Estate Planning Lessons From “Downton Abbey”

downton abbeyWho says television isn’t educational?

Here’s a clever piece by Corey Dahl called 8 estate planning lessons from “Downton Abbey.”

Writes Dahl:

“The Masterpiece Theater hit “Downton Abbey” offers helpful lessons in a lot of things. … In between all the backstabbing, messy relationships and ego-fueled showdowns, the miniseries is also an in-depth tutorial on the prudence of estate planning. Don’t believe it? Here are 8 valuable estate planning tips, straight from TV’s grandest estate.”

You may not have realized it, but the show is chockfull of lessons on the importance of diversifying your portfolio, updating your Will, having a business succession plan, and even buying disability insurance.
