About The Event

EconoMe speakers will guide us in questioning our assumptions about happiness, freedom, and prosperity through the lens of personal finance.

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 one day 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.

Attendees can expect a full day of programing including 2 sessions of provocative speakers, an opportunity to screen a new documentary about the FIRE movement called Playing with Fire and an after party.

What is an Economeist?

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.
