There are many nuances to wills that people are not knowledgeable about. Unfortunately, not being in the know can affect the owner(s) of a will’s objectives and their intended beneficiaries.

Jason Smith, Estate planning attorney and Elder planning attorney is available to talk about this story.  (Bio)

Some key Points That Jason Smith Can Expand On in an Interview:

  • You can legally disinherit almost anyone except your spouse.
  • Your heirs (spouse and children) have a lot of rights for objecting to a will. No matter how airtight, they can get what is called a heckler’s veto. They can drag out litigation and make it so expensive for the estate that they end up “extorting” money to make it end. Continue reading “The Shocking Truth About Wills”

4 Things Parents Should Avoid With Their Kids

What Dr. Cira Can Say in an Interview on Raising Children:

  1. Do not make your children your life. This may sound crazy because for most of us parents, we often feel like our children ARE our life, but here’s the problem. When we build our life around every aspect of our children—their desires, their hobbies, their opinions—several negative things tend to happen: a) we neglect our our own needs; b) we neglect our partner/relationship/marriage; c) we teach our children that the world revolves around them. Of course we want to prioritize quality time with our kids and carve out time in our schedules to support them in things that interest them, but please: also make them go to the grocery store, also keep up with your own interests/hobbies and also continue to spend quality time with your partner.

Available for Interviews: Dr. Mimi Secor.

Here are some things that Dr. Mimi Secor can say in an interview on this topic:
My first suggestion is a make or break concept! If you “Fail to prepare, you
are preparing to fail.” This is especially true when you anticipate being

If your workout clothes are already in your car and you change at work, you’ll be ready to hit the gym (if opened now) or exercise at your favorite outdoor location. It’s hard to leave the house once you get home—especially after a long work day. Continue reading “Staying Motivated: Working Out After a Long Day”
