About

Welcome!

Welcome to www.planyourescape.ca! This is where I share my thoughts and ideas on escaping the "rat race" using a focus on simple living and financial health.

Who Am I?

My name is Peter Milner. I'm currently living in Ottawa, Canada. I'm married and we have three daughters. Over the past several years I have become passionate about simplifying my life and building a strong financial foundation that will provide for my family now and into the future.

What Can You Expect?

As I follow this personal and financial path, I'll regularly share my research and my observations here on this site. You'll hear my thoughts on simple living, frugality, investing, personal development and more. I try to keep things light and interesting, and I'll occasionally include some illustrations to help liven things up a bit.

What Do I Expect?

I really wish I knew what to expect! This is all a new experience for me and I'm learning something new at every turn. So I'm not expecting anything. I am hoping that by forcing myself to put my ideas in writing, I'll be able to communicate some of my experiences with you, the reader, so that you can learn from my adventures. At the same time, I hope that I will learn from my writing, because I've recently discovered that it is a lot more challenging to write about an idea than to just think about it. So, I hope that this will be a valuable exchange for both of us.
