I attend one or two new (to me) events each year – just to keep things fresh. 🙂
Before I go to a new event, however, I like to understand what it’s all about and game plan how I’ll make the most of it.
I’ve heard from several FinConners that they’re interested in the new Financial Freedom Summit, but they’re not quite sure how to approach it. So I figured I would take a moment here to share my thoughts on how I’d approach the Summit as a FinConner.
What is the Financial Freedom Summit?
The Financial Freedom Summit is for any individual interested in pursuing financial freedom.
Whether you are looking to start your financial journey or are already well on your way and helping others, you won’t want to miss this event. The Financial Freedom Summit kicks off on May 1, 2020, and runs through May 3 in St. Louis.
As a FinConner, you understand that money is a tool to live a life you love. That’s all the more reason that the Financial Freedom Summit is right for you. You’ll leave inspired and armed with tactics to turn your plans for your brand and yourself into reality.
Plus, you can help us cultivate a new community full of Summiters who are ready to change their own lives.
Here’s how you, an unabashed money nerd, can start to gear up for the first-ever Financial Freedom Summit.
Why You Should Attend the Financial Freedom Summit
The Financial Freedom Summit isn’t just for content creators, but it has been designed with you in mind. As a creator interested in achieving financial freedom yourself and in sharing that message with your audience, you need to put the Financial Freedom Summit on your calendar.
1. Improve Your Financial Life
Finances are a lifelong journey. Perhaps you’ve already found a way to use money to unlock a life you love. Maybe you are trying to move a mountain of debt or figuring out how to start. No matter where you are on your financial journal, we all have room to grow. Growing together takes you farther than you can ever imagine.
2. Form New Relationships
The Financial Freedom Summit is an opportunity to spend three days with 1,000+ like-minded individuals. What does that mean? It’s the ideal opportunity to form new relationships focused on common goals and mutual interests. Bond with other creatives and like-minded individuals as you take in sessions, listen to speakers and connect during downtime.
3. Strengthen FinCon Friendships
If you’ve attended FinCon in the past, you know what an exhilarating event it is. You also know how downright depressing the return home can be. After all, a year is a long time to wait to cross paths with fellow FinConners again.
The Financial Freedom Summit is changing that. This event, co-organized by the FinCon team, is the perfect opportunity to catch up with FinConners midway through the year smack dab in the middle of the country.
4. Bond with Your Own Audience
As a content creator, you’ve built an audience. Here is your opportunity to grow with them. Take time during the event to host a meet up with your own audience while in St. Louis. The hotel and surrounding spaces have plenty of ideal locations, whether you want to grab a coffee, drinks, or a bite to eat.
5. Create Content
Maximize your time at the Financial Freedom Summit by creating content on site. You’ll have the opportunity to record a podcast, curate a roundup article, and make a vlog or video interview. Just like FinCon, you can team up with other content creators.
At the Financial Freedom Summit, you’ll also be able to collaborate with people who closely mirror–or even include!–your own audience. That means the content you make will be an excellent reflection of your audience.
6. Meet New Brand Partners
While the Financial Freedom Summit is not FinCon 2.0, it is important to note that the Summit was designed with creatives in mind. Sponsors and brands will be exhibiting during the Summit.
Be prepared to share information about your brand; you might even bring a media kit. The Summit is an opportunity to establish new lines of communication that can lay the foundation for exciting partnerships to come.

7. Explore St. Louis
St. Louis is known as the Gateway to the West. But St. Louis isn’t just a stopping point to get somewhere, it’s a destination all of its own. Situated in the heart of the country, it is an ideal crossroads to get together with friends new and old and do some exploring.
The Summit venue, Hilton St. Louis at the Ballpark hotel, is steps away from the Arch. If you’re looking for green space, there’s Forest Park and the Missouri Botanic Garden. There’s also the City Museum, the Saint Louis Zoo, and Busch Stadium.
St. Louis is also home to a booming craft beer and microbrewery scene. With top eateries from fast-casual to formal, foodies will rejoice here, too. To see what else you can do while you’re at the Financial Freedom Summit, visit www.explorestlouis.com.
