Went to San Diego recently for FinCon 2016. It’s a financial blogger conference, of which I was one of the first financial bloggers online!
This blog originally started just to track my finances and what I made. As the numbers got larger, more and more people would just copy everything I did which got frustrating, so I stopped.
However there is now a huge financial blogger community (FinCon this year was 1,000+ attendees) which is neat.
Here’s some of my memories from it:
Ate at El Puesto (twice)! They even has filet mignon tacos!
Took at ride in Pat’s Tesla X. That thing is so fast. Even though it’s a 7-seater family SUV, it can beat any Ferrari or Lamborghini to 60mph!
There were tons of cool yachts right outside the hotel:
….may have (or may have not) snuck onto a few of them:
I liked it when people organized private dinners outside the conference because it made meeting other people much easier and in a quieter and more intimate setting:
The hotel was great and had balconies and amazing views:

Went with Patrick, Noah, Jenn, Jordan to a cool taco spot in a hipster-ish area of San Diego and also coffee shop:
Being a rebel in the gym. Plz don’t rat me out to the police ;)
Another private dinner:
Hung with Steve a bunch:
A group of us took a trip to In-N-Out Burger with Jordan and a couple other peeps! I got a double with cheese and fries. I got hungry just typing that :)
Did this cool escape room thing!
Hahaha…..Noah in his room prepping for his keynote speech. He gave away $8,000 in cash + lottery tickets during the speech!
Rented bikes and went for a quick bike ride + beer:
The weather and sunsets over the San Diego Marina were ridiculously pretty:
Expert Breakout Sessions:
Pre Noah’s Keynote with PT:
Lol @ Noah sitting on the ground before waiting to go up:
Noah gave literally the best keynote speech I’ve ever seen! Really stepped it up on this one. People laughing the whole time, $8,000 + lotto tickets given out to crowd, great message, lots of concrete examples, and super funny!
