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, where, besides hanging around his favorite coffee shops with his laptop, he enjoys running, cycling, tennis, reading, and traveling.

Excerpts from Various Books by Ernie Zelinski
Everything in life has a price attached to it. There is a price for not working hard enough; and there can be an even larger price for working too hard.
- from The Lazy Person's Guide to Success
- from Career Success Without a Real Job by Ernie Zelinski
It's a lot easier to avoid trouble than to get out of trouble. Yet, most of us go to great extremes to invite trouble into our lives. Mishandling money is one of our favorite ways to get ourselves into difficulty. We seem easily to forget that each spending choice we make determines how much money we need in our lives, and how much we have to work for it.
