This week I received an email that told me I fulfilled a professional goal – getting a panel proposal accepted.

We're speaking at FINCON

I'm a huge fan of the conference Phil has created and grown so to have this be my first public speaking gig is fantastic.

What makes this opportunity even sweeter is the supportive and knowledgeable bloggers that will be on the panel.

We are all excited to be a part of this conference and want to help others any way that we can.

Elle Martinez from Couple Money speaking at FINCON 15

I want to say thank you to everyone who helped me and that especially includes all of you who are reading this site and/or listing to the podcast.


Couple Money Around the Web

Besides getting to speak at FinCon, I've been busy with some other work projects:

  • With the season, many people are thinking about getaways. If you want to travel, but don’t have the money now, I have some tips on how you can save for your next trip over at TurboTax.
  • Over on the Couple Money Podcast, I get into preparing for retirement. Learn how easy it is to start investing with an IRA. We go over how you can set up your account and choose the right investments  based on your finances and goals.
