What does estate planning have in common with a storm? (Video)
Here is what estate planning has in common with a storm.
Its all about how much time you get to prepare for the mess.
Take a snowstorm for instance. The weather person starts predicting it a week out. Then as it gets closer, the weather person starts giving more details. You have time to prepare.
When you know a snowstorm is coming, you can prepare. You usually have days of warning about it. You make sure you have your supplies stocked up, that your flashlights work, you have wood for the fireplace, salt for the driveway, and more.
But tornadoes are different. You don’t usually get enough warning to do much preparation. The sirens go off and you head to your safe area.
Estate planning is more like being prepared for a tornado. You don’t have time when the storm is coming to go to the store and stock up. You need be prepared ahead of time and just grab what you need and go. You need to have a safe room or safe area designated before the storm hits. Your safe area should be pre-stocked with what you need.
Just like with a tornado, events in your life rarely give a much warning before they happen. You need to be prepared ahead of time so that your family can just grab and go. You need to know who will be in charge if you can’t be. You need to keep your family out of probate court because court is stressful and expensive.
If you knew when major events in your life would happen, you would keep putting off preparation until just about time.
Get prepared. Be prepared. Spare your family from the need to clean up after the storms of life.
