You Only Die Once – How To Control What Happens To Your Estate

Listen on Apple Podcasts Stitcher spotify

Estate planning is something everyone can benefit from, but there are some red flag events in our lives that make it really important. And most people don’t know that minors can not inherit, so unless you want the courts making decisions for them, you’ll want to consider creating a plan.

Thanks to our guest, Jeff Althaus of Althaus Law for making this dry subject fun and super insightful on today’s Facebook Live Episode! And for sharing incredibly valuable information with family members wondering how to protect their assets, and how to talk with an older parent about Power of Attorney, wills, trusts and more. He event wrote an easy-to-understand book called You Only Die Once.

In this episode you will learn:

  • How to avoid probate (and what probate is!)
  • Why you (and the older adults in your life) need a power of attorney
  • How to leave money to grandchildren (or any minor)

We also discover that Jeff swims with sharks. 🦈 Why? Probably because he loves things like Tax Accounting and needs some actual excitement in his life! 🤣 (And his entrepreneur wife is someone he considers a maverick in his life.)
