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’re bringing 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.
This full day event includes 2 sessions of provocative speakers, a screening of the new documentary Playing with FIRE, networking with financially minded individuals, and a rockin’ after party at The Woodward Theater.
Whether you are well on your way to financial independence, still struggling with debt, or a student about to launch your career, we’ve curated 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.
