I want to take the time to welcome you to the official blog of the Fuel Your Influence (FYI) Conference. (You knew we’d have a blog, didn’t ya. We are bloggers after all!)
I’m Jenny Finke, the Fuel Your Influence Conference founder and event host, and I’m excited to welcome you to this site where you can learn more information about this exciting day-long event. I will update this site with information as it becomes available – including our final list of speakers and sponsors supporting our wonderful upcoming event.
In Denver, I have had the pleasure of running The Denver Bloggers Club for nearly three years. I have planned dozens of professional learning and networking events for our members, and have enjoyed watching this blogging community come alive and thrive like nobody’s business.
I am so grateful to each member of our club, as they are unafraid to share their strategies and tactics for success and they are open to helping out their fellow bloggers in need. Watching this kind of community blossom has been an honor and privilege for me. While I’ve played a small part in facilitating these connections and growth opportunities, the members have done the majority of the hard work by showing up and making meaningful connections with one another. Because everyone contributes to this group, it is success. It’s as simple as that!
The FYI Conference is extension of what we’ve already been doing in Denver – learning together, helping each other grow, and showcasing the power of our collective influence. The only difference is I’m bringing in the kinds of experts and speakers that are often found at large blogging conferences, which are often cost-prohibitive to bloggers due to travel expenses and time away from home. No need to travel – I’m bringing the learning opportunities to YOU!
MY BIGGEST FEAR in planning this event is will people show up?
Will they pay to attend this event, after all, my monthly events are free?
This extraordinary event is not free and there’s a reason for that. We are sourcing a beautiful private space to host our 100+ attendees and we need to cover the costs of meals, materials and speaker fees for a FULL DAY. Our generous sponsors will cover a lot of the costs – but I really need the Denver blogging community to step up and invest in themselves by supporting the beautiful experience and opportunity at hand. An investment in yourself is much-deserved! Don’t let this opportunity go to waste.
I hope you’ll join me for this day-long learning event and the opportunity to fuel your influence like never before. Get ready to grow your blog and influence, Colorado!
