The emotional weight of estate planning may feel unbearable at times, bowling you over, grinding your nerves like sand in the gears. This process can bring on bewilderment, resentment, fear, greed and insecurity. The actual documentation of the estate plan is the easy part compared to figuring out exactly what you want the plan to say and do.
Estate planning may scare you off with its legal lingo or you may be avoiding it due to concerns about creating family feuds, spoiling your kids, having your intentions be misunderstood, taxation, lawsuits, and, of course, the most common wealth-based issue: fear of being taken for granted.
If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, you can take comfort in the knowledge that many others have gone through these same issues. This book will provide you with straight talk, common sense answers to the extensive collection of questions I've received from clients, prospects, family members, friends and colleagues over the years. From estate planning basics to the high-anxiety, complex issues, no question is off limits. What you experience here will help you untie those emotional knots holding you back and provide you with estate planning heartburn relief.
