CCC044: #FinCon14 Road Trip


My road trip to FinCon14. As I record this episode, I’m on I49 in Louisiana on my way to New Orleans. FinCon14 is a financial bloggers conference. This is my first trip to FinCon. At this conference, bloggers and podcasters get together to socialize and build a community around helping people with their personal finance. All financial points of view are represented. I’m looking forward to making new friends in New Orleans at FinCon14.

I bought new tires before my trip to FinCon14. I discuss this during the trip as why I will be a loyal Discount Tire customer.

I also discuss a recent Wall Street Journal Article about the number of people making six figures, but filing for bankruptcy.

I also want to thank my friends Steve Stewart and Phillip Taylor for helping feel at home at my first FinCon.
