Nicole Walters, Founder of The Monetized Life, joins Your Cheddar host Tim Stenovec at FinCon to talk about pursuing your financial freedom and monetizing what you're already good at.

Walters had been blogging about her financial journey for about 5 years before realizing she could quit her job and be her own boss. She resigned from her career live on Periscope and hasn't looked back! She was able to do that because she already had multiple streams of revenue...which is something she stresses the importance of. For example, if you're a good stylist and all your friends compliment you, start a consulting firm on the side and book appointments for a fee.

Plus, Walters started building an audience on Periscope but she talks about the importance of live video in general. She utilizes Facebook Live to connect with her fans and clients. The biggest key to growing an audience? Walters says it authenticity. People want to see all your different personalities, which sometimes means your flaws as well.
