This web site experienced a flood of book orders today, including some from the United States. Turns out Peter Grandich of the Grandich Letter posed the question “When is Your Findependence Day?” on his blog. Here’s what he said about it.
Grandich is set to publish his own book shortly: Confessions of a Wall Street Whiz Kid. I contributed a testimonial, which notes his unusual journey from conquering Wall Street to his current focus on the spiritual life.
That’s where we’re all headed. I sometimes joke that my next book will be titled Sindependence Day [that is, seeking independence from Sin] but for now we still have a few more copies of Findependence Day to sell. To all who ordered, the book is already in the mail.
A note to any American readers: the book actually begins in Chicago and ends in New York City. The financial content is both American and Canadian, so we talk about both IRAs and RRSPs, Roth IRAs and Tax Free Savings Accounts.
In the end, the topic of achieving financial independence transcends borders.
