Playing with FIRE Documentary Heats Up FinCon

The FI/RE movement is spreading. Not only is the online money community growing, but mainstream media is starting to cover the concepts of both financial independence and early retirement more frequently. Another big first in the FI/RE movement is Playing with FIRE, the first feature-length documentary of its kind.

Whether you are just starting to try on the label of money nerd or you’re well on your way toward FI/RE yourself, both Playing with FIRE and the upcoming Financial Freedom Summit in May, 2020, pack plenty of inspiration.
Here’s a peek of the documentary trailer:

Watch the Trailer for Playing with FIRE

The trailer for Playing with FIRE doesn’t mince words. In fact, it comes right out and shares the jarring truth about Americans and our finances. Most of us have less than $1,000 in savings, while some of us having nothing.

How did we get here and how do we change that? The trailer promises to chronicle the journey of Scott and Taylor Rieckens, who are determined to chart an alternate course. Inspired by the FI/RE movement and thought leaders like Mr. Money Mustache, the Rieckens set out on a year long journey to see just what FI/RE is all about.

The star-studded trailer pulls wisdom from Mr. Money Mustache, The Minimalists, Vicki Robin, and many others, who hint at the broader message behind the documentary: this isn’t just a math problem. It’s looking at the psychology behind the numbers of early retirement and exploring the consumerism of our society and the spending that goes along with it.

Financial Freedom Summit and Playing with FIRE

FI/RE is catching–there’s no doubt about that. And the Financial Freedom Summit is playing a part in helping like-minded individuals come together to share their visions and their progress in their pursuit of financial freedom and independence. Grant Sabatier and Cody Berman, together with FinCon founder Philip “PT” Taylor, created the Financial Freedom Summit in response to something they weren’t seeing take place in the consumer event space–a conversation about money that isn’t doom and gloom but one that is filled with hope and centered around creating lives people love. They believe that open conversations about money are more helpful and want to remove the stigma of talking about money in more than hushed tones.

If you are someone who is interested in finding support and accountability as you are on your money journey, the Financial Freedom Summit is absolutely for you. It isn’t an exclusive event for content creators. It’s a broader table that welcomes anyone and everyone who is enthusiastic about the idea of bettering their finances. After all, a money nerd is a money nerd.

Check out the at-a-glance schedule to see all the incredible things planned for the Financial Freedom Summit.
