Last weekend I was pouting on my sofa after the kids went to bed, stalking the FinCon2014 page, wishing I could have gotten a babysitter lined up in-time to buy the specially-priced ticket (as to stay on course!) when I somehow poked around the bottom of the page where I saw that there were being scholarships given. 5 of them! Maybe more!
What’s the worst thing that could happen? I’m told no?? I was all over that like syrup on a pancake!
Fast forward a few days to my birthday. I was en route to celebrate with some Ben & Jerry’s when I get the most awesome email from Phillip Taylor, founder of FinCon, telling me that I’ve been selected to attend on scholarship! Best birthday present ever!
You may have read my post back in April when I was seriously contemplating attending. I’m not quite as terrified you’ll find me dancing on a bar nor am I seriously worried I’ll egg on a debate just to be contrary. I’m excited to try something new, meet new people, and learn from the best. Also, New Orleans: I’ve never been.
If you’re headed to FinCon, I hope to meet you there!
