So August is National Make-a-Will Month. Who knew?




So August is National Make-a-Will Month. Who knew?

Getting a will isn’t the most pleasant of tasks, and consequently, too few people do it. A recent survey of more than 2,000 people found that 64 percent don’t have wills. The biggest reason cited by folks: They just never got around to it. Some said they didn’t want to think about death.

You might believe that only wealthier families need a will. You’d be wrong.

“Having a will is important for every family, regardless of how much money they have,” says Elisa Shevlin Rizzo, managing director and trust counsel at Fiduciary Trust Company International in New York, an investment management firm. “It provides some peace and certainty about how things will be handled after an individual has died.”

If you die without a will, the state could get involved in the costly job of trying to determine who in your family gets what. “It may not be what the individual intended and it becomes much more complicated,” Rizzo says.

Yes, one barrier is the cost, often $1000 or more.  But here at Shopmeek.com we remove this barrier for all.  We can set you up a membership so that  will provide you a top attorney in your state or province to draft your will, living will, and advanced medical directives, all at no extra cost to you over the $20 membership fee.  And the lawyer will even handle it for you over the phone so you won’t have to take time off work or continue procrastinating #ShopMEEK

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.
