Welcome! Do you want to escape the 9 – 5 too?

Hi there, I’m Route 2 FI. I’m a Norwegian investor, writer, reader and philomath.

This website is the home of my life’s most important work. If gaining financial independence with a focus on life purpose is your intent, you’ve come to the right place.

I only have 5 years left in the corporate world. My plan is to leave my job in march 2024 with a net worth of 600.000 $.

As of may 2019 my net worth is currently aprox. 188.000 $ which 170.000 of these $ are invested in index funds .

About Me 

I’m an introvert working as a project manager. My job is slightly good, it’s just the routines that’s killing me. If I could do the same work from home, or choose which projects to work with, I would probably do it for a less salary. I think that I would love any job that wouldn’t feel like work.

This would be some kind of work that I choose fo myself, and that I am totally passionate about. In order to do that (seeking that freedom), I’ll save as much money as I can, so I’ll feel secure enough to step out of the corporate world.

What You Will Find On This Site

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.

In this blog many of the posts will be about money. But why money? Is it because I’m a selfish guy with an excessive capitalistic view of life?

No, it’s because money is the only asset that will buy you freedom!

The sweet escape

My main goal in life is to escape the corporate world, and in order to do that I need enough money.

You may wonder what I will do with all the time when I don’t work anymore? Well, I think this blog will cover that topic into the smallest detail.

My path to FI is several years away, and this blog will hopefully motivate me to continue the hard work (read my goals for 2019 here).

To my advantage I already have all the things I want in life, except for time. I’ve got a lot of hobbies that I would like to spend more time on as soon as I reach FI.

I love spending time with my fiancee, friends/family, playing tennis/squash, ride my road bike, bodyweight excersises, read books, write, help others, think and contemplate about life and to some extent; travel.

As you can see, I already got everything I want in life in order to be happy. And because of that I’m really grateful.

The only asset I would like more of is time, and that’s the reason I want FI.
