In business and in life, passing on values is like tossing a pebble into a pond.      

When you drop a pebble in the water, a dozen ripples are created from that one small action. The pebble is gone but the ripples keep repeating, and spreading to create more. If this one pebble can do all that, imagine what could happen if we all drop a pebble. There's no telling what we can do.

Estate Planning and Happiness

Nothing is more universal than the desire to be happy. Ted Leonsis has made a lifetime’s study of that desire and how to achieve it -- he shares what he's learned in his book, The Business of Happiness: 6 Secrets to Extraordinary Success in Work and Life.

Mr. Leonsis reveals: 1. How success follows happiness (not the other way around) 2. The importance of having a "double bottom line" -- and how you really can do well by doing good. 3. The key to finding your own higher calling. 4. Why you should have a life plan for happiness, just as an entrepreneur has a business plan to launch and sustain a business. 5. The six essential secrets that lead to happiness and success. 6. How Ted lived his journey from a Brooklyn kid to sports team franchise owner -- and the lessons learned along the way. 7. What was on Ted's list -- and what should be on yours.  (Yes, Lena is working on her list.)

Estate planning allows clients to focus on what they want as they determine what happens to them, their loved ones, and their assets while they are alive and well, in the event of disability, and after their deaths. Estate planning enables clients to protect their privacy as well as reduce unnecessary costs, taxes, and stress. In short, estate planning clients are concerned about the well being and happiness of themselves and of their loved ones. As a matter of fact, years ago we called living trusts “loving trusts” because they represented acts of love. There just might be a “double bottom line” here!
