Life at the Lakes
Stories to Improve Financial Wellness
by Rod Rieu

After two divorces (and the financial ramifications they entail) Calvin Bennett just wants to be free. As a wealth management executive, he is well equipped to steer himself back to financial stability but quickly comes to realize that he is not the only one struggling. Many of the people in the Lakes, his townhouse complex, are in similar situations. As Calvin helps his neighbours, he learns more about what financial freedom actually means and comes to see what is truly important. Calvin has advice for everyone, from young adults to retirees. Together, they plan for retirement, learn how to invest safely, stay out of debt, and even save for a house. Join Calvin and the other Lakes residents over drinks and barbeques to navigate a myriad of financial problems and learn what financial freedom means to them (and to you)!
