Jeff Goins Giving the Opening Keynote at #FinCon14
The opening act at #FinCon14, being held September 18-20 in New Orleans, will be Mr. Jeff Goins. He’ll be giving an inspirational talk on community building that you won’t want to miss.
Jeff is new to the FinCon Community, but many of you I know are aware of his blog, books, and helpful resources for writers looking to grow their online influence and income. He’s an impressive writer’s writer. I’m excited and honored to invite him to the FinCon stage and have him help set the tone for this year’s event.
