This introductory episode is about the Economic Rockstar podcast, why it was launched and who it is for. My name is Frank Conway and I will also tell you a little bit about me personally and where you can find me (


In this episode, I share with you my journey into podcasting and why I chose an economics and finance educational podcast. I also share with you the influencers in my life recently who help make this a reality for me: John Lee Dumas of Entrepreneur on Fire, Pat Flynn of Smart Passive Income and AskPat, Jaime Tardy of Eventual Millionaire, Elaine Watt of Holiday Let Success and Mike and Izabela Russell of Music Radio Creative.


I also share the thinking behind my tagline 'Connecting Brilliant Minds in Economics and Finance' with inspiration coming from Mark Twain and Seth Godin.


This episode breaks down what other episodes are going to be like. We will have great guests - economists, financial analysts and inspirational business leaders - share their work, ideas and beliefs about what interests them in the world of economics and finance.
