Ready to pursue the rest of your life?
Professionally, you're experiencing the success that years of hard work brings but the long hours are taking their toll and you're burning out fast. You see it in your health and even in your family life. Your ambitions no longer include the rat race. You're thinking that retirement can't come soon enough.
Fortunately, theres an alternative to the grind: Early semi-retirement. Work fewer hours, realize your goals and dreams, spend time with your loved ones and do it all years, even decades, before the "normal" retirement age of 65.
With Work Less, Live More and a little planning, you can do it.
After several years as a corporate overachiever, Bob Clyatt realized there was more to life than "just this." Using the techniques in this book, Clyatt entered early semi-retirement at 42 and has never looked back.
Work Less, Live More provides a rational investment system based on Nobel Prize-winning research, a safe lifelong withdrawal plan and sensible spending guidelines. More importantly, the book provides inspiring stories and insights of many successful early semi-retirees, walking proof that meaningful work rather than full-time work is both fulfilling and rewarding.
