It's a beautiful time of year filled with warmth and sunshine. A time that many of us look forward to.
Days like this, looking ahead to stormy weather may be the last thing you want to do. But planning for a "rainy day" is important. Think of the old fable of the Ant & the Grasshopper. Are you prepared for darker days?
Unfortunately, many Americans aren't nearly ready, financially, for an emergency. If you haven't yet started an emergency fund, or haven't been giving it the nurturing it deserves, think of this as your wake up call.
Where to begin? Start by setting a goal. Think about what you'll need, in terms of actual cash reserves, if you were to be without income for up to 6 months. Next, develop a plan to start saving toward that goal - and stick to it.
Not sure exactly what you'll need, or where/how to tuck it away? Feel free to give me a call. I'll be happy to help you take a look. Remember - I'm here for you, every season.
