Financial Independence can be lonely sometimes. But there is actually a huge community of others on this journey.

Being part of the FI community can make a major impact on your finances. Not only do FI friends help you stay motivated over the long term but they can also give you great financial advice. Or at least give you a different perspective on your situation. It can be great having someone who “gets it” to bounce ideas off of or nudge you when you’ve gone off track.

The hard part is getting out of your comfort zone (and off your phone) to meet them. But once you do, your life will never be the same.

So make 2019 the year you get out from behind the keyboard and meet some amazing FIRE community members IRL.

Here are some FI community events you’ll want to pencil in for the new year!

CampFI

Camp FI events are happening throughout the year in various locations around the country. Designed to help stoke the fires of the FI community with close-knit and intimately small events, attendees can spend some quality times with community members and learn from one another.

The Lola Retreat

The Lola Retreat is a financial weekend for women to feel empowered about their finances, and connect with other women for a unique experience that you can’t find elsewhere. With powerhouse speakers and an opportunity to mingle in smaller groups to spark connection and community, Lola is designed to help women build their tribe, skillsets, and confidence to live a financially sparked life.

Camp Mustache

Camp Mustache is a get together for fans fo Mr. Money Mustache. These non-profit events are set in a “natural setting that allows attendees to get into nature.” The sessions are broken down into two “tracks.” One track for the nuts and bolts of FI, such as the 4% rule and travel hacking. The other track is focused on the “FI Philosophy.”

Camp Mustache – May 24th, 2019
Seattle, WA
Cost – $425

FI Chautauqua

As it states on their site “Chautauqua is a week-long retreat with talks of Financial Independence, early retirement, and happiness.” Sounds awesome right? In 2019, there will be speakers such as JL Collins, Millennial Revolution,  Mr 1500, and Alan Donegan from PopUp Business School.

But here’s the real kicker about this event is that each week only 29 people can attend. The small group makes it great because you really get to know the other attendants and speakers. But that also means if you want to go you need to jump on it when the tickets go on sale.  You can get on the waiting list here.

FI Chautauqua – June 8-14, 2019
UK
Cost – TBD

FI Chautauqua – June 15-21, 2019

Fincon Expo 2019 – September 4-7 2019

ChooseFI Local

Each group offers different gatherings and calendars. Local groups are coordinating everything from book clubs to beer exchanges and chances are there’s one near you! If you don’t see one, or your local group hasn’t planned a happy hour, you might just be the person for the job to kick things off and be a community builder! Joining the ChooseFI Facebook Group is a great place to start.

Let us know what else should be on this list so we can make updates! Happy travels everyone!
