Today I’ll be doing a quick, everyday, natural makeup tutorial that will literally take you 5-8 mins. because ain’t nobody got time to spend hours on their make up in the morning. I’m one of those people who try to cram way too much into her mornings already by cooking, working out, reading, prayer and writing. While I’m going over my signature every day look I’ll also be talking about my Conference experience at Fincon which was in Dallas this year.
Four years ago I was at my 9-5 listening to a Pat Flynn podcast and he mentioned a conference called Fincon. I immediately opened a new tab to google “Fincon Conference”. I never attended a conference before and I admit it was a big investment that I had to save for and put some of it on my credit card, but it was worth every dollar. I had never been around so many inspiring and powerful people who also had a similar mission as me to help people get closer to financial freedom.
This year thanks to Jason Vitug I had the pleasure of speaking on a panel talking about the importance of side hustles with two other amazing women (Michelle + Crystal). Every year my life gets better and Fincon plays a huge role in this transformation.
It was great to be able to speak on a panel at Fincon about side hustles. It’s important to find ways to make extra money even if you have a 9-5 that you love because you just never know when your supervisor will have to call you into the office and tell you that you’re fired it’s not personal, just business. Yeah right it feels super personal how will you pay your bills?! What about your debt?! Ahhh your emergency savings has way less than it should. Building a side hustle will take a load off of your worries, there’s something powerful about being in control of your income. (Even if you start off making an extra $50 bucks a month you can use that to pay one of your small bills)
Key Video Takeaways:
David Bach was one of the key note speakers and the author of the book The Automatic Millionaire which is a book I read at least once a year. He basically invented the Latte factor. Bach’s grandmother taught him about investing when he was 7 years old. She took him to McDonald’s and said there’s 3 types of people that come here those that work here, those that eat here, and those that own the place and since then he was hooked to investing.
Nicole Walters was the closing keynote speaker if you know Nicole you know she doesn’t play when it comes to her coins and that doing things for free makes her itch lol. One big take away from her talk was that you need to use social media as a tool in your business. Your social platforms need to be leading people back to your products and services. No one care about your lunch. You need to have a strategy. If you’re not making money in your business you’re just an expensive hobby.
She also talked about the importance of knowing your customer journey.
Hearing so many great speakers and meeting so many successful business owners and bloggers they’ve inspired me to take it up a notch and lot’s of big changes will be happening in my business this year. I’m excited for progress, growth and change.
