Big Ideas are short, powerful talks celebrating the good, innovative work being done in the personal finance community.

For #FinCon22 we’re shaking up  the Main Stage structure to include more Big Idea talks! Instead of featuring keynote speakers, each of the three Main Stage sessions will include multiple Big Idea talks. (Think TED talks for Money Nerds.) 

This format gives you the opportunity to be both inspired and challenged by creators who have built their businesses and platforms right here in our own space.

BIG IDEA: Getting Personal to Profit

Getting Personal to Profit

We all have that tug between our work and our personal lives, and the lines are getting blurrier. But as content creators, if we really want to connect with our audience it pays to get personal.

In this talk Bobbi Rebell will share how she kept a distance from her audience as a global business TV anchor, never sharing anything personal. But when it came to developing her Financial Grownup brand and her book Launching Financial Grownups, her willingness to share her family’s experiences- including her own failures- led to her profits as an independent author and content creator.

Creating Content that Knocks Out Objections: How to Get to the Heart of Your Audience’s False Beliefs & Debunk It Through Your Content

As creators we are often told to deliver value, but what does that mean?

Many will lean on how-to content and wonder why they are not growing their audience or their business. Before you can teach a person how to solve a problem, they must acknowledge not only the problem, but their long-held beliefs related to the problem.

In this Big Idea Talk, Delyanne Barros, Founder of Delyanne the Money Coach LLC and podcast host of CNN's Diversifying, will talk about the importance of addressing these limiting beliefs, their origin, and why knocking them down is vital to reaching those you seek to help.

BIG IDEA: How to Bullet-Proof Your Online Business

How to Bullet-Proof Your Online Business

As creators, how do we decide what to create each day? Whether we are writing an article, producing a video or recording a podcast, every day we decide what topic to cover and how to cover it.

On any given day, how we make that decision may not seem very important. Over time, however, that simple, seemingly insignificant question--'What do I create today?'--defines both us and our online business.

For over 15 years Rob has seen blogs and other online businesses come and go. Some have flourished, while others have stagnated or completely shut down. The difference comes down to how they answered that simple question--'What will I create today?’

Rob will share the three guiding principles you can use to bullet-proof your online business while helping those who read, listen to and watch your content.
