Ep 112 The Inheritance Playbook with Chad Holmes

Have you heard these inheritance myths?
Myth #1: My parents don't need a will because everything will automatically go to me.
Myth #2: Inheritance planning is only for wealthy families.
Myth #3: I'll figure out the details after my parents pass away.

  • Strategize now for smooth inheritance transitions later.
  • Gift thoughtfully to make the most of your wealth.
  • Streamline the transfer of your wealth efficiently.
