About the Book
Written for Canadians by Canadian author Russell Roy, with the motivation to help every Canadian get ahead and build wealth. This easy to read book will help anyone wanting to understand personal finances by taking the worry and complexities out of it.
Author Russell Roy says “So many Canadians live paycheque to paycheque while working and then depend solely on CPP and OAS to fund their retirement. It is my goal to share the things I have learned so every Canadian can live and retire more comfortably regardless of their income level. Financial wealth is not everything, but ultimately it provides you with more freedom and more opportunities.”
Russell retired at the age of 48 and has written two financial books titled Financial Freedom for Every Canadian, and, Retire Younger Canada. He spends his retirement educating family and friends on wealth building, travelling the world and sharing his knowledge with Canadians.
I spent 25 years working as a professional engineer. Over that time, my wife and I saved and invested our money until we amassed enough wealth to become financially independent in our 40s. There is no magic to how we gained financial independence at a young age. We did it by working damn hard and saving wisely. Hindsight being 20/20, we would have attained our financial independence sooner had we invested more wisely at a younger age. The financial advisor community completely ignores a whole suite of good advice that can make a big difference in many people’s lives. Tired of hearing me complain about the poor advice given by others, my wife encouraged me to write a book, so I did. My book is not extremely technical nor a financial textbook by any stretch. It is more about advice, perspective and how to structure your investments so that you may be inspired to declare yourself financially independent sooner than you may have thought possible. Early retirement is possible!
