15 - FinCon with Philip Talyor

Philip Taylor is well known in the financial industry, and he is the founder of the largest conference for financial industry influencers, FinCon. 

Philip started a blog about his journey with money in 2007, and quickly grew his following. After seeing a need for a conference catering to his industry, he decided to take the reins and put it together.

He set his first destination to Chicago, which was a central hub to some of the other big influencers.

After having a little over 200 at his first event, he has grown it to over 1700 annual attendees!

I had the honor of attending this year's FinCon, and it was a well-oiled machine.

In this episode we talked: 

  • How Philip built a brand from an event
  • How he has involved his community to help grow to such an amazing number
  • What it takes to continually involve your sponsors and have them coming back year after year
  • Plus so much more!
