"I worked hard and planned well and now we are enjoying the fruits of our labour. I spent all my working life managing people, now all we have to do is to manage our diary".
Ken always had a plan to retire when he reached 55. But after rising through the ranks from the mail-room to the executive level of a top 40 corporation and achieving all his career goals, his mind turned to an early retirement. With a strong financial position and a desire to move to a simpler lifestyle, Ken and his wife Jan, made the decision to retire at 52 years of age. They left Melbourne and headed north with a goal to find a gorgeous little Queenslander home they could call their own. After a three month adventure on the road they discovered a place in the Sunshine Coast hinterland that fitted the bill perfectly.
Ken’s friends often say how lucky he and Jan are to live the life they lead. But Ken says to them "luck has nothing to do with it".
