FinCon 2017
« on: November 02, 2017, 10:50:29 AM »
I just got back from my first FinCon, and am still catching up on sleep and email. Any mustachians out there that went? I met a few, but with 1700+ people it was hard to see everyone. I would love to hear everyone's  perspective on the conference. Also if you did a write-up on it post a link so I can read it. Here is mine. I was pretty sleep deprived when I wrote this :)

I want to edit your display name on here to TheHappyPhilosopher. :)
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (occasionally) blog at AdventuringAlong.com.
You can also read my forum "Journal."

Hello, Happy Philosopher. I was also in Dallas for my first FinCon. I think I just regained equilibrium today. Whoa...that was intense and completely awesome. I think we met for a moment in a hallway. :)

I had a true LOL when I reached this line and its associated photo - "Like when you ask for change for a twenty and you are handed two rolls of quarters."

Loved your post.

Haha, it was a little too much at times. I met so many people it was hard to keep everyone straight.
