The Power of Community | Amy, Diania, and Stephen | Ep 467

In this episode: community, structuring FI events, unstructured time, the energy in the room, and vulnerability.

We all know that the online FI community can help you along the journey in various ways, but the abundance and ease of access to that community can lead to us forgetting the impact live FI events can have on your life. Our guests Stephen, Amy, and Diania from CampFI, FI Freedom Retreats, and The EconoMe Conference can attest to the power of in-person communities as they are the ones who work so hard to put them together! Together with Brad, the foursome talks about the benefits of joining these conferences and how “the energy in the room” can help you find value and take in information in ways you never thought possible!
