10 Random Facts About Me


To kick of the re-launch of this blog, here are some random facts about me and my life:

  1. My first trip abroad was to Sweden. It was just a few hours drive, and quite similar to Norway where I grew up, but I still loved it.
  2. My first trip abroad alone was to England when I was about 12 years old. I went to a tennis camp and had one of the best summers ever.
  3. In 1992 I served in the Norwegian army and it was wet, cold and dark most of the time. That created a desire to go to University in place that was warm and nice. And the following year I on a plane to Hawaii where I got a degree in business (yes, really)
  4. My wife is from Brazil and hates cold weather. She must love me a lot since we are currently living in Norway
  5. My son’s name is Leonel Alexander Da Silva Fernandes Vatne. Try filling that out in the small landing cards they give you on the plane.
  6. I once had a business partnership with the legendary soccer player Pele. I wish I could say it was a successful one – it wasn’t – but I would probably do it again if I got the chance.
  7. In 2010 I met a guy online who showed me how he was able to travel the world and make money at the same time. I thought it sounded to good to be true, but flew 10 hours to see him anyway. That changed my life.
  8. Ever since I was quit young people have wanted to me to speak and present and told me I am great at it, but I still get nervous every time. It doesn’t really matter if it’s 4 people or 4000 people in the audience.
  9. My resting heart-rate is about 40 beats per minute.
  10. I love being a dad more than anything in the world.
