THE TAX CHICK PODCAST LIVE!!!! The Estate Planning Toolkit - the importance of collaboration amongst advisors! (Part I)

Welcome to the first of a two-part LIVE EPISODE of the podcast with my special guest Jos Herman. In this episode we cover: (1) what is estate planning? (2) Estate freezes (3) Trusts... check out the next episode to learn more about shareholders' agreements, corporate-owned life insurance, and joint ownership of property.
So excited to release this two-part series on estate planning - this episode was recorded LIVE in Banff, Alberta at the CPA Small Practitioner's Forum!   My special guest and I are talking all about what estate planning means to us - and how completing your "estate plan" is about more than just the three-legged stool (the will, the power of attorney, and the health care directive).  Estate planning is a lifelong process - your plan will evolve over time! 

In the first part of this series, please join us for a discussion on... (1) What is estate planning?  (9:20); and (2) Estate Freezes (13:05); and (3) Trusts (20:35).  And of course, you will also find out Jos' favorite podcast and her favorite emoji (hint: it involves a hoodie... a.k.a. "bunnyhug" in Saskatchewanian).

This episode is not just for advisors... if you are a business owner and have ever heard about "estate freezes" or "trusts", this episode is for you too!  We chat about how these tools are used, and some key things to keep in mind when utilizing them as part of your estate plan.  We also chat about what "probate" is, what information can be found on a public court file, and the impact of having entrepreneurial beneficiaries.

A huge shout-out to the organizers of the Forum, and to the lovely folks at Proshow Audiovisual and Tall Girl Conference Planning who helped to make this possible!
