Stop! Emergency Ahead!

Is it wise for Dave to set aside money for the debt snowball when he's in crisis mode?

QUESTION: Dave on Twitter wants to know if he should stop setting aside money for the debt snowball while in the middle of a crisis.

Dave's ANSWER: Yes, I do recommend stopping the debt snowball in the midst of a health crisis. When in the middle of an emergency, you push pause on your total money makeover, and you pile up cash.

If you are in any kind of emergency, you push pause on your Baby Steps and pile up cash. Cash is the umbrella when it rains. Anytime you're facing that, that's what you do.
