    I come from a land downunder
    I was at my solicitors today and she mentioned that I hadn't updated my will in a few years - and my circumstances have changed quite a bit since the last change.

    This got me thinking what would actually happen to my business if I died tomorrow. My wife knows her side of the business very well, but what good is looking after customers if there aren't any.

    Now alot of you guys are young and have no dependents, but I do know that some of you, like me, have mortgages to pay and families to support.

    I therefore decided to include a section in my will giving my wife instructions on how to log in here, and what to post to ask for help. I also gave her a list of a few members I really value and trust to seek advice from.

    I do have a fairly hefty life insurance policy - but thats a one off, she would still need to keep the business going to live comfortably.

    Has anyone else given this much thought.

    (don't worry I'm not dying - I'm actually one of the fittest and healthiest 39 year olds I know, but I'm also a risk taker and spend alot of time at sea by myself, and you just never know)

    You know BHW is valuable when people start to include it in their will. :)

    I will say good step OP.
    Here is a real story. I lost a guy in my contact (Friend of my room-mate). He has invested around $20K (1 around 1 million in my currency), which was never recovered. Everyone was shocked at incident and no-body cared at right moment, and when the family came to know about money, things were lost.

    Hey just because your the fittest and healthiest 39 year old doesnt mean death wont come to you earlh, its nothing to be afraid of not saying that you are, but i admire your precaution in case it happens. I know people, students and former teachers who were at the peak of physical fitness, sadly they passed away before their so called time.
    Death is one of those things where the angel has already set out to take you, he wont stop, and no one will ever know when their appointment is.

    Kudos to you... total admiration for making sure that your family is well taken care of no matter what happens to you.

    That was also instilled in me by my Father.

    I have actually spent upwards of 25K training others to run my businesses in the event that something would happen to me... online training, face to face classroom training and even have a boatload of videos showing various processes I do.

    I'm 54 and up until recently thought I was in outstanding shape (a little thing came up recently) but I started the training over a year ago as a matter of good family/business practices.

    I found it silly your asking for opinions, not that your sorting your will, my lord.

    You find it silly that the OP has made a post to get others thinking about taking care of their families? He didn't ask any opinions at all... the closest he came to asking an opinion was "Has anyone else given this much thought."

    That is hardly asking for an opinion but more so to elicit thoughts on what others are/have done... sort of a public service message actually.

    I said I found the thread silly. Seeing as I'm not entitled to an opinion without being neg repped by some child who sits around his PC all day. I'll speak to you when your earning more then 10k$/month.

    Greg (BassTrackerBoats) is one of the most helpful and respected members here, he surely earns more than $10k per month, and he's probably older than you so have some respect.

    Isnt there a website that you give all your passwords and messages and other stuff to, they then send you an email like every few months and you confirm your still alive, if you dont confirm then they assume your dead and all your stuff is emailed to whoever you appointed all your online stuff to.
