My wife and I had a great couple weeks of vacation but it is good to be back in Ohio. We really enjoyed the vacation and were glad we took it, as it was something we both needed. In episode #6 of the podcast I shared how my wife and I came up with our budget for our trip. Well, the results are in and we are both very pleased. Thanks so much for holding us accountable and allowing us to share the details with you.
Our vacation started out great in Nashville, Tennessee where I had the pleasure of attending Jon Acuff’s Quitter Conference. On a prior podcast I reviewed the book Quitter,but today i am going to share my review of the conference. The Quitter Conference is more than just deciding to do something you love and quitting your J-O-B right on the spot. Instead it is developing a plan to work on your dream job while still being productive at your day job.
I found a lot of parallels at the conference that can be applied to your personal finances. I’m going to share those with you today as well as talk about the conference, what I enjoyed about it, what they could improve and what I am going to be doing in the future to apply what I’ve learned into the podcast, blog, and my coaching. In addition, I also share why it is important for each of us to attend seminars and conferences like this and why you always need to continue to invest in yourself.
