“I'm done, I'll quit my job and move to the forest”, that's exactly what Kalle Flodin did. After looking for a cabin to have as a summer home, Kalle fell in love with it, and his next step was to buy it without expecting that this place would become his home, where he lives now with his girlfriend and their puppy, leaving behind the days of cold and loneliness that he suffered at first.
In this conversation, Kalle and I talked a lot about his life in the woods, about how it's not just the typical wood's life, it's how Kalle adapted it to him with technology and also how he started to generate several incomes. You may ask: how does he live in the woods? Well, press play and find it out.
My name is Kalle and in the year 2018, I left my full-time job and apartment in Stockholm to live a simple and more meaningful life in the northern parts of Sweden. On Youtube, I share videos and tell stories about simple living, minimalism, personal development, and much more. My wish is to inspire others to also take a leap of faith and escape the rat race to pursue your dreams.
