A concern common to all estate and financial planners is “How Do I Get My Clients to Realize How Important it is to Do Planning?” Regardless of how knowledgeable and skillful the planner may be, getting in front of a client and motivating that client to take positive actions is an ongoing challenge for all of us. Clients do not have to be especially wealthy or old or ill to need planning. Many planning issues are best addressed when assets are modest and youth and good health are present. We have compiled a list of suggested reasons to plan and issues to be addressed thanks to the contributions of a number of talented people working as financial planners, accountants, attorneys, trust officers and insurance agents (to whom we gratefully acknowledge their contributions) in an effort to share our collective best ideas to motivate both clients and their planners to get the planning process underway.

The suggestions below are not intended to be listed in any order of suggested importance – nor does their inclusion in one category suggest they are in any way exclusive to that category.  To the contrary – financial, estate, tax, retirement and insurance planning is a collaborative process. Many skills and talents are needed to be brought together to best serve the interests of our clients.
