Diania Merriam is the founder of The EconoMe Conference, an event centered around financial independence. Diania saves 60% of her income and is on track to be financially independent by the time she’s 40 years old. She’s passionate about personal finance and thrilled to be the new host of Optimal Finance Daily as of October 2020.

Diania has been quoted in publications like Business Insider and ABC 6 News.
Diania was motivated to start a conference after the pursuit of FIRE changed her life. She started EconoMe to make the ideas that inspired her more accessible to others.
The EconoMe Conference is a two-day event at the University of Cincinnati happening on November 13th & 14th 2021.
This event brings together mainstage speakers to discuss things like debt reduction, real estate investing, credit card hacking, side hustles, career development, and so much more.
