Welcome to the October 2017 edition of the Monthly CME. I’ve put together a short list of articles, podcasts, and books for your reading pleasure. Topics will range from personal finance to life-work balance and more. Enjoy!
I am due this month (and when this post goes live, baby boy may be out!). I read this touching article by a physician mom who had her first twin babies at age 44.
I know very little about long term care insurance but it’s a topic that comes up a lot – whether one should buy it or not. Mike Piper did a great job explaining things.
If you’re part a dual high income couple, consider yourself lucky! You’ll have more flexibility to get out of debt (if you have any) and a bigger shovel to throw at retirement savings. Unfortunately, most dual high income couples grow into the dual income too quickly.
Podcasts & Audiobooks:
My awesome FA was recently interviewed by Michael Kitces. I’m flattered that I’m considered a Center of Influence.
Sometimes finances can seem all about the numbers. A friend recently recommended this book to me that helps you discover a life that will continue vs. a life to retire to. Sounds similar to exercise M & I did with our FA where we had to really think about our goals and if they would be different if we had less time left.
