Why Emergency Funds Don’t Work

In this week’s episode we are looking at emergency funds and why I don’t believe emergency funds work for people. The phrases “emergency fund” and “rainy day fund” historically have a very negative attachment that can leave people struggling to spend it even when they need to.

We are going to explore what you should be setting up instead.
