FinCon 2016 Review

So, last month was my very first FinCon, which is an annual conference for financial bloggers. Because this year’s conference was held in my city, I bought my ticket on a whim, and I’m very happy that I did.

Not only did I gain a lot of helpful information about blogging, but I also met a lot of new friends and was heartily welcomed into the personal finance community. Seriously, folks – FinCon is like the family reunion of a lifetime. I had such a great time that I even bought my ticket already for next year.

If you haven’t heard of FinCon or you’re deciding whether or not you should go next year, I put together a video (down below) that will hopefully help you answer some questions (but, warning: I might be partially biased).

Did you go to FinCon this year or are you going next year? Let me know down in the comments below – I would love to connect with you!

That’s all for now, folks – until next time, enjoy your week!
