So tomorrow I embark on adventure! (Ok, another one…)
A few years ago, I first heard about FinCon, a conference in the USA where money nerds, and finance bloggers unite, and I figured I just had to be a part of that!… sometime.
I’m all about learning how to create more amazing content for my online platforms, and how to best promote this valuable information to reach my audience with marketing techniques, branding and networking. I’d also love to pick up a few tips on pod-casting and interview some of the amazing people in my upcoming book Financial Secrets Revealed in a series. There’s always so much to learn!
This year, the conference is being held in Dallas, Texas, meaning I’m taking one of the longest flights ever to get there! A couple of years ago, this was a 17.5 hour flight and the longest flight on earth! (Sydney – Dallas) It’s now 15.5 hours long and has been pipped by an Auckland – Dubai trip, with more routes being offered that will beat that again in the coming year.
There’s a contingent of a few Aussies I know from the financial services profession, from advisers to product providers, who are also heading over and we’re sure to be picking up some amazing tips and sharing ideas amongst ourselves as well. We might even fit in a a basketball game! I hear the Philadelphia 76ers are playing the Dallas Mavericks while we’re there…
We’ve downloaded and signed up on the app, introduced ourselves and are ready to roll. One more sleep and I’m off!
Now, I’m no stranger to long haul flights but would love to hear any tips you have for how you manage to stay sane onboard… and if there’s anything you’d love me to ask the amazing presenters and sharing crew at FinCon too.
