It’s not often you get to sit down with a lawyer to have a free chat. But that’s what the Marketing department at King Financial Network got to do with their very own Director of Estate Planning, Russ Nesevich, ESQ. He’s a seasoned leader in the industry who put’s the PRO in PRO-tecting legacies and speaks from the heart when it comes to Estate Planning. We even got him to leave the Marketing team a little something in his will…well sort of.

NEAL:

What’s it like to be “Russ Nesevich, Esq…God of Estate Planning” ?

RUSS:

I’m just a simple man Neal. Estate Planning is my passion.

NEAL:

Can you have passion about Estate Planning?

RUSS:

It’s about preserving legacies and that makes me passionate. Knowing that a family’s or individual’s assets are protected according to their wishes is very important to me.

NEAL:

Rumor has it that 60% of Americans do not have an estate plan in place. Truth?

RUSS:

Truth!

NEAL:

What gives?

RUSS:

There’s a misconception that you need to have a lot of assets to bother with putting an estate plan in place. And then there are those that think that if they die, the family will just know what to do with their things.

NEAL:

And that’s where it all can go wrong. Am I right?

RUSS:

Correct. When family is involved you want to be very clear about your wishes.

NEAL:

Is that rule #1?

RUSS:

It can be.

NEAL:

Let’s make it rule #1.

What’s rule #2?

RUSS:

Ha. There are a lot of rules in estate planning. And every situation is different, but a biggie is naming guardians to raise and protect your children should something happen to you. Also ensuring that the beneficiaries named on assets like life insurance, IRA’s, and 401K’s align with your plan. Again it’s all about protecting your legacy.

NEAL:

Why do I feel safe around you?

RUSS:

Comes with the territory.

NEAL:

True.

I’ve seen your public presentations, webinars, and seminars on Estate Planning. They are top notch, educational, and dare I say entertaining. You are like the Tony Robbins of Estate Planning.

RUSS:

Well there is only so much you can do to make Estate Planning education entertaining. But I try. I even created a free downloadable guide to Estate Planning Like A King just to get the word out. And I host a free 30-MINUTE WEBINAR ON ESTATE PLANNING every month.

NEAL:

Have you ever thought about turning it into a musical? People love musicals.

RUSS:

No.

NEAL:

Do you sing?

RUSS:

I don’t.

NEAL:

That could be a problem.

Ok enough about estate planning.  What’s your favorite dessert?

RUSS:

Chocolate mousse.

NEAL:

Do you dream in color?

RUSS:

Yes.

NEAL:

If I was in your will, what would you leave me?

RUSS:

My Peloton bike.

NEAL:

Can I go through your house and pick something else?

RUSS:

No.

NEAL:

Well at least I’m in your will.

RUSS:

Pretty sure that was a hypothetical question.

NEAL:

Lawyers. Am I right?
