Hiya, I’m a German blogger, sharing the knowledge I gained on my path to FI(RE), and my thoughts on the good life – hence the subline in the blog’s name. I retired from the corporate world just before my 49th birthday to pursue ventures directed by my interests rather than the need to earn a high income. I’d love to inspire and motivate you along your own personal finance journey. See you on the blog!
Loui (writer on WW) is deeply inspired by the old book by Henry Thoreau, called “Walden”. Henry Thoreau went out to the woods, build a small house and lived there for two years. He then wrote “Walden” on how we all could benefit from living a more simple life. Wannabe Walden is a modern version on how we can implement this simple way of living and quitting the rat race. Loui would like to do the same as Thoreau, but on a boat instead. Follow his journey.

I’ve always been interested in money and the freedom that it can buy you – not to show off with flash and bling. Now with two kids, FIRE is a great option for a growing family and making those 14 years of saving and investing pay off. I blog on finances, family and the joys and frustrations of everyday life.

I’ve just started my road to FIRE, and I have 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 March 2019 my net worth is approx. $170,000, of which $155,000 is invested in index funds. This blog will hopefully motivate me to continue the hard work. 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. Do you want to escape the 9 – 5 too? There’s a ton of great content I’d love to share with you so that you can follow the same path!
