Recently, I took my family to New York City, the Big Apple, the city that never sleeps, as sort of a celebratory rite of passage for my oldest son’s 16th birthday. As I sat on the plane preparing for takeoff, for what seemed like an eternity, I had that feeling in the pit of my stomach… You know, a little anxious, a little scared, but mostly excited. “What if something happens?” I thought as my wife and 16 year-old sat beside me. Luckily for my family, I have my foundations or foundational documents (GDPOA, HCPOA, Living Will, Will) in place just in case something happened to me. Others are not so fortunate, although with a little planning and a quick trip to the office, they too, could have that peace of mind.
Without proper planning, the assets that you have worked so very hard for, for an entire lifetime could all be lost. And then you would be unable to pass your assets down to your family, and to leave a legacy to help your children and grandchildren. A legacy built upon your hard work.
Many in Manhattan know this. Wealthy Manhattanites hire lawyers to draft trusts and implement wealth protection strategies to care for their families well into the future.
Why should you not be afforded the same protection? Why should your family not be given the same chance to build upon the foundation you have laid through your lifetime of hard work?
Empires like Manhattan were built over many generations… Each generation building upon the foundation of the last… Passing on wealth and legacy.
