Have an Eight-Month Emergency Fund

It’s important to have an eight-month emergency fund before parting with your money.

“Possibly, people are asking you for money because they didn’t have enough of an emergency fund. They got into trouble,” Suze said. “And if you don’t have at least an eight-month emergency fund, you don’t have the money to lend.”
