Some families manage to preserve both their assets and relationships because they add something important to the inheritance preparation process. When they incorporate Family Legacy Conversations, they focus on the values, lessons, wisdom and leadership that are an integral part of the foundation of the family. Advisors play a key role in helping families succeed. This success involves thinking beyond the traditional estate planning model. Advisors need a practical tool they can use to help their clients discuss what really matters most. In this session you will learn to use an ethical will as a tool for inserting the clients' voice, and your own, into the family legacy conversation.
