re: Choose 1: Retire 15 years earlier or wait till retirement for 2x nest egg - Bayou Tiger
B easily. I enjoy my job and the people I work with, and still have lots of flexibility with family time / vacation and a short commute. Plus it would be hard for me to just hang out not accomplishing something....

re: Ways to improve interviewing skills - Bayou Tiger
I would highly recommend the Interview Series of podcasts by Manager Tools. Over my career I have spent plenty of time screening candidates and interviewing, but that podcast series was a huge help during my recent job search. It was $100-200 or something like that, but I listened and applied the...

re: What's the longest you've gone without sleep, ie, tied one on, bender, etc? - Bayou Tiger
40 hours is not unusual for me. I usually do this once every few months or so if work is really busy. I just work through one day at the office straight through to the end of the next day. As long as I am zoned in on what I am working on, usually not much coffee is involved. There is usually one ...

Best Interest-Only HELOCs? - Bayou Tiger
We recently purchased a new house. With a significant bit of equity, I would prefer to have the funds available through a HELOC to provide additional liquidity. The nice part about a HELOC is that you only pay interest charges when you have an outstanding balance unlike a home equity loan where you ...

re: References on a resume or not? - Bayou Tiger
Don't put references and don't put "References Available Upon Request". Of course they are. Do you put "Drug Test Available Upon Request" or "Interviews Available Upon Request"? After looking at resumes over the years that has become a pet peeve along with World Wide Web proficiency and goofy email ...

re: Fazoli's on Siegen Lane - Baton Rouge - Bayou Tiger
I used to love eating at Fazoli's back in the day. The food was decent but way better than fast food burgers. Unfortunately at all of the locations I went to the management sucked. It must have been a corporate issue. Fazoli's was on my poorly managed shite list along with Whitney Bank and Ser...

re: Home Warranty Recommendations - Bayou Tiger
I've been reading a lot of negatives online about AHS and home warranty companies in general. The basic theme is that home warranties no longer make big replacements of AC, etc, if something major is wrong. They just nickel and dime you to death replacing one part at a time charging 75 dollars every...

re: Visiting with potential companies in person - Bayou Tiger
I work for an operating company in the oil industry and would say that stopping by in person is not the way to go. Anybody who you want to talk to is probably pretty busy and would not appreciate the interruption. There are enough calls already from headhunters and sales, with drive-bys from sale...

re: Which loan to pay off first? - Bayou Tiger
At what income level is mortgage interest not deductible? You can even deduct that with AMT (if a first mortgage on primary residence). ETA: Just looked it up and saw that since 2011, the mortgage interest deduction starts getting phased out at moderate income levels. I haven't had a mortgage sin...

re: Met a personal financial milestone today! - Bayou Tiger
Finally reached $1M net worth. Since I am not an OT'er, it was a long time coming and took a lot of sacrifices and saving early on. It sounds odd but with multiple kids and the costs to retire it does not seem like that much money....
