Some of my postings under Begin with the End in Mind have been about life insurance and end of life documents. The focus has been on organizing personal affairs to make it easier for those you leave behind.
I never thought that I would hear about the importance of these things while watching Wendy Williams interview a guest on her show. Wendy is a fun, engaging and intelligent talk show host, but the subject matter is not normally about finances and personal legal matters. I listened intently as she interviewed Star Jones about a movement Star has started called Rhonda’s Rules, A Women’s Guide to Getting Her Affairs in Order.
I hope you will click here and learn more about Rhonda and the important information we all need to consider to help those we leave behind. It is a compelling story and the information Star shares is really important. Star tells us that only 40% of women in this country have wills. Are you in this 40%?
Be confident and proactive, even if it is a little work to create and maintain your own personal “Affairs in Order” notebook. Call your best friend, ask if she has her personal affairs in order. Team up and hold each other accountable. When you finish give yourselves a reward by going to the movies or lunch or heading to your favorite spot for a glass. It is work, but so worth it and so worth celebrating the feeling that you have done all you can.
Until next time.
