All of these book deals have been initiated, negotiated, and finalized by Ernie without using the services of any North American literary agent although he does use agents in the Orient.

Twenty-five years ago Ernie Zelinski was fired from his engineering job for taking too much vacation time. He hasn't worked at a real job ever since. Now he works only three or four hours a day — sometimes five — and earns a better living than 90 percent of the corporate world.

Now, this is creativity and Real Career Success! And true freedom! As Ernie Zelinski says in his books, "you will have attained true freedom in this world when you can get up in the morning when you want get up; go to sleep when you want to go sleep; and in the interval, work and play at the things you want to work and play all at your own pace."

Retirement Book by Ernie ZelinskiErnie Zelinski 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 30 years old and close to financial bankruptcy (with a net worth of minus $30,000). Yet today Ernie is a prosperous writer, entrepreneur, and proponent of individual freedom 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.
