In October, I attended the third annual Financial Blogger Conference. At FinCon, I hosted the second annual Ignite FinCon speaking event, and took to the stage for my own five minutes of glory. Enjoy!
We all have dreams. When we are young, we want to be firefighters and astronauts. As we get older, we want to be athletes and rock stars. Eventually, some of us dream of wealth, others dream of travel, some dream of retiring early, others dream of meeting Mr/Mrs right and having a family. We all dream, but what are you doing to make them come true?
At nearly a year since I became single, I have been out there giving the dating world a shot. It is a jungle out there, but I have learned some interesting stuff. Dating is complicated, but only if you over think it. There are two important factors to look at: you and your date.
I did something pretty awesome. I did something on my life list. I learned to DJ.
I am always reading a lot, and a recent topic of interest led me to look introspectively at how I carry myself and act in social situations. I have always thought of myself as a “nice guy,” but have found that being too nice can keep a guy from getting what he really wants in life.
Over the last month, I have become a part of the small community of flash mob planners in Denver. On Black Friday, I joined about thirty other Denver locals to dance the afternoon away in our first silent dance party. On Halloween, we had a pillow fight. Last month, I joined my first flash mob when we danced on light rail.
On Friday night, I had the pleasure of meeting one of my “blogger heroes.” I spent the evening with a crowd of non-conformists and Chris Guillebeau. Chris, the author of The Art of Non-Conformity blog, was here on his Art of Non-Conformity Unconventional Book Tour.
