The American Dream originated as an ideal where every person has the right to pursue his or her own idea of happiness. EconoMe is a conference about reclaiming this right!
The EconoMe Conference has roots in the FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early) which is a lifestyle movement with the goal of financial freedom.
We bring together leading experts from the FIRE movement to guide us in questioning our assumptions about happiness, freedom, and prosperity through the lens of personal finance.
“EconoMe provides dynamic speakers on financial independence as well as networking opportunities to link you with folks with similar interests. It’s like reading and listening to a month’s worth of blogs/podcasts all in one day!” says an attendee from EconoMe 2020.
Why attend an event about financial freedom when you can easily educate yourself with all the amazing free resources online?
1. Community matters when you decide to take an unconventional path. EconoMe gives you the opportunity to surround yourself with an engaged community of people who are doing incredible things with their finances.
2. Financial independence starts in your mind. You must believe it’s possible to increase your income, reduce your expenses, and invest the difference. You must also customize your financial plan to align with your values as well as your unique set of skills, circumstances, and preferences. Exposing yourself to others who have crafted their own version of the American Dream provides inspiration for you to see the endless possibilities when it comes to your finances.
Whether you are well on your way to financial independence, still struggling with debt, or a student about to launch your career, we’re committed to curating amazing thought provoking content for you.
We believe happiness comes from freedom, creativity, and
community. We subscribe to a new American Dream that
doesn’t include excessive material possessions, conveniences, and money. We want more self directed time, more mental space, and more connection with the people we love.
Resourcefulness is gratifying. Effort is the spice of life. Sharing is caring. We are not consumerist suckas. We DIY, we optimize, we cook amazing food. We believe happiness is less about pleasure and much more about the expansion of possibility. We tap into the incredible abundance that surrounds us.
