My biggest save last week was going to the Mogul X Conference for free. This conference costed $319.93 for an All Access pass and I went for free after finding a free promo code. Speakers included Suze Orman (Personal Finance & TV Show/podcast host), Scott Keyes (Founder of Scott’s Cheap Flights), and Dani Austin (Founder of Sassy Club).
