Back in May, I completed Dave Ramsey’s Baby Step 1: Save up $1000 for emergencies. And then, I unexpectedly left my job a few weeks later. Because I left my job without another one lined up, I lived off my emergency savings until I got another job a little while later.
Unfortunately, after I started my new job, it took a few months for me to finally decide “Okay, I’m going all-in and committing to this baby steps stuff.” Once I finally reached that point, I had to tap into my emergency fund for true emergencies, so the ball was slow to roll for a little while.
