re: Career advice needed---MBA vs. MAccy - kennypowers816
TX has some oddly specific CPA requirements that are a little frustrating. You're right in that it might not be too easy for you. Although, I think 15 of your accounting hours could come from "distance learning" or correspondence courses. Overall, I would think you should go with the free MBA. ...

re: Career advice needed---MBA vs. MAccy - kennypowers816
Get the free MBA. Use any business elective hours or "track" hours to get some more accounting classes under your belt. Take a few extra hours if you have to in order to get eligible for the CPA. Sit for the CPA and pass it. Once you're a CPA, very few people, if anyone, will care about your...

[quote]I'll ditch Ford and up my contribution to $300/month. [/quote] I agree 100% with ditching any individual equities, but just don't forget that a Roth is merely a "shell" for investments. You could own Ford within a Roth IRA (although I don't recommend it for your particular situation). ...

re: Tell me about Smashburger, coming soon to Town Center - kennypowers816
It's ok. Nothing special. I'd say its relatively comparable in quality, price & service to something like five guys. It's probably a little "nicer" or sharper looking on the inside with a catchy looking menu and names for burgers and the kitchen is closed in the ones that I've been to. But again...

Hypothetically, if you couldn't fill the house, would you be able to afford the monthly payment on your own income? If so and you don't have another need for the 15-20k, I would say go for it. Even if you couldn't afford it for multiple months in a row, I would consider it. Just have a plan b...
