Steer Clear of These DIY Fixer-Uppers
Tackling a DIY project at home — and with a little inspiration from HGTV — can be a way to save money and stretch your fix-it muscles. But a DIY will, using a templated form you find online or buy at the local office supply store, can lead to problems. That’s because wills aren’t one-size-fits-all.
This month, we’ve been on the Don’t DIY bandwagon, writing blog posts, filming Facebook lives and sharing our thoughts on social media.
Here’s a round-up of much of this activity … so pick your favorite way to learn (reading or watching videos) to see why we’re so passionate about this topic.

If you have a DIY will in place, we can review it for you and make recommendations for what should be addressed. We can also create a will and estate plan for you — a personalized approach that’s a much better option. Call or email us for a free consultation to start the process.
We 💙 Google reviews!
