Creating a vision for your family is the first step to building your legacy. What do you imagine your family doing for generations to come? Is going to college a priority? What about entrepreneurship? Maybe you may want to leave behind a legacy of owning real property? Once you've created that vision, you can move on to the specifics of making it happen.
What are the steps necessary to bring your vision to pass? Do you already own valuable assets, or will you be using Life Insurance to leave an inheritance to your loved ones? While your vision may be intangible, your Estate Plan can include practical steps you can use to bring that vision to pass.
Thirdly, write it down. Even the most powerful legacies can be destroyed if not properly protected. Your Estate Plan, when properly executed, ensures that your vision and the steps you've taken, create a foundation for your family and a legacy you can be proud of.
