What happens when you have an unexpected family crisis?  Does it spell financial disaster as well?

In 2016 my husband Tom was training for an Ironman race.  At 49 he was in the best shape of his life….and then he had a really bad accident.  He was out of work for 6 months with no pay.   For most families that would spell financial disaster.

Could you survive six months without any (or significantly less) money coming in?  This isn’t just a question for families living pay check to pay check.  If you’re like most people, the more you make, the more you spend.

In today’s show I’ll share my story and how we managed our way through the crisis.  As you probably expect, I’m going to be talking about emergency funds.

We’ll cover everything from how much you need to have set aside, the peace you have knowing it’s there, the anger (yup…the anger) you feel that it’s money sitting on the sidelines, and how to get started setting one up.

Check out this week’s show!

Tired of the way the money in your life makes you feel?  Why do we feel like we are supposed to know how to manage money when it’s not something we are taught when we are growing up?  No worries…I’ve got you covered.

I created the Your Money Made Easy support group for women that want to learn how money works and want to be surrounded by other women that are changing the way they manage the money in their lives.

When you join Your Money Made Easy, you not only will have access to the support of other successful, like-minded people, but you also will have access to the FREE trainings and resources from me!  Having a group lets me make my content more personal and exclusive to the members of the group.
