7. We watched Playing with FIRE together!

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.

Playing with FIRE follows 35 year old Scott Rieckens, his wife Taylor, and their toddler Jovie as they embark on a year-long odyssey to understand the rules of this sub-culture and test their willingness to reject the standard narrative of adult life, which basically prescribes: “Go to college, take out tons of student loans, buy a new car, take on a mortgage, buy another car and lots more stuff you don’t need, then work for 40+ years to pay for it all. If you’re lucky you might be able to retire at 65 and not have to live on beans.

8. Don’t take it from us! Listen in as one EconoMe attendee talks about her experience at the conference.

Brenda Olmos gives her take on what it was like to attend The EconoMe Conference on March 7, 2020 at The University of Cincinnati.
