Jonathan and I spent last weekend at the Toronto Zoomer Show, which gave us the opportunity to talk to numerous people about our new book ‘Victory Lap Retirement.” As Ernie Zelinski my mentor likes to say “Books don’t sell themselves!”

Visitors at the show receive the latest trends, advice and information on positive aging from more than 250 exhibitors such as Health and Wellness, Financial Planning, Caregiving, Fitness, Technology, Employment, Education, Pets, Volunteerism, Faith, Safety and Travel.
