If you were faced with a financial emergency, how would you respond? Imagine you just found out that today was your last day at work and you had no other income- do you know how you would cut back in order to get by? That might be a terrible scenario to envision, but we believe that having a bare bones budget in your back pocket is necessary as it can be powerful in case of a financial emergency. It’s all about keeping your needs and cutting your wants in order to prevent you from relying on debt or making other ill-advised financial moves. During this episode we discuss what you should include in your own bare bones budget, as well as the additional benefits that accompany thinking through some of the worst case money scenarios that you might encounter.
