|Alexis, do yourself a favor and get a real job with real benefits ( salary, health insurance, 401 (k), vacation pay, sick pay, stock options, etc). Although that's very challenging in this job environment. Not easy-to-do.|
"What do you wish you would have known starting out?" I wish I had fully realized the consequences of not participating in a 401(k) program during the longest and biggest bull market in history. It cost me $xxx,xxx+.
Now I am suffering and its a very painful lesson.
Learn from my mistake. Don't let this happen to you. You will spend the rest of your working career regretting becoming an "experienced" notary. And you will be stuck with no marketable skills.
