Welcome to the November 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!
A great intro article for those new to saving and investing – How to Start Investing: A Complete Guide for Beginners.
I've been meaning to write a clear post on estate planning, but found the material a bit yawn producing. Thankfully, Mrs. Bita wrote a great post in it for Physician on Fire recently. Remember that estate planning is state specific. Be sure to check if documents need to be redone if you move states. Thankfully, we just need to update the POA with our move.
I recently wrote about my complicated postpartum course. I am grateful that I had my insurances in place. Postpartum hemorrhage (and my gestational diabetes) would've dinged me at least two health classes. And, the worse could've happened. Carrie and I discuss life insurance at the Hippocratic Hustle.
I recently wrote about blended family finances. Being a stepmother (I like the term bonus mom better) is challenging and being a mom to Eggy with a bonus son has brought up feelings that I did not expect. I am finally reading this book that was recommended to me.
