With the world rapidly changing and evolving, you would never know what’s waiting for you in the next corner. As entrepreneurs and business owners, it is just as important to think of yours and your business’ future as it is to think about its current direction and milestones. That hasn’t become more relevant and important before than now.
In this episode, we discuss the opportunities inside your business and estate legal structure created by rapid changes in asset prices and interest rates. Our conversation takes us into the details of how to maximize the current financial conditions to accomplish your estate planning goals and how to get ahead of potential changes in the estate tax exemption amount. We also discuss how every financial and tax year is unique and how consistently reviewing your legal structure helps you accomplish your goals.
