"Meeting Derek, hearing the reality of retirement planning, and learning what proper investing looks like truly open my eyes to what I (we) would need when the time to move into La Boca Vista come upon us – and more importantly, he gave us the tools we needed to be in control of that decision so we could make it happen on our timeframe."

"This book is a gift for even the long time business owner, Derek is seasoned in retirement planning and illustrates the details in thoughtful and easy to follow terms. Not only was this book informative and not dry as this topic can lend itself to be but it sent me into a tailspin because I never considered state taxes on retirement, and many other insights carried through these chapters. This book helped point out many blind spots in our financial planning, and tools to get ahead for retirement planning."
