Beyond The Stethoscope

Jun 23, 2020

Favorite quotes of the episode:

“It’s ok if you are in financial survival mode right now but remember that it’s a temporary situation.”

“Make sure your emergency fund is somewhere you can access in the middle of the night.”

“COVID19 has exposed the need for an emergency fund, but make sure your cash that’s just sitting around waiting on an emergency is earning interest for you. For example, there are high-interest savings accounts earning over 1 percent.”
