Is this too far to “fetch”… a $12 million trust fund for a Maltese? That is how hotel heiress Leona Helmsley famously disinherited her grandchildren.
An outlandish story… or is it? Wealth, estate and retirement planning is too often left to the dog – in a sense.
And it is traditional estate planning that fosters this kind of indifference.
One of the great kings in Jewish history, King Hezekiah, received a message from God that he was going to die. He asked God for more years. God granted him nine more years on the condition that he would get the affairs of his estate in order.
God kept his promise by giving him the time but King Hezekiah didn’t keep his promise. He gave little attention to the future – his and the next generation – with an attitude of, “eh, they’ll figure it out just as I did.’
The result of his indifference was the destruction of his kingdom and the demise of his family divided by money and conflicts. We now have a story of what not to do.
This is your wealth… this is also your TIME.
While it is still today you have the opportunity to make decisions that secure your lifestyle, future and benefit the futures of subsequent generations forever!
Wealth is more than money. Don’t just plan for your future, live it right now.
