Time waits for no one, and as such, it's important for families to review their wealth transfer and Financial House strategies. Legacy and estate planning is a complex topic that can be challenging to navigate, but it's crucial to ensure that your assets and estate are well-documented and prepared for the future.
As we collaborate with our clients, we often hear that they are worried about leaving a legacy to their children, grandchildren and causes they care about deeply. There is no perfect age to start your estate plan, but today would be a great time to begin to take action.

In a world becoming more interconnected and technologically focused, we all feel like our lives are speeding up, not slowing down. With a million things pulling us in opposite directions, it’s easy to be distracted and let once-prominent goals slip right between our fingers.

Is it that time of the year again to make New Year resolutions? I’ve had some time to think about my own and realized how important it is to set the pace to accomplish them. If you’re like many, we end the year only to realize that we’ve abandoned the original New Year’s resolution, then set a new one for the upcoming year. So, let’s take control of 2022 by setting realistic goals and not forgetting about them. Make a promise to yourself that you will check back on the list and reflect. Cheers to 2022!
