September 2017: Many of us have received inheritances,  life insurance proceeds, or have sold a business, won a lawsuit or even a lottery, but few of us really plan how best to use the money.  While its natural to want to celebrate your new found wealth, don’t blow what should be a great opportunity.  Instead, park your money and don’t rush. Talk to experts and family. Consider taxes and all the possible uses for your windfall before you make any decisions that might change not only your life, but the lives of those you care about. And don’t forget to update your estate plan, including the chance to create a meaningful legacy.
