Want an example of how an emergency fund can come in useful? How about two examples? Kate Dore from Cashville Skyline shares how her's saved her big time.
Who knew an emergency fund could save your life not once, but twice! So is the story of Kate Dore from Cashville Skyline which she shared in full detail for this episode of the podcast.
Talk about someone who turned lemons into lemonade! Most people would begrudge their bad luck when faced with two layoffs in 10 years, but not Kate. Instead of complaining or just struggling through it all, she took it as a big lesson in becoming financially prepared. Which later turned out to be her big passion, which is why she's now on the road to becoming a financial planner.
If there's only one thing you can take away from this episode, it's this - life happens, so have an emergency fund just in case. I've certainly been thankful for mine on more than one occasion in my life, that's for sure. Not only that, having an emergency fund is hands down the first thing I tell people to set up as they start their personal finance journey. It may not be fun or sexy, but having one will literally save your life!
I'm excited to see where Kate ends up after becoming a full-fledged Certified Financial Planner, but until then it looks like she's been busy the past few months creating some great blog posts and personal finance courses. I've linked them below so you can check them out.
