Estate planning is often thought about only in terms of numbers, property, assets and finances. While estate planning does involve all of these things, the primary focus of a good estate plan is how people will benefit from it through your efforts and legacy. Estate planning is about maximizing the benefits of your work while you are alive and providing for family and loved ones after your death.
Keeping in mind the real importance of estate planning will help individuals stick to their plans or give them the push they need to start planning through even the tightest of economic times. Estate planning is easier than most people think, and will create peace of mind that is well worth the investment.
