American culture has engrained in us the lifetime 40-40 plan – working 40 hours a week for 40 years. On paper, the formula appears sound: save a portion of our income, invest it for retirement, then go enjoy it. Only that traditional plan often doesn’t work anymore. Many people today aren’t enjoying a financially secure retirement. Further, as studies show, many never enjoyed their job in the first place or felt they ever had job security. In 5 Day Weekend: Freedom to Make Your Life and Work Rich with Purpose, authors Nik Halik and Garrett B. Gunderson lay out a manifesto that can liberate the typical worker. They provide the tools to literally live a life full of 5 day weekends, connecting true financial independence with a commitment to personal freedom.
Garrett B. Gunderson is the author of the New York Times bestseller Killing Sacred Cows: Overcoming the Financial Myths That Are Destroying Your Prosperity. He’s the founder of an Inc. 500 financial firm and a Forbes contributor. Nik Halik is a entrepreneur, adventurer, investor and speaker. He has dived to the wreck of the Titanic, climbed some of the world’s highest peaks and is a certified Russian cosmonaut.
