The Abundant Retirement Summit and Victory Lap Retirement

Depositphotos_71592703_s-2015As readers may know, Hub blogger Michael Drak and I have just finished co-authoring a book about life after Financial Independence. It’s titled Victory Lap Retirement, and describes a new post-corporate lifestyle that combines work and play, much like the illustration to the left.

The book has just gone through its second editing pass. Next we’ll be sending out pre-release PDFs to media and influencers, looking for testimonials: if you’re interested please let me know at or Michael at

The finished product should be in book stores and available online by mid-summer.

Half-hour interview will be at Abundant Retirement telesummit

kay-bannerWe have started with some pre-publicity in the United States (the book is written for both Americans and Canadians.) One is with The Abundant Retirement Summit, an online retirement planning telesummit that will run for ten days starting on February 15th.

It’s free to users and there will be two audio interviews each day between the Summit’s Kay Young (pictured above) and 20 retirement experts and authors. One of those interviews will be with myself and Michael: click here for details, and then on Kay’s one-minute video for an overview of the summit.

Generally, the themes are quite consistent with Victory Lap Retirement: as Kay explains, it’s about finding meaningful, flexible and portable work and pursuing one’s passions.

Other experts will be on hand to discuss:
·         How to manage your money, sharing keys to build, save & expand your assets
