Instructor: Hannah Cole

Description: There's been talk of a looming recession, and seemingly much to fear: inflation, interest rates, bank failures. But do you need to panic? In short: no. Recessions are a normal part of the economic cycle, and they can actually open doors both for investing and for growing your small business. But it's important to address the scary parts, and know how to mitigate them. Join me for an empowering class on shoring up your personal finances to stay protected during an economic downturn, and to learn ways that you can position your business for surviving and even thriving in a recession. 

We'll cover:

  • emergency savings 
  • personal finance basics
  • inflation
  • adjusting your quarterly tax payments
  • investing: how not to panic 
  • hidden opportunities 
  • why feelings matter
  • the opportunities hiding in a recession
