Carefully plan what to include in your will

One of the most important things you can do to protect your family members is to have an estate plan in place when you pass away. The cornerstone of this is the will. When you write yours, you don't have to do anything extravagant. It can be fairly simple as long as it has the legally required elements and doesn't contain anything that may have it tossed out.

Proactivity in planning your estate

If you are a proactive kind of person, you probably get a lot of kidding for expecting the worst to happen. However, to you, it just makes good sense to anticipate the worst and make a contingency plan. This may mean having an alternative plan when your daughter wants an outdoor wedding, overpacking when you go on vacation and creating an emergency savings account just in case.
