I’m thrilled to announce that Pat Flynn, creator of the ultra-popular (and helpful) Smart Passive Income brand, will be our opening keynote speaker at #FinCon13, which is being held in St. Louis on October 17-20.
If you’re not already familiar with Pat, you should know that he’s one of the most successful and most transparent online entrepreneurs (something that Forbes recently pointed out). Pat’s YouTube channel is a wealth of information and his podcast, recently featured in the New York Times, has been downloaded over 2.5 million times.
Pat is Excited to be Back at FinCon
Pat and financial blogging go way back. Back at #FinCon11, Pat gave a talk entitled, “How to Stand Out of the Crowd“.
Since that time, Pat has gone on to do many other public speaking gigs and I’ve had the pleasure of seeing his recent talk at NMX. He just keeps getting better, folks.
I asked Pat why he was excited to return to FinCon (after having missed last year’s conference due to the birth of his daughter) and here’s what he had to say:
“I’m jazzed to come back to FinCon. [#FinCon11] was life-changing for me, and I’ve been hooked on public speaking ever since… I’m also excited because I remember how amazing the [financial blogging] community was at #FinCon11 and even though I’ve spoken a number of times since then, it’s still my favorite conference. My first love, if you will.”
Pat, I can tell you that we’re just as excited to have you back, and we’re excited to see what you have to share with us to kick-off our #FinCon13 experience.
