Greetings Friends of Defined Sight!
Earlier this year we we shared an article how a budget and an emergency fund go hand-in-hand. Both are underappreciated and can be overlooked; only 39% of Americans can cover a thousand dollar expense. You don’t have to be an economics genius to understand this doesn’t cut it when life throws you curve balls.
Today we bring to you 3 scenarios of why you might need a huge @$$ emergency fund. These are 3 very real life situations that could happen to you, but we hope never do.

Hey Hey Friends Of Defined Sight!
We did NOT die! Although Mr. DS had a very near death experience this month. Catch up on some of our life events…that I think can be added to the Tales From The Crypt collection?
Luckily, we have friends that chose to live a somewhat remote, simple life a few years ago near the Idaho/Montana border. And so, we decided to take a long-@$$ road trip to visit them for a week.

“What do you want to be when you grow up?”
Super lame question.
It should be, “Where do you want to be at each stage in life?”
Maybe if a question like that would have been posed to me, it wouldn’t have taken me so long to realize I needed to find a job for each stage in life and not the status I was pursuing.
Don’t go through each mistake I made… [Read more…] about Don’t Make a Mistake and Stay: Leave a Job to Match Your Stage in Life
