Estate Planning Awareness Week

Andrea Shoup

Creating an estate plan is one of the best ways to protect yourself and your family if the unexpected were to happen. The loss of a loved one can cause dramatic changes in our lives. In the days, weeks, and months after a loss, you should have time to grieve and reminisce, but too often, people are thrown into a difficult situation where they have to go through probate because their loved one did not have an estate plan in place. Don’t make this mistake! Between October 16th and 22nd, we recognize National Estate Planning Awareness Week, which provides us with an opportunity to create or update our estate plans.

The simple truth of the situation is that most people are uncomfortable having the estate planning conversation. Nobody likes talking about death, incapacitation, or the lingering “what ifs” that come into play. It may not be a fun conversation, but it is one of the most loving and meaningful conversations we can have with our families. If we can push through the discomfort, we can make some challenging and tough times easier for everyone involved.

In honor of National Estate Planning Awareness Week, we want to help you and your family start the estate planning conversation and answer any questions that may arise. To do so, we’re offering a huge discount on our estate planning essentials webinar. Our webinar usually costs $200, but we’re slashing that price and offering it for free. All you have to do is visit to register. We’ll discuss many important estate planning topics that will help provide you with some direction.

Our webinar will help you better understand the basic elements of wills, trusts, powers of attorney, and health care directives. You’ll discover how to ensure your assets are distributed according to your wishes, avoid probate, and minimize estate taxes. Homeowners, business owners, married couples, parents, retirees, individuals from blended families, and just about anyone else you can think of will benefit from attending this webinar.

When we speak to people at a workshop or host a seminar where we discuss what happens during probate and how to avoid it with an estate plan, around 90% of people will tell us that they were unaware of this information and the need for an estate plan. That’s why National Estate Planning Awareness Week is so vital. There are so many people who don’t know the ins and outs, and it’s up to those of us who do know to help everyone else. We hope to see you at our webinar!
