worst part is people also hate talking about it with other people. and then using good accountants and lawyers is soooooo expensive...
I highly no let me rephrase that "I strongly"
recommend a good Financial Advisor
(I don't mean the one at your local bank - they seam to play musical shares too often - change branches or you meet a new one every time you have a question about your money). The kind that work for you and look out for your money.
Once you find one ... you be thankful you did when you retire ... Good Luck!
PS. Ask around your friends etc ... see what they do and then make a choice.
