Female entrepreneurs need just as much estate planning and preparation as males. After all, you have worked just as hard, if not harder, to create your net worth. Though the thought of mortality is something no one wants to face, planning your family and your estate’s future is imperative. Therefore, consider these tips for planning as a female entrepreneur.
Where Will Your Business Go?
If you have business partners, you are most likely thinking they are best to receive your portion of the business. Before you do that, however, consider your family. Do they rely on the income you make from your business? If you were to pass away, how would they survive? Instead of passing your shares to a business partner, consider passing them to a family member who has shown interest in the business.
Create a Super Team
You most likely already have a team of advisors that help you run your business. These can include accountants, attorneys and even insurance agents. Use this team and their expertise to help create a solid estate plan for your business and your loved ones. This team should be aware of your goals and what you need in order to protect your company and your family. Most likely you already have a professional relationship with these individuals; therefore, they can help adequately plan for your business and its future.
