Learning best practices for handling your money and investments is a lifelong process. That’s why I’m committed to helping people improve their financial planning. To that end, I recently contributed some insights to Jamie Catmull of GOBanking Rates about the top money skills you need to learn in your 30s and 40s.

These money skills insights include:

  • Always invest in yourself first. Start investing in yourself by treating your retirement savings like a bill you pay.
  • Maintain an emergency fund worth three to six months of your average expenses.
  • And make sure this emergency fund is liquid so that you can utilize it at any moment.
