Everyone has a unique set of circumstances, skills, and preferences that require a customized financial plan. The diversity in the EconoMe speaker line up demonstrates that there isn’t a “right way” to pursue FIRE. Check out all the speeches from EconoMe on our YouTube channel!
Personal finance is personal! There are so many reasons why people pursue financial independence and we had the opportunity to share with one another during this interactive activity.
Not only did we learn from our awesome speakers, but we learned from each other! We discussed real estate, investing, FI healthcare options, entrepreneurship, finding our tribe, and optimizing credit card points.
Community matters, especially when you decide to take an unconventional path like the pursuit of FIRE. EconoMe is designed to help you make new friends… and who better to show you how than our Chief Economeist’s best Bud.
Playing with Fire showcases a radical subculture known as FIRE, that embrace frugality and financial optimization to achieve financial independence. Follow one family’s journey to acquire the one thing that money can’t buy: a simpler — and happier— life.
As if EconoMe wasn’t already a party, we closed it out with an epic after party at a unique venue downtown. Drinks were flowin’, photo booth was poppin’, live music was bumpin’, and we all got to share with each other our favorite moments from the day!
Is there any doubt that Cincinnati, the lowest cost of living metro area in the US, is also THE BEST city to pursue financial independence? We got to see first hand what makes this city so great via a 3 hour walking tour. We also learned more about Cincinnati’s rich beer history.
“I was surprised by the diversity, impressed by the turnout… there was a lot of attention to detail that was so thoughtful and went a long way… it’s so nice to be around people who are open about finances, it’s like a breath of fresh air!”.
