How prepared are you for a financial emergency? We recently had the opportunity to discuss this with The Daily Ticker.
Check out and share the article, along with our 5-step plan to help those you love be prepared:
- Define “emergency” and determine how much you need to set aside
- Stop overspending by using an envelope budgeting system
- Cut back on discretionary spending (like those daily $4 dollar lattes)
- Eliminate late payments and overdraft fees
- Reallocate extra debt payments and 401K funding to emergency fund
