About EconoMe LLC

Diania Merriam, Chief Economeist

EconoMe LLC was formed to launch The EconoMe Conference, a one-day event at the University of Cincinnati. The EconoMe Conference has roots in the FIRE movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early) which is a lifestyle movement with the goal of financial freedom. Diania Merriam, the founder of EconoMe LLC, was motivated to start a conference after the pursuit of FIRE changed her life. After she discovered blogs like Mr. Money Mustache and Frugalwoods, as well as books such as Your Money or Your Life and The Simple Path to Wealth, she used her new found knowledge to get out of $30k of debt in 11 months. She then negotiated a remote working relationship with her employer as well as a 2-month unpaid sabbatical to walk the Camino de Santiago (a 500 mile trek across northern Spain). The FIRE movement taught Diania how to save 60% of her income and she’s on track to be financially independent before she’s 40 years old. Diania started EconoMe to make the ideas that inspired her more accessible to others.
