WHAT OTHER AUTHORS ARE SAYING ABOUT
“MISSION: RESCUE YOUR RETIREMENT”
This book is a must read for anyone contemplating a move overseas or planning to retire to a foreign country—like Ecuador. Edd and Cynthia spare no details regarding their desperate search out of their economic “tsunami,” but turned things around by thinking outside of the box. Their hilarious adventures of selling their belongings and moving south of the border will have you laughing one minute and crying the next. This is a fast read, but packed full of useful information for those thinking of doing the same.
~ Connie Pombo, author of Living and Retiring in Cuenca and contributing author to over 50 Chicken Soup books.
If you have ever wondered what in the world possessed someone to leave their home country and relocate to a foreign land, you will love this quick, breezy read from Edd and Cynthia Staton. Chronicling the first part of their life-changing journey, you'll giggle and shake your head when you read about how they rescued their retirement. I can't wait to read the next installment. ~ Lynne Klippel, best-selling author of Overcomes, Inc.
Whether you're just now looking at retirement options, a wannabe expat, or already living abroad, you owe it to yourself to read this book. Beneath the often-jocular surface of Edd and Cynthia’s writing, you'll find a wealth of information on how to salvage your dreams in a world that has become increasingly hostile for all but the wealthiest. The moral of their story is simply to follow your dreams. The road will be smooth at times and bumpy at others. There will be both laughter and tears. But reaching your destination will make it all worthwhile. ~ J. Michael Herron, author of six books including his latest, Healing Haley.
I just finished reading “Leap of Faith” and laughed so hard I had to stop and take a break! The book is filled with funny anecdotes plus excellent advice on how to prepare for the adventure of a lifetime. Edd and Cynthia have scored a bull’s-eye with their uplifting and enjoyable tales. A very important read for those considering a move abroad.
Be sure to take advantage of their three free stories. They’re hilarious!

A Hard Day’s Night
Self-help gurus often recommend stepping “outside the box” as a way to learn more about yourself.
