Like-minded people enjoy each other's company

A good friend of mine has collected beer cans for 4 and a half many years. He began in his teenagers (yeah, instances had been totally different then!)

Just a little over per week in the past he went to his first CANvention because the Nineteen Eighties — or because the youthful folks say, the “late 1900s” haha!

These breweriana collectors are his folks. They’re folks he can geek out with and never have to clarify a factor to anybody as a result of he isn’t a weirdo when he hangs out with these folks.

Trying to find my folks as a blogger

I have been running a blog right here (generally extra persistently than different instances) for over 17 years. The matters I’ve coated focus on cash normally: frugal dwelling, private finance, investing, taxes, profession, retirement, and earning money.

I started the weblog primarily as a spark from a good friend who was a terrific salesman, a facet hustler, and a deal finder. He pointed me to a few locations to purchase airline tickets for lower than the going worth and launched me to click-through rebate websites.

What ultimately obtained me began, and what obtained me hooked, was that I not solely might publish simply matters I had some curiosity in however that I might additionally receives a commission for doing so.

Running a blog grew to become a facet hustle of mine, and it was the facet hustle a part of it that excited me extra in order that the cash matters themselves.

Aspect hustles and cash nerds …

I’ve attended FinCon numerous instances over the previous 11 years. I’ve met lots of of nice folks over these visits and preserve some incredible friendships from all of it. It began in 2011 as a family-like get-together of all of the those that I had been running a blog with for the previous few years however by no means had met in particular person. Attendance has since grown about tenfold and it completely loopy profitable.

FinCon is a gathering of “cash nerds” that geek out about every kind of cash matters: facet hustles, investments of every kind, retirement, journey hacking, FIRE (monetary independence, retire early), frugal dwelling, private finance, and every little thing in between.

Over the previous few years, although, I’ve seen my curiosity within the cash matters of non-public finance type of waning. I query whether or not I used to be ever actually keen about these matters, although I did write quite a bit about them.

I sense I am not as money-nerdy as I was with regards to many of the matters above.

My folks had been simply across the nook

What at all times me once I went to those conferences, although, was studying concerning the other ways to generate income creating content material round these matters.

And I completely cherished speaking to individuals who had been doing it! Nearly all the content material creators at FinCon had been earning money in a single — or many! — other ways, and that fascinated me.

So I loved hanging across the FinCon folks not essentially due to the cash content material itself, however as a result of these folks had an entrepreneurial spirit.

Each forms of folks relate to cash, however in a different way.

It took me till very not too long ago to appreciate this distinction. This previous weekend we met a household at a yard sale that had three totally different facet companies. One dad or mum was a Thirty-One advisor and a Stampin’ Up! advisor, and the opposite offered sports activities playing cards and magazines on eBay.

I used to be super-excited to speak with each of them.

Entrepreneurial spirit. These are my folks!
