7 PF experts, no waiting: Join us for a Tweetchat.Posted by Donna Freedman on May 6, 2013 | 6 comments
Got money questions? One of them might win you a copy of Liz Weston’s updated and revised Deal with Your Debt.
She’s hosting one heck of a Tweetchat on Thursday, May 9, and will be giving away several copies of the book to folks who submit questions ahead of time (more on that in a minute).
Even if you don’t need the book, surely you know someone who does.
Weston, aka “the Internet’s No. 1 personal finance expert,” has lassoed quite the stable of PF experts for the chat. I’m honored to be joining the lineup of:
- J.D. Roth, formerly of Get Rich Slowly and now of More Than Money.
- Mary Hunt of Debt Proof Living
- MP Dunleavey formerly of MSN Money and Daily Worth
- Steve Rhode, the Get Out of Debt Guy
- Gary Foreman of The Dollar Stretcher
She writes twice a week for MSN Money and her “Money Talk Q&A” column is syndicated nationwide, from the Los Angeles Times to Stars and Stripes. Weston has appeared on The Today Show, NBC Nightly News, CNBC Power Lunch, and Dr. Phil, and contributes regularly to NPR’s “Marketplace Money.”
But for me, Liz will always be my former podmate at the Anchorage Daily News and the person who convinced me to get my first professional massage. Bless her heart.
Did someone say “free book”?
You can ask questions during the chat. However, if you ask them ahead of time you’ll be in the running for one of those free books. The publisher, FT Press (an imprint of Pearson) will pick a few questioners at random to get the freebie.
Send your questions in advance to @FTPress or email firstname.lastname@example.org. And if you don’t win? Use the coupon code FTPF to get 50% off all personal finance titles from May 9 to May 16.
What kind of money questions? All kinds of money questions: debt repayment, credit scores, college funds, how to save for retirement and just about anything else you want to know.
We’ll be answering questions starting at 2 p.m. Use the hashtag #FTPersonalFinance. The publisher has its own Twitter Chat Room to help you keep track of the goings-on.
See you there, I hope.
