Financial Independence is the new Retirement.

Join our community of people taking control of our futures by making great financial and lifestyle decisions.

The first emphasis we have is to make the decision to change, then make changes, and then keep making changes. We cannot wish and hope our way to independence. In fact the biggest financial shock to many is that upon reaching 65, retirement isn’t even a remote option!

Making a commitment to our independence is key but we also help define what retirement and financial independence is all about. Many wealthy people never stop working, and most poor people never stop working. The difference is choice — the poor have to work while the independents choose their work, and their play.

Once you choose to define your goals, you then select the strategies that will work for you, regarding debt, income, investments, insurance, businesses and social outcomes. By joining us you will learn from other people’s successes and failures, and you’ll engage with others who decided to explore independence.

You will enjoy our resources including
  • a blog
  • educational courses 
  • podcast 
  • video interviews 
  • webinars
  • recommended books and videos, and 
  • a financial independence wiki. 
As our community grows, we will make sure to acknowledge strategies used around the world, not just North America. 

I am the 60 year old founder with a broad background in education, training, financial services, and organizational development. Places I’ve worked include Microsoft, Boeing, T-Mobile, 4 college/universities, and various startups and small businesses. Currently I work for a financial organization called Whitehaven.ca, headquartered in Montreal. I work in person with clients in British Columbia and Alberta, but am now going online to make Retirement Heroes out of everyone who’s willing to make a commitment to themselves, and to learn from others in community.

We are certainly part of the F.I.R.E movement (Financial Independence, Retire Early), which was popularized 30 years ago by the book “Your Money or Your Life” by Vicky Robins and Joe Dominguez. The underlying principles are the same today,
  • eliminate debt, 
  • create passive income, 
  • make helpful lifestyle choices, and
  • always measure progress.
But the tactics and strategies are ever changing. As an example, 30 years ago we didn’t have 
  • AirBnB 
  • Uber and Lyft 
  • eBay 
  • Amazon 
  • Etsy and Shopify 
  • Facebook and LinkedIn 
  • PayPal and Square
  • Instagram, Pinterest and Tumblr 
  • Webinars or 
  • Bitcoin and crypto currencies. 
New financial instruments have emerged including
  • ETFs
  • index funds 
  • reverse mortgages 
  • exempt market funds 
  • crowdfunding
  • ICO’s and 
  • tradebots (Artificial Intelligence Automated Trading). 
This community is committed to common sense financial principles, while acknowledging that the world has changed, and that if we truly seek indendence, we need to make wise choices based on today’s realities.

I have a team of professionals behind me to make sure that we are bringing you realistic strategies based on common sense principles. You will choose what’s best for your situation: retire in 5 years — or 10, 15 or 20. You choose the pace that best fits you and your family.

Please consider joining us as a Retirement Hero, knowing that your (optional) financial support actually creates the resources that are truly life-changing for millions.

Are you ready to be a Hero? Join us today!

The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them ignorant. 

  — Maximilien Robespierre


Yes, you now have the privilege of telling people that you are a member of the Illuminati, the ”enlightened ones”.  We appreciate you making it possible to illuminate this path to freedom.


As your reward, we will have a Monthly Conference Call, giving you further bragging rights...(“I just came back from a very enlightening meeting with the Illuminati...)


Everyone would love to be financially free — but for so many, it’s just not possible on their own. Your support paves the way for the websites, hosting, programming, and podcasts. While we appreciate your ongoing support, you can leave anytime if your financial situation changes. We understand that better than anyone lol!

Bringing the Vision to a Million of Families!


When you join at this level, this expands our video offerings, including the travel expenses that might be needed for certain interviews, and some equipment to have the highest quality presentations. The goal here is to inspire people to acknowledge the need for change and the courage to commit to actions that lead to financial independence.


When you watch the movies, the Executive Producers are the ones who invest money and offer advice and connections to make things happen. I hope to count on you for advice and suggestions as we grow the community. At this level we will have a Monthly Conference Call where I will share behind-the-scenes activities and challenges that will benefit from your input.


We are looking forward to interview the famous and unknown — seeking sources of inspiration to help people commit and stay encouraged to reach their goals. Here’s me with Margaret Trudeau — I’m sure you know others with inspiring stories. Her book latest book is The Time of Your Life: Choosing a Vibrant, Joyful Future. (https://www.amazon.com/Time-Your-Life-Choosing-Vibrant/dp/1443431842) She is on my list to interview and I’m sure you will have other great ideas. Your financial support is helpful, but your advice will be invaluable.

Credentialed Professionals and Trusted Advisors 


At this level you will be encouraged to contribute via articles, interviews, quotations and will be recognized in the community for your contributions. Your website and LinkedIn pages will be posted where possible. If you have a book for sale, live links will be added to your sales page.


We will have a Monthly Conference Call just for professionals (either currently or formerly licensed). This call reviews market and strategic trends and helps set the agenda for future content.


NB: Not everyone can be accepted as a contributor. Some products and services might conflict with our principles, so we will have to be selective. Examples of exclusions would be  stock trading letters with the greatest secret on earth, binary options, gifting clubs, derivatives and other highly speculative products or services. 


We will also balance out the services offered so that we don’t end up with 25 insurance advisors but no tax acountants.

PODCAST & INTERVIEWS

The blog and community discussions start right away, but the podcast interviews require some equipment and expenses to go after some of the people we want to interview. We will be going out through various podcast channels including Apple, Spotify and Stitcher, among others.
