Welcome to A Way to Less! We are a professional couple in our late 20’s / early 30’s. We live in northern England, UK. Having been avid readers of various other FIRE/travel related blogs we wanted to document our own journey. Reading other blogs has taught us a lot and we see this as our opportunity to give back to the community! We currently work full time as a Chartered Engineer and a music teacher. Our interests include travel, food, sport, music, education and of course personal finance! It is very important to us that these interests are pursued alongside saving for FIRE. They must not be sacrificed along the way! We have reasonably paid professional careers and realise that this puts us in a much better position than many in society. However, we want to show that FIRE is possible while on much more ‘typical’ wages. In fact, we believe that no matter what your financial position, changes can be made in order to improve your outlook for the better.

There has, in fact, been a welter of independent, peer-reviewed research dating back to the 1950s on how best to invest, and the findings are remarkably consistent. Yet although this evidence is widely known in academic circles, the investing public remains largely oblivious to it. Even investment professionals and industry commentators are either unaware of it or for their own reasons choose to ignore it. This blog is an attempt to redress the balance. My goal is to inform investors about what the evidence says; to explain why we don’t hear more about it; and to help like-minded financial advisers to communicate the benefits of an evidence-based approach. If you’re hoping to get rich quick, this isn’t the blog for you. I’m not an investment professional; I’m a journalist. The content on this site is for informational purposes only and should not be seen as advice. But if you’re looking for the truth about investing or, like me, you’d like to see this hugely important industry change for the better, then welcome aboard. Let’s enjoy the journey.

I’m a Norwegian guy in my early 30’s. My interests are photography, nice whisky, watches, technology, but perhaps more on that later, because my biggest interest is finance and growth of money. Inspired by the book "Think and Grow Rich", by Napoleon Hill, I wrote down a money target a few years ago. This target I was able to reach and I am now defining my new goal. My investments are about to hit 2 million kroner (≈ $230,000) distributed in stocks, mutual funds, saving accounts and a few other investments. My next goal is to reach 6,5 million kroner (≈ $745,000) within the next 10 years.
