When selecting an executor, think about your beneficiaries

In a recent post, we discussed some of the roles and responsibilities that an estate administrator or executor will typically have. In that post, which can be read here, we noted that one of the primary functions this person will serve is to manage relationships with beneficiaries and ensure the decedent's wishes are fulfilled.

Estate plans that protect assets and privacy

It’s flattering to have fans, but it can be frustrating when they watch everything you do. It’s not just the Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous that interests people; fandom continues after death. A recent example is Hugh Hefner. The Playboy founder passed away at the age of 91, and now people are asking what will become of his estate.

What does an estate administrator do?

Losing a spouse, parent, child or other family member can be one of the most difficult events in a person's life. Not only are you likely experiencing grief and overwhelming loss, but you may also have to navigate the legal system as the executor or estate administrator. 

Business planning? It doesn't have to happen overnight

People who start a business know that it take an incredible amount of work to not only open a business, but to keep it running. Considering how much work it takes to start and maintain a successful business, it is crucial to have in place a plan for your business to continue operating when you exit the company or pass away.
