On this episode, Gino Barbaro sits down with Harry Barth, Founder and Senior Managing Partner for Barth Calderon LLP. Harry is the co-author of the book ‘Planning today for all your tomorrows’.
They talk about the difference in hiring an experienced attorney, versus relying on services like LegalZoom. As Harry says, it’s like self-medicating by picking out your own pills at a pharmacy instead of consulting a doctor. Gino shares a funny but serious quote: “Proper planning prevents piss poor performance!”
Harry and Gino highlight the top three considerations for hiring an estate planning attorney to get your family’s plan in order:
1. Price vs. Value – Don’t be cheap when it comes to ensuring you have peace of mind for the next 30 years. This WILL be worth it in the end.
2. Pain – This planning includes uncomfortable conversations, and there is no way around that fact. You don’t want to wait until it’s too late and you are forced to make decisions in an emotional state.
3. Mentality – Thinking you don’t have enough assets for this to apply to you is a poor person’s mentality. Thinking with a wealthy mentality includes long-term planning. No matter where you are on your journey of building wealth, it’s never too early to get a plan in place.
The proper estate planning attorney can guide you through making the proper choices for your family, using the appropriate tools to achieve your family’s goals.
Don’t spend more time planning your vacation than planning your estate!
