Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I wrote "How I Retired at 26!" because my personal discoveries brought me passion and power over my life that was to phenomenal to keep to myself. I simply wanted to share the information with someone else who may have been looking for the same kinds of freedom for their own life.

While accessing wealth does play a significant role in the reirement plan that I introduce here, it is not the only element of "retirement."

During my days of struggle, I wanted financial security, but I also desired to be fearless, balanced, have healthier relationships, and live at my spiritual, emotional, and physical best--the complete package of success. And in this book I share with you how I found it.

I am honored that you are choosing to allow me to help you realize your potential as so many others have. I am confident that if you follow along closely you will not be disappointed, and together we can look forward to your success. Now let's get busy once and for all. My friend, it is your turn!

Maximum Respect, Asha Tyson

About the Author

This new-comer is taking everyone by storm! Audiences and readers throughout the country describe her as "dynamic"--"compelling"--"spellbinding." When you need someone who interjects, honest state-of-the-art information and interactive humor all in an action-packed keynote speech, you need Asha Tyson! She leaves listeners and now readers anxious to apply her effective approaches to their own lives. Her powerful delivery and sensible teachings help educate people to new levels of achievement! Her own "rags to riches" experience will amaze and inspire you to live your dreams.

Born the only child to a single mother who was dying presented significant challenges. Asha eventually was left with no one. Having no place to go and no support system at the age of 17, Asha lived abandoned and forgotten -- homeless. As a child, her restless energy and failure of adults to recognize her phenomenal abilities resulted in her being labeled "a problem child.

Neither abuse or neglect derailed Asha from her dreams. With poor grades, no connections, no plan and no financial aid, Asha went to college and obtained both Bachelor's and Master's degrees in record time. Through persistence and determination, she later launched a professional career and served as a higher education executive. However, after feeling unfullfilled on that path, Asha rose to the challenge of discovering for herself the secrets for obtaining freedom and wealth. Her search would prove to be successful by affording her the luxury of retiring at the tender age of 26!

Now in her soon-to-be bestseller, "How I Retired at 26!," she shows you how to unveil and live your best life no matter what.


More About the Author

This newcomer is taking everyone by storm! Audiences throughout the country describe her as "dynamic" - "compelling" - "spellbinding". When you need someone who interjects solid techniques, state-of -the -art information and interactive humor all in an action-packed keynote address, you need Asha Tyson! She leaves listeners anxious to apply her effective approaches to their own lives. Her powerful delivery and sensible teachings help educate people to new levels of achievement!

Her own rise from homelessness to prominence deems her an expert on personal success. Born the only child to a single mother who was dying from Sickle Cell Anemia presented significant challenges. Although her mother had good intentions, her life deteriorated right before her young daughter's eyes leaving Asha with no one. Having no place to go and no support system, at the age of 17 Asha lived abandoned and forgotten -- homeless until she was able to secure shelter in the basement of a church. As a child, her restless energy and the failure of adults to recognize her phenomenal abilities resulted in her being labeled " a problem child".

Although others had given up on her, she didn't see failure as an option for her life. Having a "D" grade average in high school, being tortured by peers and even repeated beatings and sexual abuse could not steal her hopes and crush her spirit. With no connections, no mentors and only $80 dollars in her pocket, Asha went to college, financed her own education, and obtained both Bachelor and Master degrees in Political Science and Public Administration all in record time. Through persistence and determination, this first generation college graduate immediately launched a professional career as a higher education executive. After leaving the workforce, Asha owned and operated a thriving franchise then retired at the tender age of 26!

Now in her new book , "How I Retired at 26!", Tyson reveals the secrets of this proven success formula by offering you an easy-to-understand blueprint to creating your own life of freedom and wealth at any age no matter what!

Prepare to have your excuses for not being as successful as you want to be, totally taken away. In my opinion, this book is destined to become a classic! Asha Tyson did it. She went from a (to say the very least!) dysfunctional and often brutal upbringing, to homelessness, to enlightenment, to a life of joy . . . while still in her twenties!

This is not a "financial planning book" in the George Clason ("Richest Man In Babylon") sense of the word (although that is certainly very well worth reading as well, as the author mentions). Instead, it's more of a holistic, inside-out method of "curing" oneself first, and then allowing material wealth to manifest.

The recurring theme from the author is personal responsibility. She acknowledges that bad things do happen, others can cause you problems, and that life certainly is not fair (and she can personally attest to that), but she admonishes the reader not to let that stop them.

When the author speaks of "retirement" she's not necessarily talking about having to amass incredible sums of money, and she's definitely not talking about not working. She stresses the importance of having something to live and work for. She is simply talking about freedom; "freedom to design the lie you've always wanted as a gesture of gratitude for having a life at all." I love this quote on page 81: "I retired 'from' self-defeating thought forms that have long stopped working for many of us, and I retired 'to' the life of my dreams! . . . I retired by comprehensively pursuing happiness with my whole life . . . and it's just a bonus that it brings wealth."

I'm hesitant to offer specific pieces of advice from the author because, individually, you might be tempted to say, "Oh, I've heard that before.

If you are not moved by this book then you either have a heart of stone or you've given up on life completely. The story of how young Asha Tyson pulled herself up from a hellish childhood (every terrible thing that could happen to a little girl did happen to her)to a successful, joyful life is amazing. Asha, who knows about hard times discusses what I think is one of America's biggeset problems: the celebration of victimology. Instead of wasting her adult life going "poor me" Asha Tyson got up and gotgoing. Her book gently but firmly explains how its readers can do the same.

When I think of retiring, what comes to mind is having enough money to live on without working. This is not what Asha did. She just got tired of working at a job and quit--with no money. She lucked into motivational speaking and wrote one book (this one) that is full of the positive-thinking platitudes like all the rest. Sorry to be the boy who pointed out that the King is really naked.

This book should have been titled "How I Got My First Job At 26 And Then Started Planning For My Retirement" It's a book about how Asha Tyson expanded her awareness. It's full of inspirational zingers gleaned form other writers but she never get's to the 'how to'.

Here is her definition of retirement "Retirement is taking on the responsibility as a brilliant life form to make a contribution with your gifts." What???

She also says that anyone can do what she has done but then says,"By age nine, I was narrating plays and giving keynote addresses at banquet halls for award and appreciation ceremonies." Also, "...I'd always had charisma,drive, and stamina..." Sounds like a GIFTED person to me!

Hey folks, save your money, Think and Grow Rich is still a great read.

I was overweight my entire life and I hadn't done anything extraordinary with my years. While I didn't have a terrible image of myself I didn't know how to maximize my potential either. Stagnation was my life. When I saw this book I thought "Okay another self-help book." But I was wrong! This was anything but. "How I Retired at 26!" delivers! After reading it, I have found the confidence to, not only learn my dreams, but also to start living them. I have lost 50 pounds and I have started my own business which turned a profit within its first three months!!! I can say that I am truly happy with my life, and I have never been able to say that before.

I have never met Asha, but my pastor recommended the book to me. So off I went trying to find it..libraries, bookstores, online and finally I found it on ebay in the UK of ALL places. It arrived in the mail in a very small understated package. I looked at the cover, just glancing over the outside writing and finally I had the time to really dig into the text I finished it in less than 24 hours.

I think the most impressive thing about Asha is that she is so young with the mindset that she has. And its funny 200+ pages of text can change your total outlook on your own life and those around you. It can make you reevaluate what you already know and don't quite understand and just like a light switch everything just clicks. Asha's book brought up a lot of good points about our spiritual walk with the Father that I have been kind of putting in my subconscious...my life, my body, my spirit, my breath absolutely nothing that I have 'temporary posession' of is NEVER my own...and it is with that that we must go living each day of our life as though it were to expire. I do not want to disappoint my Father in the gracious opportunity he has given me to live life with the gifts that only I have been bestowed.

Thanks for bringing that back to my memory Asha!
