FinCon is a conference for content creators in the finance industry, and it moves its location within the US every year.
It was my first time in Orlando! The hotel was nice.
The best part of the conference is the people that you meet. Here’s a group of us getting dinner and drinks!
(You’ll notice that I only have a little dessert because it was my second dinner that night. The networking opportunities were incredible!)
This is the Digital Honey list of a few people that I met at FinCon that you may want to follow.
