In only 8 weeks, I will be joining 2,000+ of my best internet friends in Orlando at the Rosen Shingle Creek, site of #FinCon18. FinCon is an annual gathering of self-proclaimed Money Nerds, and I cannot wait to attend for the first time this September 26-29th. I was stoked to hear that it is going to be in Orlando this year, since I live about 3 hours away from the conference hotel and will simply drive up after work on Tuesday to attend the conference for the rest of the week. No flights required!
One of the non-money topics that I have heard about (besides evening gatherings around craft beers), is that there are a lot of free t-shirts to be had, and/or cool t-shirts that attendees have made. I do not have a brand or much in the way of design skills, but I have a few ideas for t-shirts that I am going to have printed and will wear during the conference next month! Besides, I am 99.9% certain that nobody will have t-shirts printed in my size, so if I want to participate, I’m going to BYOT (bring your own t-shirt)
Pictured above is my first t-shirt idea. It’s not really that “I Love Vermont Sax” but rather “I love VT SAX” better known as Vanguard Total Stock Market Index (Admiral shares)
Also, has anyone had shirts printed lately? I must admit, this is something that I have never had done, so I am genuinely interested to know who does great prints, on quality shirts, for reasonable prices. My 2nd t-shirt idea will remain a secret, but I definitely have to print a couple of them to give as gifts to a couple blogger friends who are attending, so I want them to be nicely done.
I don’t know that this will evolve into any kind of side hustle, but I do love the idea of trying to come up with ideas and seeing how I can make them work. Any ideas for FinCon t-shirt ideas are welcomed…
