It is difficult to describe a Chautauqua concisely and saying that it is a week of FIRE talks, 1-2-1s with the bloggers/podcasters and meeting your tribe doesn't really do it justice. There has been a huge amount written about Chautauqua over the last few years so check out the testimonial page for blogs written about the event and more.
You arrive at an incredible location, you meet an incredibly diverse group of people all with similar values and beliefs, you meet JL Collins who wrote the stock series and Millennial Revolution and some of the other most famous people in the FIRE world and you get to connect and chat deeply over the course of an entire week. Yes we will talk about finance, investment and more but the heart of Chautauqua is about connecting with like minded people and being inspired to create your life how you want to live it.
One of the biggest thing people say that they get out of this event is "I've met my tribe!"
JL Collins built this event so he could have "cool conversations, with cool people in cool locations" and that is what Chautauqua is all about
