If we asked you to hold your breath or stop blinking, how long could you do it? A minute, maybe two?
Now, what if we asked how long you could go without being moved by the latest headline news? Impeachment unrest, Hong Kong protests, Brexit stress, climate change, inverted bond yields, the price of oil… you name it. There’s plenty to think about these days.
Sometimes it takes celebrities like Whitney Houston or James Gandolfini, to show how poor estate planning can be costly and disruptive in so many ways. Philip Seymour Hoffman’s untimely death on February 2, 2014 ended a great film career and we mourn for both the man and the future film-going pleasure we will all now be denied.
You’ve saved money all your life. Or, maybe you sold your business after investing years of hard work. You’ve chosen the smart path and have a comfortable nest egg as you set sail into retirement.
However, always be on guard! Criminals seek to trick you into willingly handing over your hard-earned savings.
We hope we have your attention.
