What's your money story? Today we hear fantastic stories from the phenomenal people who attend FinCon...and man, did they not disappoint. The only rule was that we couldn't know who they were ahead of time. So today we met Felicity, who tells us some great lessons about pets, real estate, and more....then we talk to Geeta, who's a high schooler on a WAY different path than most people toward financial independence. Think there's only the college path toward retirement? Geeta will give you a MUCH different approach than most kids.

Then we talk to Yinan Du from Beam. Everyone's asking, "How does Beam offer such high interest rates when banks are offering\low rates?" He answers this question AND how Beam operates on today's show.

Then we return to the FinCon from to talk to Chris from KeepThrifty. His family moved from a spacious big home to a tiny house. Why? How? He'll explain on today's show (he quit his job recently also...how's he going to afford that?). Finally we talk to financial analyst Dedra Shores, who works with individuals and small business owners to help them decipher their money situation. What SHOULD keep people up at night? Dedra fills us in. 

It was SO fun meeting these random people at FinCon '17....they have great stories and I can't wait for you to hear them.
