We couldn’t be more excited today! Later this afternoon we’re flying to Charlotte, NC for FinCon 2015. FinCon is a four-day conference of personal finance professionals. This is its sixth year and The Debt Free Guys’ first year.
FinCon is billed as “a peer conference for the money media community”. Its mission is ” to support the movement that is reaching millions of people with a positive money message.” It’s probably not hard to figure that we’re both very passionate about this topic. I mean, it’s why we do this.
Due to our own financial struggles and the tenuous economy since 2008, it’s apparent that there aren’t enough financial professionals reaching out to everyday Americans to help them with their personal finances. Schools, businesses and governments don’t value teaching personal money management. The Debt Free Guys do. FinCon does.
Over these four days, we’ll be attending a few keynote speeches, many seminars and participating on a panel discussion. Yes, someone thinks it’s a good idea to put us on stage. All of these educational opportunities are designed to challenge our thinking on personal finance, help us grow as personal finance professionals, polish us as writers and be better business managers.
No doubt the educational opportunities will be valuable. Even more exciting for us is meeting old friends in the personal finance space, making new friends, and generally networking with like-minded individuals.
All of this will make us better and help us provide our readers with more valuable help, guidance and content, whether via our blog, videos, webinars or books. We, also, expect that this will help us run a better business so that we can devote 100 percent of our time to our passion.
Keep up with our adventures on the Debt Free Guys FinCon page, Facebook page and Twitter feed. We’ll share a recap of our most exciting moments and most valuable learnings in a recap on Wednesday, September 30th.
Until then, wish us well.
