The 5 Things I Learned At My First Fincon

I just arrived home from my very first Fincon and I am inspired and exhausted at the same time. Fincon is a conference for the money media community.   I have known about Fincon since 2014 but since I had not started my blog or business, I just sat back and watched from the sidelines.  This year I was able to attend and learned so much in 4 days.  Here are 5 of the many things I learned:
