A Tale of Two Couples…

On an early autumn day, just over a year ago, two couples moved to The Villages.

They were very much alike, these two couples. Both had completed successful careers, raised their families, saved and planned for the future, and both – as most in their shoes are – were filled with excitement about this next chapter in their lives.

One year later we find these two similar couples in very different situations…

One couple is planning a night out with new friends and neighbors to celebrate the One Year anniversary of their move to The Villages.

The other couple is wrapping up a long day of loading their moving truck. They were caught off guard by a few surprises they only discovered after moving to The Villages, and never really got the feeling they fit in.

What Made The Difference

Have you ever wondered, as I have, why some people just seem to make the transition to a new place while others don’t?

The difference usually lies in what each person knows going in to the move, and how they make use of that knowledge.

And that is why I am writing to you and to people like you about Complete Guide to The Villages. My sole purpose for writing Complete Guide to The Villages was to help you separate the fact from fiction about America’s most popular retirement community, and begin your new life in The Villages with confidence.

Since 2007, nearly 10,000 readers have discovered my book to be a wise investment in planning their future.

An Investment In Your Future

About those two couples I mention at the beginning of this letter: They both led similar lives and took nearly identical paths to The Villages. So what made their lives in The Villages so different?

Knowledge. Useful knowledge. And its application.

I cannot guarantee that The Villages is the right place for you. But I can promise that you’ll find the information you need to make that decision for yourself in my materials.
