About Fritz Gilbert
Fritz Gilbert is a writer focused on helping people achieve a great retirement. Following his 33-year career in Corporate America, he has dedicated his retirement to writing on the topic and has become one of the leading bloggers on the subject of retirement, with a focus on both the "harder" (financial) and "softer" (lifestyle) issues that are critical to success after crossing "The Starting Line".
His award-winning blog, The Retirement Manifesto, captures "the present before it becomes the past" as it chronicles his journey to and through retirement. His large following is primarily comprised of people approaching, or living in, retirement. His first book, Keys to a Successful Retirement, is a summary of the 24 keys he has identified and experienced in his own successful transition to retirement and is a "must-read" for anyone within five years of retirement.
Fritz and his wife, Jackie, reside in the mountains of Blue Ridge, Georgia with their four rescue dogs. They enjoy cross-country travel in their RV to visit their daughter and her family in the Pacific Northwest and are active in charitable work in their local community. When he's not writing, Fritz enjoys a focus on physical fitness and spends as much time as possible in the mountains surrounding their retirement cabin.
