Begin the Begin

Begin the Begin "Once you begin, you are closer to the end than had you not begun at all" is a key mantra for estate, business, special needs and incapacity planning.

The simple mantra is a good place to start when addressing estate planning, business planning, incapacity planning and special needs and elder law issues as well as winding your way through the administration of an estate or trust. All of these subjects can be sensitive and difficult topics to discuss, a discussion many choose not to start. However, as simply stated once the conversation about these subjects has begun, you will be closer to finishing your plan (and be better prepared) than had no conversation been started at all.

Out of an abundance of caution and with the utmost respect for our seniors and their caregivers, we have postponed the launch of our upcoming series, Real Talk: The Essentials of Aging with Confidence, until further notice.
