A life worth living is a life worth recording.
This book is to help you keep track of your financial growth and plans and as an aid to your executors once you pass on.
Another purpose of this book is to comfort and assist those you leave behind in finalising your affairs, by giving them access to valuable information. The contents of this book are your final words on all the things that are important to you.This manual is for anyone, parents, couples, singles, young or old, anyone who wishes to organise their affairs, both for themselves and their family left behind.
The purpose of this book is to ease the burden for your loved ones in finalising your affairs, having all the information available so that your executors can do their job, while removing some stress for your family when you pass on.
Your executors need this information to administer your estate. If you have no family or your family may not be aware of the full extent of your financial position, your executors may have a hard time locating all of your assets and knowing how to wind up your affairs.
But also, how many times have you tried to have the conversation about what your family should do in the event of your death? They may have avoided the conversation, as if in doing so the unthinkable will not happen. Or if the conversation does take place they are often so preoccupied thinking about how they would deal with the loss that nothing is really heard or remembered.
