Build an emergency fund - She sheds some light on this in a different post. According to her, “an emergency fund is approximate to 6 months of your monthly income stashed away in an accessible account for the unforeseeable.”
She adds, “You don't shelf it away in real estate or in any other asset that you can not quickly convert into cash.”
