Do you have $400 to spare?

I didn’t send you a tip last week…

My wife went into labor, and our daughter was born shortly after. I didn’t get a chance to prepare the email to meet my deadline.

Mea culpa.

Anyway, this week’s email is about savings.

Specifically, do you have more than most people?

A government survey showed that 47% of Americans would have to sell an asset, or borrow, to raise $400 for an emergency expense.

I discovered this article written by a published author, teacher, and TV script writer. Famed director Martin Scorsese bought the movie rights to one of his books. He confesses: he’s in that 47%.


It makes you think.

Could you afford an emergency $400 expense?

If not, what steps do you need to take to raise that $400 over the next three months?

What do you think?
