🧠 How big should my emergency fund be?

Greetings from Washington, D.C.!

I type this while I’m attending Foolfest, which is an in-person investor conference hosted by The Motley Fool.

I LOVE attending these type of events. I get to have great conversations with dozens of fellow investors, including several authors like Morgan Housel, Annie Duke, and Michael Mauboussin.

Conferences can be amazing. Next week, Brian Stoffel and I will be at Fincon in Orlando. If you’ll be there, let us know.

In other news, Brian and I have been blown away by the number of sign-ups to our course Financial Statements Explained Simply! Thanks to everyone who decided to join already. We think this will be our best cohort yet.

If you’d like to secure the biggest discount that we will offer, use the code EARLY250. This code expires on 11:59 PM EST on September 3rd.

One Piece of Timeless Content:

I discovered Vishal Khandelwal earlier this year and I’ve come to love the content that he produces. He has written a trio of books that make it easy to understand the mental models of investing & life.

Safal wrote a great short article on advice he’d give to a young investor. It’s well worth a few minutes of your time.

One Twitter Thread:

Being a parent is the toughest job I’ve ever had. I’m always wondering what battles I should fight and which ones I should simply let go.

I found this viral thread by David Morris to be very helpful in figuring out which is which. If you’re a parent, it’s worth reading.

One Resource:

All my life I’ve underestimated how powerful stories can be. I now firmly believe that storytelling is superpower. Thankfully, it’s a superpower that can be learned. Nathan Baugh has a great free newsletter that breaks down the tactics that the world’s greatest storytellers use to make an impact. This one about Weaponizing a Story is worth checking out.
