Join us on this rollercoaster ride of financial journey as we discuss the FIRE movement and how do we get to a better place financially! Dr. Diania Merriam Breaks it down and explains how.
Diania Merriam is the founder of The EconoMe Conference, an event centered around financial independence, also known as the "Ted Talks" of the FIRE movement. She's also the host of the popular podcast Optimal Finance Daily where she narrates articles from the best personal finance blogs on the planet.
After getting out of $30k of debt in 11 months, she used her newfound financial freedom to negotiate a remote working arrangement with her employer, take a 2 month sabbatical to walk 500 miles across northern Spain on the Camino de Santiago, and launch her own business.
Diania saves 60% of her income and is on track to be financially independent by the time she’s 40 years old.
