Episode 29: Ready to Die: Estate Planning 101 feat. Wayne Hood


Money drama is the last thing people should have to sort through following the death of a loved one. Unfortunately, many of us have heard the stories about families locked in conflict as they try to pool funds to pay for the funeral or memorial service or bickering over who is entitled to family heirlooms or property. Too many of us have firsthand experience with the family fallouts that unfold when a loved one dies. Estate planning can help avoid so much of this.

Estate planning includes the process of documenting your wishes for how you want your assets and personal property distributed upon your death or incapacitation.



During this conversation, estate planning attorney Wayne Hood highlights:

  • Components of an estate plan including wills, trusts, power of attorney, advance directives, business succession, HIPAA authorization, and beneficiary designations.
  • Why estate planning is something everyone should do, regardless of income level or value of assets.
  • How estate planning can be used to protect and create generational wealth.
  • How estate planning alleviates some of the stress associated with the loss of a loved one.
  • Different considerations for those with children, those with family members who have special needs, and single individuals.
  • The benefits of working with an attorney and other professionals to design an estate plan instead of using an online template.
  • Why it’s important to start estate planning sooner rather than later.
