Financial Myth: You Need Three to Six Months of Emergency Funds Saved

  1. Financial Myth: You Need Three to Six Months of Emergency Funds Saved Steve Campbell & Travis Maus 29:50

Want to get in touch? Send us a text!

In this episode, we discuss the myth that everyone should have three to six months' worth of expenses in their emergency fund. 

We argue that this advice is overly generic and fails to consider individual circumstances and lifestyles. We emphasize the importance of understanding your expenses and income over a prolonged period of time and tailoring the emergency fund accordingly. 

We also explore different tools and strategies for accessing cash in case of emergencies, such as credit cards, loans, home equity lines of credit, investment accounts, and Retirement accounts. As we bring the episode to a close we highlight the benefits of having a plan and understanding the various options available.

Steve Campbell Podcaster | Business Owner | Husband | Father to Four

Based on lessons learned during the 2008 Financial Crisis and extensive professional experience, Ditch the Suit’s was a response to the panic induced by the COVID-19 Financial Crisis, where a collision of social fear and financial volatility, fueled by the politicization of nearly every issue, seemed to tip the world upside down. With the goal to help people avoid making financially destructive decisions, co-hosts Travis Maus and Steve Campbell produced daily recordings on a wide range of topics, such as staying positive, understanding the financial impact of new legislation, how to take advantage of the stock market when it crashes, blocking out fear-mongering, etc. which eventually gave way to the creation of the Ditch the Suits Podcast.

Ditch the Suits has become more than a podcast – it’s become a movement. Travis and Steve share their experiences and industry insights in order to help you make one good financial decision after another.

Their listeners know they will hear things from us that no one else is willing to tell them!
