"Ernie Zelinski helps others find the time to live."
About the Author
Ernie Zelinski is an author, innovator, professional speaker, and unconventional career expert with more than 25 years of experience in solo-entrepreneurshp, semi-retirement, and making a great living without a real job.
Ernie is best known as the author of the international bestseller The Joy of Not Working: A Book for the Retired, Unemployed, and Overworked (over 225,000 copies sold). His latest works include the unconventional Career Success Without a Real Job: The Career Book for People Too Smart to Work in Corporations and 101 Really Important Things You Already Know,But Keep Forgetting.
Ernie is uniquely qualified to write books such as How to Retire Happy, Wild, and Free, given that he opted for semi-retirement when he was only thirty years old and close to financial bankruptcy (with a net worth of minus $30,000).
Yet today Ernie is a prosperous writer, entrepreneur, and connoisseur of leisure who maintains a three- to four-hour workday and doesn't like to work at all in any month that doesn't have an "r" in its name.
Ernie lives in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, where, besides hanging around his favorite coffee shops with his laptop, he enjoys running, cycling, reading, and traveling.

You may have guessed that I've not yet decided whether to stay or go, but it has opened my mind to partial retirement.
Plenty of tips from the American author, so here's one from me, if you need to fill your time volunteering, what's the difference with working?
Start planning it 5 years before you go.
Anyone seen a UK version, I've another 3 years to hang around?
He seems to have a low regard for the original job, but paradoxically offers ideas of replacing it with many full or part time substitutes, presumably on the basis that the alternative is your own choice. There are sections on becoming an artist or an author, which may or may not suit the individual, but it's less forthcoming on how best to share retirement with a partner, perhaps with a solo perspective. Nevertheless, the common sense thoughts are often useful to those who haven't thought in depth about how they'd like to spend their time, who I suspect are most likely to complain about the deal!
