Event description
The Studio at TFD presents Overcoming Your Recession Fears: What To Know & How To Prepare, a workshop to help you prepare for uncertainty.

About this Event

You've probably heard a lot of talk about a "coming recession," and with how crazy 2020 has been, it's not irrational to worry about how the economy will impact your finances. The good news, though, is that there is a lot you can do right now to understand, prepare for, and overcome your fear of a recession.

Join us on Tuesday, October 27 for an interactive workshop that will bring together economist Anna Gifty and personal finance expert Erin Lowry to give you everything you need to know, from the big picture to the individual action items. Stop worrying about a recession, and start recession-proofing your finances (and your mental well-being)!

Key Takeaways:

  • An expert breakdown on what you actually need to know about recessions (vs what you can comfortably tune out)
  • A media consumption "toolbox" for understanding and unpacking economic news
  • A walkthrough on the key steps to recession-proofing your finances at any income
  • Interactive worksheets to help regain your financial confidence and buffer your finances against future upheavals
  • A live Q&A from our experts on all things recession
