The Roadmap To Create Your Will in 2023

THIS IS THE YEAR we will get our wills completed! PERIOD!

You don’t have to be rich to have a will or leave a legacy. We all want to leave a legacy, and a big part of that is having a will. We also want to make sure the people we care about like our parents and grandparents have a will too. There’s no time like the present to get it done!

During our legacy-building session, “You Need A Will! The Roadmap To Create Your Will In 2023,” we shared where to start and strategies to get your loved ones on board.

Black Wills Matter: Navigating Tangled Titles In Real Estate

One of the reasons why the Black community (as a collective) has trouble building generational wealth is because the lack of estate planning. Without a will, assets including real estate, bank accounts and investment accounts can get lost or it can be chaotic to recover.

During this conversation, we have a candid conversation with financial advisor Jini Thornton, CPA, and estate attorney Tiffany McKenzie, esq about the complexity of titles in real estate when one does not have a will.

Black Wills Matter: The Gift Of Estate Planning

Having an estate plan (including a will, healthcare directive, and power of attorney) is the ultimate gift that you can give to your family.

In this video we speak with Jini and Courtney, two women who had different experiences dealing with death in their family (one whose mother had a will and one whose mother did not have a will). And we hear from estate attorney Tiffany McKenzie who offers her perspective on the topic.

You don’t have to be rich to need a will. If you have a bank account or a house, if you have anyone in your life that depends on you, and if you want to give clear directions on what you want to happen when you are too sick to take care of yourself or pass away, then you DO need a will, and minimally you need a healthcare directive.

The process of completing or updating your estate plan doesn’t have to be difficult or feel sad. Let us show you how to complete your will, healthcare directive, and power of attorney so you can leave your legacy and have peace of mind.

We also teach you how to Take Care Of Your Damn Self!

We’ve created a curriculum to help parents empower their adult children to be financially independent. Too often we see parents continue financially supporting their young adults for way too long, which impacts their ability to pursue their own goals like retiring or traveling.

In Take Care Of Your Damn Self, we have a chapter specifically about legacy planning and how your parental legal rights shifts as your child becomes an adult.

Did you know that once your child turns 18, you no longer have access to their medical records, financial records, or even their college grades (even if you’re footing the bill)?

If you’re a parent of a young adult, you need this go-to guide that will help you and your adult child master topics such as taxes, credit, insurance, and more!
