I was reading a book called "Victory lap Retirement". It is written y Mike Drak and Jonathan Chevreau. I have seen Mark from My Own Advisor was holding a give away of the above said book.
Then I saw Mr. Chevreau on CBC talking about the book.
In this book authors talks about what to do after gaining financial independence. They are saying putting a full stop on your career is not good for our health (which is actually wealth).
People are living longer than ever. We need to have a purpose and some meaningful thins to do even after retirement. That is why no one wants to have an idle life.
This book is for people who have attained the financial freedom. This is for people who didn't follow through their passion when they were young.
When you no longer need that work to cover the day to day expenses, work in fun, right?
When I read the blogs by Meanqueen, Crabapplelanding and Frugalqueen, I think they are all having the victory lap in their own way.
When I decide to retire, I am sure, I will not get a pension from my employer. So, it is all what I saved and invested. Since Canadians can get the CPP, I am sure I will get that.
It is victory lap or not, we need to have a reason to get up in the morning and enjoy the day.
By the way, if you are in Toronto, you don't have to buy the book. It is available in the Toronto Public Library.
Till next time,
