Ernie's core message - that ordinary people can attain out-of-the-ordinary results and make a difference in this world - is at the heart of his work. Ernie deeply believes in the powers of creativity and well-intentioned action as the most important elements for how ordinary individuals can attain personal prosperity and financial freedom.

Thousands of individuals have contacted Ernie by phone, e-mail, and regular mail to let him know how they have experienced inner renewal and personal growth as a result of reading one or more of his blockbuster books.
Ernie has negotiated 111 book deals with publishers in 29 countries for his various creative works - which have now sold over 850,000 copies worldwide.
Ernie is uniquely qualified to write books such as "How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free", given that he opted for semi-retirement when he was only thirty years old and close to financial bankruptcy (with a net worth of minus $30,000).
Yet today Ernie is an international best-selling writer, entrepreneur, and prosperity life coach who maintains a three- to four-hour workday and doesn't like to work at all in any month that doesn't have an "r" in its name.
Ernie lives in Edmonton, where, besides hanging around his favorite coffee shops with his laptop, he enjoys running, cycling, reading, and traveling. Ernie's second home is Vancouver, B.C., which he visits five or six times a year.
Ernie speaks on the topics of early retirement, entrepreneurship, and creativity. The Turkish Society for Quality recently spent over $20,000 to have Ernie speak about "The Joy of Not Working" to 2,000 executives and scholars attending its 17th annual convention in Istanbul.
