Estate planning means preparing for the care of yourself, your family, and your assets if you die or are incapacitated. It means a lot more than "getting our wills done," "naming guardians," "setting up a trust," or "getting a durable power of attorney." It means beginning your next journey with the end in mind. It means envisioning how you want yourself cared for, how you want your family cared for, and how you want your assets used at the end of your life. It means learning about the ways that your vision could go wrong, and taking the legal steps necessary to avoid any scenarios that could threaten your goals.
Business planning means creating a legal foundation and building careful legal habits for your business that protects you, your business, your family, and your assets if a conflict in the business arises. It entails a lot more than simply filing LLC articles of organization or S-Corp or C-Corp incorporation with the state, setting up an operating agreement, reviewing contracts and leases, or creating contracts and agreements. It means becoming aware of all of the risks that you face in your business and taking the legal steps necessary to avoid losing everything if any of those risky situations becomes a reality.
