Are you winning the game of life? What does prosperity mean to you? The book Lifeonaire by Steve Cook and Shaun McCloskey will challenge you to answer these questions and more. The narrative follows a successful business owner, Alex, and his family as they transition from chasing the world’s definition of success to their own vision of prosperity. They were working hard on the path to become millionaires but what they really desired was to be Lifeonaires!

Living Life Abundantly

In Lifeonaire, Steve Cook and Shaun McCloskey show how many people pursue success and wealth when what they really want is life experiences. They challenge society’s accepted definitions of a successful life and challenge the reader to define their own meaning of prosperity. In the book, you’ll read about Alex. Alex appears to be a successful businessman who has everything that society regards as success. The reality for Alex is that, although he has done well in business, the things that matter most to him are suffering. He had created a business to provide for his family and give himself the freedom to do the things he wants in life but ultimately that business is the very thing keeping him from living an abundant life.

Everything changes for Alex and his family after a chance encounter with Scott. Scott lives a truly prosperous life by his own rules. Alex could see that there was something to learn from Scott but he just couldn’t figure it out. Curiosity finally got the best of him and through regular chats with Scott, Alex and his family were finally on their way to living abundant lives.

Redefining Prosperity

Lifeonaire hits hard with questions that challenge the world’s definitions of prosperity. My favorite part about this book is that it encourages you to find your own success. An abundant life for one person may not be a life someone else wants at all. Society typically tells you that you need more money, a bigger house, more stuff to put in that house, and an expensive car to park in your garage. All of those things are great, but do they truly make you happy? One of the great things about Lifeonaire is that can be what you want. You could also choose to live frugally while being extremely generous to others. It’s about finding your vision for your own life and taking steps to live that life today. Many people, including Alex, work hard accumulating wealth so that someday they will have the freedom to enjoy life experiences. Lifeonaire acknowledges that someday may never come and suggests that you could begin living a truly prosperous life right now.


This is an amazing book! It is very easy to read cover to cover as you take the journey with Alex and his family. Many people from all walks of life can relate to the characters in this book. The questions presented will inspire deep thoughts about what it really means to be prosperous. I especially recommend it to people who are looking for change in their lives but haven’t yet decided what that change may look like. Definitely pick up a copy of the Lifeonaire book. It has been life changing for me and many others. If after reading the book you are ready to live your own vision, you may be interested in the Lifeonaire 3 Day Get-A-Life Getaway.

  1. This sounds like it will be a great book. You peaked my interest. Looking forward to reading it.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hey Kasey,

      It is definitely worth a read. The principles discussed in the book are solid. I have accomplished things in my own life I can attribute directly to Lifeonaire and talk to several people regularly who are using those principles to make big changes in their own lives and achieve their dreams!

  2. Interesting post! I take it that the book is non-fiction? I will have to check out this book as I think it’s something that will relate with me. Thanks, Curtis.

    1. Hi Curtis,

      The book is written as a fictional narrative but the principles the characters discuss in the book relate to real life. I think this book will relate to most people in some way. In my case, it was a pretty specific example when they were discussing buying a boat. In the book, they had a very specific boat in mind that cost over $500,000. After some discussion, they realized that it wasn’t the specific boat Alex wanted but the experience that boat could provide and that he could have the same experience renting a boat. The difference is huge! You can wait until “someday” when you can buy a $500,000 boat or you can rent a boat today and start living it now. There are a ton of decisions in life that work out that way.

  3. Couldn’t agree more. Too many people are blinded by possessions and money! In todays world it seems too many people have become sheep. Get up, go to work, get off, go to bed, and repeat. My cure has always travel! No other times in my life have I felt more free and fulfilled! Make sure to live each day to the fullest! As they say, Carpe Diem!

    1. Very true! Many people are living the life the world has chosen for them. Lifeonaire helps you build your own vision and change the rules of the game! It’s hard to lose when you make the rules. My fiancĂ© and I love to travel a lot as well. It’s part of my vision. Travel is a great way to find new life experiences and make memories.

  4. Thank you for your help on this book. I’m all for learning new things and since you’ve personally read this book I’m going to take your word for it and test it out myself. I definitely stand by the statement that success is different for everyone. For me: success is freedom – the freedom to be where I want, whenever I want and for however long I want. That is the almighty goal my friend, and I won’t stop until I get it. Thanks for everything!

    1. Hey Brandon,

      Your definition is success is true for many people. In the pursuit of freedom, it is decided the best way to get there is to make more money. “If I could only make $30k more this year, I’d have more time to do the things I want.” You see this on late night commercials when a “guru” is pitching their wealth building course from the hot tub of a mansion. They sell you with the idea that it will create freedom. The problem many experience is that the businesses they put in place ultimately work against that goal and they may have more wealth but not more freedom. Having money is not a problem, but it is a problem when your money has you.

      One of the great things about Lifeonaire is that it presents the idea that you can start experiencing the things you want in life right now. Obviously for most, being where you want, when you want, and however long you want may not be an overnight change, but you can certainly start taking steps in that direction. It all starts with building a vision of where you want to go. What many have experienced is if they focus their vision on building the life they want, many times their financial success follows in line as well. There are many success stories of people working 1/3 as often and making three times the income!
