Talking About Money with Friends: A #TomorrowTalk Recap

This past Thursday, we once again gathered on Twitter to discuss why we Americans don't talk about money with our friends (and why that can really hurt us!) Our guest, Kara from Bravely, hosts personal finance events in the Austin area and beyond — we were so thrilled to have her join us for a topic close to her heart.

Below we share some of our favorite findings from our participants — to see all of the discussion, click here! #TomorrowTalk happens on the third Thursday of every month, and we can't wait to see you in June!
