A new year often brings new resolutions. Some people focus on health and fitness. Others pick up a new hobby or take classes to move up the corporate ladder. And then there’s the financial resolutions: reducing debt, paying off student loans, saving for a mortgage, improving credit scores. New Year’s resolutions are much like a reset button, an opportunity for a fresh start.
We here at The Zebra and Quoted have some resolutions of our own, including the launch of our new #ZebraChat. Starting January 2017, we’ll host a monthly Twitter chat to discuss personal finance, insurance, tech, auto industry trends, and more! We’ll invite guests to share their subject matter expertise and give their insights on the monthly topic.
Here are the details of January’s #ZebraChat:
When: Tuesday, Jan. 10 at 2 pm central time

For example: If you’re responding to Q1, you might reply:

It’s that easy!
After the chat, we’ll share a post recapping the conversation and include quotes from participants, too.
So mark your calendars! We look forward to discussing your New Year’s financial resolutions.
