Hello there! This is interview number 4 of the guest post/interview series by people who are well on their way to financial independence (FI) or have reached it already. I am so excited to welcome Annie and André on the pages of my blog! What I really love about them is their shared creative and entrepreneurial spirit....
The post Interview with Annie and André appeared first on Eyes on the Goal.
A few weeks back I attended an event organized by the BERlean IN circle in Berlin around the topic of salary negotiation.
From salary negotiation and payrises to dealing with and overcoming pay gaps – money plays a big (and sometimes difficult) role in our work life. How open should we be about our salaries?
This sounded intriguing. On top of that, the guest speaker for the evening is was Noor van Boven, ...
Hello there! This is the third interview of the guest post/interview series by people who are well on their way to financial independence (FI) or have reached it already.
I met Mel and Sam in early 2012 in Berlin. Our paths split into different countries and jobs but we still have the goal of FI and a taste for adventures in common. I hope you enjoy the interview as much as ...
The world is vast, limitless and abundant. It is, it really is. But we see only what’s around us, our little social bubble. For some of us, it’s bigger, for some – it stays forever a little, cozy bubble. Unexpected events often throw us out of our comfort zone. Isn’t going out of your mother’s womb the first kick life gives you?
Look back for a moment
Looking back from where I started ...

Confessions of a Minimalist
Somewhere in-between the 100 Things challenge and decluttering my garderobe I became the opposite of a shopaholic. I get way more pleasure from freeing myself of stuff than shopping. Malls became too overwhelming and I am rarely tempted to make purchases.
Online shopping, on the contrary, is still something that I can hardly resist. It’s pure magic – the product materializes in front of my eyes. I can scan all the ...
Today it’s the last day of my sabbatical! I can’t believe it’s been six months since I left the office on a chilly Friday evening in January 2017. A retrospective is due.
Where did all this time go?!
Our perception of time is a strange thing. Back then, the upcoming half a year felt like a foggy chunk of time with a very abstract end, the 1st of August, 2017. Now, looking back, ...
Words don’t suffice to describe what one experiences walking the thousand-year-old pilgrimage route across Spain. The Camino de Santiago is different for everyone and still the same. These are some glimpses of my time on the way.
– ¡Hola, buenos días!
– ¡Buen camino!
There’s hardly anyone awake in this sleepy Spanish village except for an old man peeking out the front door of a stone house. It’s shortly after 6 am. The sun is rising. ...
The following Camino de Santiago packing list has been tried and tested by myself walking 220km of the Camino de Santiago in Spain for a total of 10 days.
Ladies and gentlemen, lo and behold!
I just reached a new level of my minimalist game! I walked 220km for a total of 10 days only with cabin luggage. The total weight of my backpack together with water was 8kg (17,6lb)!

Can you introduce yourself?
