In 2011, Michelle Schroeder-Gardner started a blog called Making Sense of Cents as a fun hobby. After finding some early financial success with sponsored posts and affiliate marketing, she decided her little blog could actually become a viable business.
Fast forward to today, Michelle now makes over $1.5 million per year from her blog and continues to see massive success with her overall online-based business. Not only has she gone from $0 to $1.5 million incredibly fast, but she’s done it all in her 20’s.
This week, I’m attending FinCon. This is a conference catered to personal finance bloggers, podcasters, speakers, coaches, advisors or really anyone who has something to say about money.
Given that I like to yammer on about money and my wife can only take so much of it (bless her heart), I figured I would make the trip out to Dallas, get my learn on and meet some of my “kind”. It’s four days of money and media in the Lone Star State for me!
