Synopsis: In 2002, with his business partner, Adam Zuercher, Tony Hixon launched Hixon Zuercher Capital Management -- a fee-only wealth management and investment firm. Tony wanted to help clients ensure that they wouldn't outlive their money -- and possibly even have enough saved to accomplish their bucket-list goals. However, after several years of running a numbers-first business and serving his clients well in their financial lives, a family crisis changed his thinking.

Tony's mother retired from her job as the director of a hospice agency, and she quickly fell into a deep depression as she lost her purpose and fulfillment derived from a lifelong career she had been passionate about. On March 22, 2011, Tony's mother tragically took her own life. After this life-changing tragedy, Tony made it his goal to help pre-retirees not repeat the mistakes his mom made as she transitioned from her career into retirement. You need a plan for both your finances and your lifestyle.

With the publication of "Retirement Stepping Stones: Find Meaning, Live with Purpose, and Leave a Legacy", Tony Hixon will help ensure that your retirement brings you pleasure, serenity of mind, and the enjoyment of a life well-lived. That your transition is from success to significance. That you find a newfound hope and a newfound purpose. That retirement brings you your best years.

Critique: Exceptionally well written, organized and presented, "Retirement Stepping Stones: Find Meaning, Live with Purpose, and Leave a Legacy" is essential reading for everyone, but most especially the aging Baby Boomer generation. Practical, comprehensive, understandable, "Retirement Stepping Stones: Find Meaning, Live with Purpose, and Leave a Legacy" must be considered an essential addition to community, Senior Citizen Center, college, and university library Retirement Planning, Financial Risk Management, Wealth Management, and Financial Planning collections. It should be noted for the personal and professional reading lists that "Retirement Stepping Stones: Find Meaning, Live with Purpose, and Leave a Legacy" is also readily available in an inexpensive digital book format (Kindle, $0.99).
