Professional Development Day
George Mason University, Arlington Campus
Organizing Important Personal & Business Details in Today's High-Tech World
10 am - 3 pm ( Lunch included)
Join us for a workshop on modern-day legacy planning and organizing for both the individual and the business owners
These days our lives are reliant on technology. From online banking and binge watching our favorite series to electric cars and following the latest social media trends, our world today is a digital one. And as business owners, our organizing businesses wouldn't flourist without technology. We rely on it to host our websites, communicate with clients, track our financials and so much more.
Have you given any thought to what happens to all your "stuff" when (as my dad would say) you get hit by the ice cream truck? And what about your organizing business? In this workshop you'll learn why it's vital to consider organizing your important life details and how technology has the power to make things more challenging for our loved ones. You'll also discover what additional considerations business owners need to think about when it comes to succession planning. This workshop is designed to be highly interactive, so be sure to bring your thirst for knowledge and your devices (phone and laptop).
After attending this workshop, participants will:
- Understand the complexities associated with modern-day estates and businesses
- Learn what are digital assets and how the law treats them when someone passes or becomes incapacitated
- Explore ways how the information learned can be applied to organizing clients
- Discover the additional considerations business owners need to take into account when it comes to succession planning
