Hello, everyone. FinCon is only a couple of days away. This will be my second time attending the conference. I’m really excited to link up with my fellow bloggers and see what they’ve been up to. There are over 1200 people registered for the conference this year. If you’re going this year, here are ten people that you should meet.
Philip Taylor: PT is the founder of FinCon. He is a CPA and the owner of the site PTMoney. His website helps you learn how to fix your finances.
Sandy Smith: Sandy is the founder of the site Yes I Am Cheap. She paid off $50,000 worth of the debt in 2 years. She is the queen of selling things on Amazon.
Michelle Schroeder-Gardner: Michelle blogs at Making Sense of Cents. She paid off $40,000 worth of student loan debt within seven months. I’ve been reading her website for nearly four years. She’s one of the reasons started blogging. Last month she made over $90,000 in blog income.
Jason Vitug: Jason is the founder of Phroogal which is a website that helps individuals make better decisions about their finances. For the last two years, he’s traveled around the United States promoting financial wellness. The final stop will be this Wednesday in San Diego.
Tai & Talaat McNeely: Tai & Talaat are America’s number 1 money couple. Their site is called His & Her Money. In my opinion, they have one of the best financial podcasts out there. They talk to people that are either currently or have paid off a significant amount of debt. For someone that’s currently doing that, the podcasts keep me motivated.
J. Money: J. Money is the owner of Budgets are Sexy which is a blog that focuses on personal finance and freedom. He’s done quite a few hustles over the year to make extra money such as selling things on Craigslist.
Pat Flynn: Pat Flynn runs Smart Passive Income which is a site that teaches you how to run online businesses and make passive income. He also hosts a podcast that I’ve been listening to for a few years.
Latisha Styles: Latisha is the owner of Young Finances. The site goes over the basics of investing, budgeting, and credit tips for young professionals.
Melanie Lockert: Melanie is a freelance writer and the owner of the site Dear Debt. There is a section on her site called the Dear Debt Letter Project, which features people writing letters where they are breaking up to debt. Those letters are POWERFUL. Check some of them out when you can.
Tonya Rapley: Tonya is the owner of My Fab Finance. Her site is geared to help women break the cycle of living paycheck to paycheck.
Bonus: Michelle Jackson: Michelle runs The Shop My Closet Project which is a site that helps people pay off debt and reach their goals. This is one of my favorite sites to visit. Michelle keeps it real. She shares her ups and downs with her readers. I respect that because I still struggle with things at times.
