Sherry Cooper: the new retirement
Maybe she'd be open to author Tim Ferriss's idea of a mini retirement. He proposes we "test" our utopian retirement, whether it be sailing around the world or lying on a beach sipping a Corona.
• Early 2008 saw the publication of Cooper's third book The New Retirement: How It Will Change Our Future.
• In this 2001 clip Cooper explains declining markets in a post-Sept. 11 world and the effect on Canadians.
• Tim Ferriss's book The 4-Hour Workweek is a New York Times bestseller. Ferriss was nominated by Fast Company magazine as one of its "Most Innovative Business People of 2007". According to his website, he is an "angel investor" (an individual, usually affluent, who provides capital for a business startup) and runs a multinational firm from wireless locations worldwide. He has been invited to speak at some of the world's most innovative organizations, including Microsoft, Google, MIT, PayPal and Princeton and Harvard universities.
