Scarcity vs Abundance Mindset & FIRE with Diania Merriam | MHFI 199

Doug and Carl chat with Diania Merriam about big events in her life in 2024 (a wedding & the EconoMe conference), struggles with scarcity mindset/shifting to an abundance mindset, and how these mindsets have influenced her approach to wedding planning.  Along the way she discusses her transformative experience at the Hoffman Process retreat, especially as it relates to spending.  Diania also provides a preview of EconoMe, an overview of the conference goals, and highlights the importance of community on the path to financial independence.
