Having a carefully crafted estate plan in place before you die or can no longer make decisions for yourself that goes beyond a “who gets what” set of instructions is a conversation you should have sooner rather than later. Having total control over how that process plays out is valuable. It puts your affairs in order, so you have peace of mind knowing your loved ones can carry out your wishes once you are gone. And yet, so many people delay getting started — often because the conversation is uncomfortable.

We completely understand. No one wants to talk about and plan for the day they are no longer around. But having a plan is the best gift you could give yourself and your family. And it comes with incredible peace of mind.

Still on the fence? Here are a few inspirational quotes about estate planning that might make the decision to get started a little easier.
