The importance of emergency funds for the self employed

We all know just how important emergency funds are to protect yourself against any future financial headwinds that life may throw at you. After spending most of my working life as a self employed person though, I honestly feel that emergency funds should be a huge consideration in future financial planning. Perhaps even more so than they are for employed people. I say this because of the increased risk that you’ll need to dip into it should you fall ill or if work should dry up for a while.

Is it wrong to profit from charity?

Hey everyone, hope you’re having a great weekend.

Here’s how it started.

It’s Good to Give + Movember Giveaway

Hey everyone, hope you’re having a relaxing Saturday! I can guess I won’t be with the two little ones running around the place, time to head out into the countryside! Anyway although we have some other things I need to mention I also wanted to use today’s post to talk a little bit about giving.

On Money Bulldog we tend to talk a lot about making money, investing money, saving money and spending money but I have to hold my hands up and say that often times the premise of giving gets lost along the way, something I’m not proud of.
