Your Life, Your Death, and Your Legacy
If I were to ask you the name of your great great grandfather could you tell me? Not many folks can. But if your great great grandfather had set up a trust that was today paying you $50,000 a year tax-free I'll bet you could.
Death isn't something we like to think about, and I guess that's a good thing. After all, I believe that most people are optimistic by nature, and the subject of death isn't high on the optimist's list!
Yet, we cannot deny that this life will one day come to an end for us. We will then leave someone behind to pick up the pieces and carry on. Leaving a positive legacy is all about easing the strain on those who will have to do that.
Have you given any thought to those who will be following in your footsteps?
