It’s September! We’re kicking off our annual September Sabbatical by airing three speeches from the EconoMe Conference, a three-day gathering of FIRE enthusiasts (Financial Independence, Retire Early).
You’ll hear from a man who retired at age 43, reflecting on the “lies” told about early retirement.
You’ll hear from a professionally successful Millennial who questions what you should do if you achieve all your goals, but you’re still not happy.
And you’ll hear my talk about how to save for your biggest, most audacious goals – like traveling the world – and how, counterintuitively, NOT having a budget might be the winning formula.
Today we’re sharing three talks given at the EconoMe conference, with each of these talks relating to F.I.R.E. The three discussions are:
- FI-Landia is a lie – What I Learned On My Journey To F.I.R.E., with Carl Jensen
- What If You Achieve All Your Goals But You’re Still Not Happy, with Rich Jones
- How To Never Again Say, “I Can’t Afford It”, with Paula Pant
