Philip Taylor aka PT is a CPA turned blogger, podcaster, and conference organizer. He created the personal finance blog PTMoney.com back in 2007, and he founded FinCon, the annual conference for "money nerds" like him, in 2011. On his journey toward financial independence, he got rid of debt, learned to live lean, saved a big percentage of his money, and eventually left his unsatisfying CPA career to pursue his entrepreneurial ventures full-time.
PT has seen the FIRE community explode from inside the larger personal finance blogging community. He wants to help foster the growth of those who are willing to share their money story through blogs, podcasts, and video. Over 2,000 people, many of whom are on the FIRE journey, now attend FinCon. PT is dedicated to making it a place for the influential members of the FIRE community to come together and share their ideas for spreading the FIRE movement.
