Filed under: Estate Planning — Raymund Rasco @ 3:47 pm

I’ve been told in the past that it’s easy for me to discuss Estate Planning, Elder Law and Financial Planning with my loved ones because I do it for a living. “You don’t even need to leave your ‘comfort zone’ to discuss it.” So I am now leaving my comfort zone and putting my money where my mouth is. I left my ‘safe space’ a year ago, and now I am doing it again by sharing a video of it with you and the world (explanation below.)

I get it. Telling someone important to you that:

  • they need to take care of their health care documents because you want to know their wishes,
  • their tax situation needs to be reviewed because you think they might be paying too much,
  • or you want to know how to pay for their long term-care, can be very difficult and awkward.

You know what’s even more awkward? Trying to have a conversation with a sibling about Mom’s care when you don’t know what Mom wanted. Or finding out that you will have to use most of your assets for your spouses care. Or realizing your adult children never named a guardian for your grandchild because you never asked if they had completed their Plan? I don’t have to tell you which has the more tragic outcome: having an uncomfortable conversation now, or waiting for event to happen and regretting never having had the conversation.

So here’s where I am putting it out there and showing you my awkwardness, but first a quick background: Last summer we went a cruise with about 50 family members. It was fantastic. I’ve always enjoyed singing, but I’ve never done it outside of a small group of extremely close friends. But I decided one night, to sign myself up for karaoke. It was to be in front of a room of strangers or the family members. I’d have to face my family for the rest of my life, and I would have to stand & perform in front of strangers, but I did it. You can probably sense my discomfort in the video, I was still shaking for a half-hour after doing it. But I am happy I did it. If for no other reason than to prove a point today.

Now I’m sharing the video with you (and everybody else on my mailing list.) But then it’s your turn. But you don’t have to do it alone: we can help you with the potentially uncomfortable dialogue about your or a loved one’s planning. Just reply to this email & we’ll make it happen. Click below to schedule your free call with me. 

And in case you know anyone from “American Idol” or “The Voice” – feel free to forward it to them & let them know they can schedule a call with me too 😉

Have a great day,
