 Retirees & Captivating Characters

 E-Book Store

I am sending a quick note to let you know how much I enjoy reading your books and your newsletters. I find them to be both inspiring and informative. What more can one ask for? While my dream retirement is different than yours in some respects (e.g., requires more money), it is similar enough that I can benefit from your experiences and advice. Besides, you have expanded my horizons to the point where I now feel I have to add Mexico, Central & South America, Thailand and Vietnam into the mix. I do blame you for complicating my planning process but what the heck, planning is half the fun so all is forgiven.

Thanks and keep up the good work!
