For most business owners the largest investment they have is their business and that is why they need to put a chain link fence to protect it . What would you think would make up that chain link fence ? Here are some of these items : Power of Attorney , Personal Will , Business Will , Solid relationship with bank , Shareholder agreement when there are more then one shareholders , various life insurance coverages , good general insurance liability plan , Holding Company and Trusts to name a few . Sounds complicated ? It is not complicated one exercise can take care of all these things and more a Estate Plan . You say you are not rich enough and do not need one , WRONG . You do not want to face the fact that you may get sick/disabled or die , NOT WISE . Many people do not want to risk opening a can of warms in dealing with family dynamics so they avoid the discussion all together which is DANGEROUS .Working as Advanced Family Enterprise Advisers we get to assist people deal with issues they sometimes buried for many years in a dark corner . Estate Planning gives you a piece of mind knowing you have left nothing to chance and in life as well as death you had your plan followed !
Internet is a wonderful tool and a valuable resource when you know what you are looking for . Some people believe that all you have to do is go on to internet and you can do things like incorporate , chose proper investments , chose proper insurance coverage and yes do your own accounting . I am amazed how intelligent people do stupid things like thinking they can become experts from reading something on the web . I recently had an opportunity to work with a engineers who just did not appreciate good legal and accounting advice and I informed him to go elsewhere for insurance planning advice . Price is not everything , to get good legal and accounting advice is worth the fee that a reasonable professional charges . I believe I being informed and we work with10 leading life insurers to get best value for clients but if they do not trust that we are busting our backs to get the best value I do not want a relationship with them. Buying products that do not fit your situation is like throwing your money into a fire !
