Did you know that there are only 3 places your money can go after you die? Having a proper estate plan and life insurance coverage ensures that your assets are distributed in a manner of your choosing, and that your loved ones will not experience financial hardship following your death. A carefully outlined plan also aids in avoiding an expensive and public probate process. It’s important to discuss what is best for you and your family to make sure that the parameters for your family’s continued success are in place BEFORE something happens to you. When you are gone, your money can only go to your heirs, to the government, or to charities of your choice. Let’s make sure your money ends up in the right hands.
Planning for retirement is so much more than determining your time horizon, estimating your expenses, calculating your after-tax returns, and trying to figure out your risk tolerance. We know from experience that most of your net-worth is tied into your business. Perhaps more important, we also know that your reputation, life’s work, and identity stem from that business as well. What are you retiring to? Let’s find a passion or cause you can get behind. Retirement is about planning to live, and we look forward to helping you put a plan in place to do just that.
