As a business owner, you need different types of estate legal services than other individuals. If you don't plan to protect and pass on your business in a specific manner your business could fail and your family may not inherit it upon your passing.

The time to plan your estate is when you are alive and healthy and thinking clearly.

The best way to ensure that you don’t lose any of your property and that your family inherits your assets is to have a clear plan. Estate planning requires a lot of legal knowledge, and it is, therefore, necessary to entrust the process to a qualified lawyer who understands the nitty-gritty of the entire process. Don’t let your family in destitution or let years of hard work go to waste. Estate planning can be a daunting task but one that is worthwhile in the long run.

Your estate plan or living trust is where you state your succession plans. This action plan tells company executives exactly what to do when you are incapacitated or deceased. Its purpose is to assure that your business continues to run successfully without you at the helm. Appointed trustees will manage the business in accordance with the succession plan you detail in your planning for your estate.

Author's Bio: 

Hello, fellow entrepreneurs great to meet you online. Thanks for stopping by my business blog, and taking the time to read about me. Marsha Kelly @TwitterMarsha Kelly Business Blogger

My strongest belief is that the safest, most secure and most lucrative job you can have is owning your own business.

I learned this valuable lesson the hard way by investing time, energy and emotion into a corporate career only to be fired unceremoniously -when I dared think creatively outside the box. My entrepreneurial journey to starting my own business was first by necessity but then turned into a great blessing of prosperity and freedom. Graduating from the school of business hard knocks and learning how to start, manage, and then sell my business for over $1,000,000. Learned more about real life business this way that I learned in my four years at the NYU School of Business.

Currently, I’m focusing my energies on this startup nation’s blog, and my marketing consulting practice for small businesses. This blog is my passion shared for the benefit of other hard-working business owners who want to learn about products, services, and software that can help them on their entrepreneurial journey from someone who has walked a mile in their shoes. My contribution to you is my, being in the trenches, real-life, business experience reviewing these products and information so you can make the best buying choice for your company. Other sites online host biased reviews by the product’s manufacturers or have general-type reporters writing only what the company wants you to read. Here at, Best4Businesses.com, we confidently believe in all the products recommended by its editors. In most cases, we have purchased the products, just as you the business owner would, and written an honest review of our findings – all of it the good, bad and the sometimes downright ugly!

I am a Selfgrowth.com Small Business Expert

My goal is to educate and empower the maximum number of people to start their businesses for their families prosperity, and our great nation’s economic future is fueled by our entrepreneurial spirit. In fact, this SBA Small Business Administration report states that “Once again, it was not large corporations driving this train, but entrepreneurs and small businesses powering us out of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression. Small businesses created nearly 2 million of the roughly 3 million private-sector jobs generated in 2014. More than 7 million of the 11 million jobs created during our recovery have been generated by startups and small enterprises.”

Every day I will be online searching for ways to help you meet your goals more quickly for your small business. One day it could be about accounting software, the next it could be a business guide or even a technology product. Additionally, a team of other passionate and enthusiastic business owners will be joining me to review items of which they have significant expertise such as online business ideas, manufacturing techniques, and retail store sales strategies.
