Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

This class is an exploration of the basic things that must be done to create an effective estate plan.  It answers the questions:  What is probate?  What is a will?  What is a trust?  How much do they cost? How do I decide which approach is right for me?

The class reviews the seven reasons why most plans don't work as intended, and offers a strategy to address those problems. Particular focus is placed on the importance of proper titling, the need to train your helpers, and the need to update the legal and financial parts of the plan.

The class is highly interactive; questions are welcome.  Participants will receive a loose leaf binder containing forms and checklists to begin their planning, or to review an existing plan. 

The class is held in Suite 102 at 160 Gould St., Needham, MA.  It generally lasts about 1 ½ to 2 hours, depending on the level of interaction, and the number of questions.

To inquire about the availability of late registrations, call 617-624-3350.

Business Transition Planning 101

Business Transition Planning 101 (BTP 101)

Sooner or later, everyone leaves their business -- either horizontally or vertically. Achieving a smooth vertical exit requires education, counseling, creation of a professional team, funding and maintenance -- just like any other estate plan. And when an owner retires, becomes disabled, or dies, there can be significant issues with maintaining value for the benefit of the family and for other owners.

In Business Transition Planning 101, business owners learn to think of their business as an asset, not just a job, and to lay the foundation for a successful business transition. The class identifies some of the overlooked problems, and introduces a system to avoid those problems.

This workshop is led by Bill Coyne.
