How To Start An Emergency Fund : Saving your first $1000

Today’s video is so close to my heart because I believe not enough education and attention is given to this particular topic : building personal wealth.

I was researching a topic for a freelance client of mine and came across a fairly startling statistic : about 70% of people who live in the US do not have a savings account.

Considering that a savings account is the most basic unit to building personal wealth I took this finding to heart. On top of THAT, I also realized that personally, I had not been proactive about about starting a savings account for myself !

I leapt into action and started getting my financial life in order.

FIRST STEP.

Pay off all debt. I am currently taking care of that aggressively.

SECOND STEP

Create a $1000 emergency fund.

What I have learned through this process

  • If you are passive about your money, opportunities to build wealth that are painfully obvious will pass you by
  • Saving up a $1000 was not as difficult as I thought it was – you just have to take intentional consistent action
  • Once you build up the courage to save up $1000, saving up $5000, $10,000 etc will actually begin to feel within reach

I talk about my experiences in the video above.
