The Pathless Path with Paul Millerd

In 2015, Diania Merriam discovered the Mr. Money Mustache blog about financial independence and reading it was like a refreshing punch in the face. At the time, she was living in NYC and $30k in debt. She got out of that debt in 11 months and started saving 60% of her income. This newfound grip on her finances gave her a huge boost of confidence to pursue goals that previously felt out of reach. In 2017, she moved to Cincinnati after negotiating a remote working arrangement with her employer.  

She then took a 2 month unpaid sabbatical to walk the Camino de Santiago (a 500 mile trek across northern Spain). She also bought a house, adopted a dog, and found herself a midwestern gentleman.  Diania founded EconoMe, a one day event at the University of Cincinnati on March 7th, 2020, to make the ideas that inspired her more accessible to others.
