The 4 Essential Elements:Legacy Preservation
We look at our financial life in two phases; one while we are living and the other when we are not. We refer to these two phases as, your life and your legacy. Think of estate planning as asset protection once you are no longer physically able to make choices and decisions. The goal of estate planning is to ensure that what you will always be in control of your wealth, while you are still living and after you have passed on.
