First Timer Perspective at FinCon

I just got back from attending my first FinCon conference in Orlando, Florida. I’m still buzzing from all of the excitement! There I met many influencers in the personal finance space including Yasmine Bisumber. Yasmine and I connected instantly – we are both passionate about personal finance and this was our first FinCon conference.

What is FinCon?

FinCon is a 4-day conference where digital content creators can connect with each other, brands, and media. At the conference over 2,000 attendees learned how to make better content, reach their audience, and make more money.

FinCon is the ideal conference for bloggers, podcasters, YouTubers, and influencers as well as media companies and brands like financial advocacy organizations, FinTech companies, banks, credit unions, and more. It is truly where money and media meet (conference tagline). The conference includes sessions, workshops, events, keynotes, meetups, exhibits, and tons of networking opportunities. 

Even if you’re not a personal finance content creator, I still recommend attending – that’s how valuable I think it is!

In this episode we cover:

  • Our top goals for attending FinCon18
  • Tips for new FinCon attendees
  • Our favorite things about FinCon
  • How to connect with attendees
  • What we learned that has transformed our businesses
