All FinCon Speakers ⋆ [FinCon]
Big logo

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: Success Without Going Viral: The Benefit of Growing at Your Own Pace

Success Without Going Viral: The Benefit of Growing at Your Own Pace

“Why isn’t my podcast/YouTube channel/blog more successful?”

“Why don’t I have more followers?”

“Shouldn’t I be farther ahead?”

Nearly everyone has these thoughts run through their minds, but why do we force such high expectations and put so much pressure on ourselves?

Chris Browning is the host of the award-winning podcast Popcorn Finance and a weekly finance expert on NBCLX and his growth has been far from rapid.

In this Big Idea Talk, Chris will dive into the comparison trap that we all find ourselves in and share how to ignore the noise and find contentment in creating and growing at your own pace.

BIG IDEA: What's Your Integrity Worth

What's Your Integrity Worth

With all of the content being created in the financial space across all mediums and platforms, it’s no wonder that people aren’t sure who to trust or where to turn for accurate information and objective advice.

In this Big Idea talk, consumer finance expert, Radio Hall of Fame inductee, and #1 New York Times best-selling author Clark Howard will talk about the importance of maintaining integrity in the creation process. Clark will offer up his thoughts on:

  • Earning and maintaining the trust of your audience
  • The importance of transparency with endorsements, sponsors, and advertisers
  • Why going viral does not equal success if it’s at the expense of your integrity
  • Key things to consider when creating a piece of financial content

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

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.
