go 1099 vs w2 so I am goign to do that. He even thinks I will save at least $10k a year doing that. AND they don't offer a 401k either so I will set up a solo 401k and contribute the max to that and then the company can pay in 25% of my total comp. If I work there through year end that is over $40k thousand this year to the 401k!
I will research solo 401k companies.. and my accountant may have thoughts.
Losing weight finally!!! and gettign in shape .. feels great..
I gained 9 lbs between July-Dec last year likely due to the 2 flat nightmare but I am toning up and going to lose that
So still hoping to finish my 5 year goal strong (5 year goals ends 6/30/18) and then this entire year strong in terms of saving as much as I can
I am SO EXCITED that maybe I have a high paying fun job that still allows me flexibility to work out, go to school and have a life.
Fingers crossed it goes well.
My start date will be either Wed/Thurs or Friday next week. Still pending drug test and background check (I should have no issues)
The new job appears to be a GO!!!!
