My Cobra runs out in January so I need to find health insurance but am so busy with projects I haven’t found the time to do the research. Any recos for a good broker that can find the best policy for me?

Also if you can get a contract through a recruiter they always offer healthcare.

Nooo then they also take 50% of your rate, not worth it

Aetna is outstanding. I also recommend Mutual of Omaha. Depending on your age and health consider an HMO vs a PPO.

Non-fun fact: Aetna is good for anyone who doesn’t work at Aetna (now owned by CVS). My brother-in-law worked for Aetna and the healthcare they give their employees is downright criminal. It’s so bad many at Aetna have tried to negotiate being paid instead of using their employee health plan so that they could purchase their own insurance. Aetna won’t let them.

Anyone else in the FIRE camp (Financial Independence, Retire Early)? Started second guessing 401k contributions, since I'll likely want to start drawing on it well before 59.5. I know there's an exception for the early withdrawal penalty (72t) for equal payments, but I'm wondering if there's a better investment vehicle than the 401k if early retirement is the goal Would be interested to hear others' suggestions/experiences Thanks!

Looking for advice on how to career pivot. My husband is a general manager for a company that has HQ in a different state so growth opps are limited unless we move. How do I help him pivot into a more corporate job somewhere before it’s too late and he’s pegged as a boots on the ground GM? He has so much potential but I feel like all people see on his resume is that he’s a GM of a location as opposed to an operations leader especially when applying to jobs on LinkedIn. Looking for jobs in ATL.
