FinCon15 Was Good, Great, Grand, Wonderful
I have been holding off on writing my FinCon15 experience post as I look around the blogger world and see so many great stories and people they have met. It’s all true, I enjoyed every minute of FinCon15, I met so many people and introduced myself as Even Steven Money to the surprise and “aha” moment from their faces finally knowing I am indeed a real person, not a logo. Besides the fact that I woke up sick from what I can only assume was my body screaming for more FinCon, I shared this message via twitter to everyone’s approval.

I have been going back and forth in my mind what is the next step for Even Steven Money and today I do not know the answer, but I have had a few things stick in my head over the last couple days. Will from 1st Quarter Finance asked me what my vision for Even Steven Money was? I didn’t have an answer, coming to FinCon was part of my plan to figure it all out. I listened to numerous speaker, panelists, and presenters that made me realize I needed to focus, focus, focus. Then during a live podcast I was able to listen to the madFIentist, interviewing Mr. and Mrs 1500 Days and as I watched and listened to each answer smiling and laughing at many of the comments and during that time, I realized I don’t blog for any monetary gain, I blog for the community and the people. Some of Team Financial Independence sat around watching and listening, Mr. Frugalwoods, Richmond Savers, Jim Collins, and others that enjoy a good beer and a chat about money. That’s why I started blogging to share my story, learn from the community, and show others you can go from having debt all the way to Financial Independence.
The blog is going to change and I think for the better. Expect to see longer posts that have more action and substance, expect to see more personal stories, expect to see more in depth writing, expect to see a transition from debt repayment to investing and real estate. I think the best thing I can say is expect more. This week is dedicated to gathering my thoughts and looking ahead to make a game plan. My financial world is falling into place step by step, but it was not always like that. I want to share more. For many of you out there that attended FinCon15, I am sure to expect big things in the year ahead. I can’t wait to see it all unfold in front of my very eyes.
It was great meeting all of you, each and every person went above and beyond my expectations. Thank you from Even Steven Money!
