About year ago, I’ve started to spend more time and resources in research and study on advance legacy planning instead of insurance management which I’ve been doing it for the last 5 years. I would really like to tell the world that it’s not what you have done that matters, it’s how you get it done.
Let’s take a look at the result of these two famous gentlemen estate planning.
First, is the charming and handsome Paul Walker.

Paul walker legacy planning result, is to let everyone know that, he want his daughter to have everything he got, to show how much he love her. What do you think when you first saw the news? For me I just recall what my parents has taught me since I’m was young “it is very dangerous to let others know how much you have especial on your wealth.”
(WILL will become public record at some point after the testator — the person the will belongs to — dies)
Another person, the smart and creative Steve Jobs.

Steve Jobs’ legacy plan only allowing those who are chosen by himself, to be inform on the specific part that they inherit. Nothing more and nothing less, which from the title of the news quote his plan “remain as private as his was”. Personally I’m not a big fans of Apple Tech product, but I do have to say that the way Steve Jobs’ get his legacy planning done is truly brilliant. Because this will not only passing his wealth to the persons he prefer but also makes sure all of his estate beneficiaries stay away from many unnecessary troubles.
Hopefully this sharing will benefit you for your legacy planning/ estate planning. Remember, it’s not what you have done that matters, it’s how you get it done. Before I end this, I do also would like you to spend sometime to ask yourself this important question “Why do you want to get it done?”.
