“Estate Planning for Women: Learning From the Mistakes of Celebrities”
SPEAKER: Wendy Payne of Centurion Wealth Management
DATE: Thursday, November 14, 2019 
TIME: 6pm to 7pm
LOCATION: 205 Worth Avenue, Palm Beach
COST: No Cost for Members. Reservations Required at Info@FWEL.org
Guests $20. Payable in advance.

We all know the importance of Estate Planning. Many celebrities don’t take time to plan accordingly, and often after the death of an iconic figure, we learn of missteps that could have avoided years of court battles and cost heirs millions of dollars. This engaging session is designed to expand your estate planning knowledge, and maybe provide a little entertainment also. Our presentation by Wendy Payne from Centurion Wealth Management is meant to be the spark to motivate us to take action!

Whether you are a successful and accomplished woman, or if you aspire to be, we all suffer from “we don’t know what we don’t know.”  This is especially true when it comes to money, investing and estate planning.  What do you need to know to ensure your financial wishes are honored if you should become incapacitated?  How can you ensure that your assets pass along to your heirs the way you intend?  What is the best method to capture your wishes and intentions in writing without breaking the bank?

In this interactive session, we will learn from the planning mistakes of celebrities such as Prince, Whitney Houston, Heath Ledger, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson, Florence Griffith Joyner and others. With money and wealth into the millions, you would think the “rich and famous” would be able to afford sound estate planning advice. Celebrities also suffer from “we don’t know what we don’t know”, and many just don’t take time to plan accordingly.  Too often after the death of an iconic figure, we learn of simple blunders that trigger years of court battles or cost their heirs millions of dollars.  In hind sight, most missteps could have been easily avoided.

You may be thinking: “But I don’t have millions of dollars to worry about.”  It doesn’t matter.  Whether you have $10,000, or $500 million, estate planning is equally important for you and your family. Wendy Ann Payne is a Founding Partner of Centurion Wealth Management, an independent wealth management firm. She has a passion for helping clients gain financial independence and personal empowerment through insight, experience and education.
