Momtrends recently had the chance to interview Manisha Thakor, personal finance expert and founder of MoneyZen to discuss a major financial issue affecting many American families.

During the interview Manisha shared some some simple tips to establish an effective long-term plan for financial protection against these unexpected costs.
