Legacy Planning can be even more important than estate planning.

Estate planning is important, but legacy planning can be even more important because it will communicate to your heirs your wants, wishes, and needs. Legacy planning involves financial security, the distribution and management of your estate, and protecting your estate and business.

If you pass away unexpectedly, a legacy plan will state your wants and wishes and the direction you want your financials to go. It communicates your lifetime experiences so your heirs know what you would want to do with your business and estate in the event that you pass.

 In estate planning many factors involve your heirs; in legacy planning this also holds true but it additionally involves you as the number one factor. When it comes to legacy planning you come first! Get your financials in order before planning for your heir's. Think of it this way: how can you plan for your heirs if you haven’t planned for yourself?
