Author Biography

Who wants to escape the nine to five workplace and live life again? Of course, the answer is everyone. Yet, in the crowded work-life balance genre there too few books that give a practical formula for the everyday worker to achieve balance in his life. This is truly a pity because millions of workers would love to read about how they can live life more fully and to fulfill their dreams now, all without sacrificing what they currently have.

THE TIME TRADING GURU provides a blueprint to escape the workplace, take life breaks, and to get more out of life. The formula details how to master the levers of life’s principles of time, flexibility, and money, leverage the DREAM process to realize your dreams, and to trade one’s self to a more rewarding life; one full of experiences and relationships and no regrets.

Robert Renaud is a life enthusiast, pragmatic career man, and spirited dreamer, who has lived his dreams, from dancing with princess, living as a millionaire in Ecuador, to being a cartoonist. He's a dedicated family man who leverages time trading to live life to its fullest and becoming personally fulfilled in the process.

If you could enjoy your life based on your perception of time, value and money, would you? If you could quit your job, bid a fond farewell to your boss and travel the world while effortlessly generating multiple streams of income, would you start packing now? If you said yes, then you are ready to read “The Time Trading Guru” by Robert Renaud. If you are working 40 hours and slavishly waiting for retirement, Renaud says you have an old school mindset. For the last 20+ years, he has mastered the art of trading time or diversifying income to lessen the gravity of economic changes. Time trading helps you leverage life breaks and determine how you will spend your time whether it is for one day or 10 years. Luxury is defined by perception.

Renaud is an executive, creator of 'The Bureaucrats' comic strip, entrepreneur, world traveler and a father. I was swept away by his exotic travels. The conversations with Jack (a talented but misguided executive who was relying on his corporate job to provide for his financial future) helped convey his message. The chapter about money was so comprehensive and detailed that it compelled me to reconsider my notion of income. This book offers tips and eye-opening discoveries about the mundane things (emails and multitasking) that erode our time. “The Time Trading Guru” is for those fearless souls who want to live life on their own terms.
