Route2FI

I’ve just started my road to FIRE, and I got some years left before leaving the corporate world. Reading all those other FIRE-blogs made me want to make a blog for my own journey. As of january 2019 my net worth is currently aprox. 150.000 $, which 130.000 of these $ are invested in index funds. On this blog I will write about my path to financial independence (FI). Therefore I will cover themes within personal economy, personal growth, life philosophy and other topics related to FI.
