slide28

Most effective way to have an honest family discussion – and the family does not even need to be there!

Possibly the most important component of the entire system.

Nothing is more important than the people in the estate plan.

Helps the parents get a clear look at how everyone is thinking.

Helps identify potential problem areas.

Is best way to discuss critical issues without stress.

slide29

Morrison Family Vision MatrixJohn Morrison

How do I envision the use of ranch assets to support John and Donna in their retirement years.

How do I envision the continued operation if John and Donna are not able to contribute work.

How do I envision the operation in the event John and Donna need long term care.

How do I envision which parts of the place should be sold and which parts should be inherited by the Morrison children.

If I were to receive my inheritance in life insurance cash instead of land, would I be in favor of that?

slide30

Morrison Family Vision Matrix

Fictitious Family – Any resemblance to any other person or family is purely coincidental.

Want to get the debt paid down. Maybe some expansion in the future if all agree.

John and James will work together with each having specific responsibilities.

Get the debt paid down. We need to work on some sort of formal change of ownership.

James and John working together, but eventually James taking over.

Operate as normal and after dad and mom are gone, split it in two for each of us boys.

We’ll want to do some traveling in retirement, but do not want to jeopardize profits to do so.

James will have to purchase some shares from us so we can have a retirement.

Ranch income should give mom and dad some support if the ranch is profitable, but we should not sell assets to support their retirement.

At this time the ranch pays all of their expenses anyway, so it should not be a big change. Support should be given with some sort of allotment.

The ranch should support dad and mom in their retirement, but hope they do not sell assets to pay for their retirement.

James can take over. He may be able to pick up a hired man or two. I am sure Will won’t come back. I don’t think Jenna is interested in helping out.

James will make the decisions and operate the place. Hopefully, the grandchildren will be old enough by then to help out.

I would have to hire some help. There is no way I will work with Will if he tries to come back.

I would be willing to help out in any way I can. I invite the opportunity to contribute on a daily basis.

At this time, I could not consider coming back, but as a shareholder, would want some input as to how the place is run.

We have long term care insurance to handle that.

I would hope they have nursing home coverage.

The ranch would always support John and Donna if affordable.

I sure hope they have that covered by insurance.

We have insurance.
