M&M 60: First Timer’s Guide to FinCon [Bonus Content: Ignite with Eric Rosenberg]

Never been to FinCon before? We’ve compiled a First Timer’s Guide just for you.

Today we speak with Nick True who runs the First Timer Orientation. He talks about what to bring to #FinCon18 and what to leave behind. He stresses the importance of utilizing the FinCon app and Slack channels to connect with others at the event.

As a bonus, we spend a couple minutes with Eric Rosenberg who organizes #IgniteFinCon. He shares the unique format of Ignite talks and the reasons attendees love this fun event.

  • The beginners Guide to Fincon was helpful. I just have one question: What is Fincon?

    It is never explained in the Pod cast. A lot of reverences to Fincon but no explanation of what it is. Seems like a basic concept since the intended audience has never attended.


    • ComiCon is for Comic Book fans. FinCon is a convention for those of us who geek out on Personal Finance. FinCon = Financial Convention. The audience is loaded with a lot of financial bloggers, podcasters, and professional speakers who teach the subject of money.
