The rules of retirement have changed and there's more at risk than ever. People are living longer and have to finance as many years in retirement as they had in their entire working career. So what will thirty or forty years, or more, in retirement look like for you? The old idea of full-stop retirement—going from 100 per cent work mode to 100 per cent leisure mode—is now neither sustainable nor desirable. Besides, many studies have shown that those who stay engaged, challenged, and stimulated stay healthier and live longer.

The key is to work because you want to and not because you have to. Victory Lap Retirement shows you how to create the post-employment lifestyle that's right for you—a unique blend of work and play that allows you to live life to the fullest, on your terms, while you are young enough to enjoy it.

"This book truly resonated with me. I personally experienced 'Sudden Retirement Syndrome' until I created my own Victory Lap. The advice for achieving financial independence—Findependence—is rock solid and essential to healthy, happy, later-life security. This is a must-read for people of any age planning their life cycles."&8212Dr. Sherry Cooper, Chief Economist, Dominion Lending Centres; Former Executive Vice-President and chief Economist, BMO Financial Group

"I've long believed that the idea of retiring at sixty-five is as outdated as the horse and buggy. You could live another thirty years or more. What are you going to do with that time? This book can help you find the answers.—Gordon Pape, Bestselling Author and Publisher of The Internet Wealthy Building and The Income Investor

"Jon and Mike reframe the idea of retirement as a smart twist on an age-old dilemma. The science of well-being later in life tells us we need to have a purpose—why not make a few bucks while you're at it? This book will open your mind to what your Victory Lap might be if the thought of doing nothing at some point is foreign to you."—Larry Berman Host of BNN's Berman Call, and Chief Investment Officer, ETF Capital Management

"I've always believed once you have your financial house in order it would free you up to do the things you love to do and would live your life more meaning and balance. Imaging the luxury of working because you want to, not because you have to. No one wants life to become a series of takeaways. Stay in the game. Enjoy and thrive during your 'Victory Lap.'—Patricia Lovett-Reid Chief Financial Commentator, CTV News

"Chevreau and Drak's primer on how to transition to retirement by outlining how to work while you play is full of helpful tips on how to align habits with long-term goals. You'll be richer for reading it."—Julie Cazzin, Senior Editor, MoneySense
