Make A Will, Do It Right! Or The One You Don’t Like Will End Up With All Your Stuff!
The purpose of this book is to help you think about estate planning and what you fear may happen after you pass away. I want you to think about how to prevent your worst nightmares from becoming reality for loved ones. This book will help you understand key questions you should answer to define what you want to do.
When you consider your estate plan, you should plan in two specific areas: INCAPACITY PLANNING and ESTATE PLANNING. Incapacity planning spells out who will help you if you are alive but can't do things for yourself. Estate planning describes how your estate will be handled and who will get your assets if you have passed away. Incapacity Planning and Estate Planning are not just for rich people. Proper planning is for anyone who wants to have personal order in their lives, wants to alleviate confusion, wants to put the right people in charge of their estate and wants to give their assets to the people of their choosing.
The strategy that I give you in this book will guide you as you answer eight specific questions related to two planning areas.
