Question: Who is the intended audience?
Answer: Retired at 27 is ideal for anyone who has ever thought them may like to start up their own business (or anyone wanting to improve their current one!) Also, managers and people who supervise staff will directly benefit from the techniques in the book. If, like Kirsty, you want to retire young – grab a copy!

Q: What is the book about?
A: Retired at 27: If I Can Do It Anyone Can is a true story outlining the business mistakes, successes and lessons that took Kirsty from absolutely nothing to retired and financially free at age 27. Kirsty’s story showcases the fact that success is achievable and available to everyone regardless of their current circumstances. Kirsty reveals that being young, female and broke were no barriers because she had the right attitude, determination and integrity.

Q: Why are you the best person to write this book?
A: I started my first two businesses at 15, and wanted to “rule the world” from a young age. Only at 19 I was broke, both my parents had gone bankrupt from their businesses and I had no idea what I wanted to do with myself! Enter a sales career in real estate, and finally – direction! From there I took it and ran.

Q: How is this book different from other books on this topic?
A: The topic is my story – so it’s very unique (I think!). Please don’t think it’s a get rich quick book! It covers the journey that took me from being broke at 19, a self made millionaire at 23, self made multi-millionaire at 25, retired at 27. (I’m 28 years old now). It’s simple advice in an easy to read format. I’d love to have a conversation with every person interested in my story – but I can’t – so I wrote this book and it’s written like a casual conversation with me.

Q: Is there anything else we should know about this book?
A: We’ve just sold out our first print run of 3,000 so we’re now in our second edition (book was released in October, 2007). At this stage, the bulk of our readers are in my homeland – Australia. Also, there’s added bonuses available to readers including ebooks, mp3s and more from fellow authors, speakers and trainers. And here’s what some people are saying about the book:
