For many Americans, a significant goal of estate planning is to avoid probate. A revocable living trust, unlike a will, offers a fast, private, probate-free way to transfer one's property after death. Although a living trust is not a complete substitute for a will (it doesn't allow you to name a guardian for a child, for example), it is definitely a more efficient way to transfer property at death, especially large-ticket items such as a house. Every student will work with an attorney to make themselves a valid trust.
Almost everyone can benefit from having a last will and testament. This course will teach you how to make a will. After learning about wills, every student will work with an attorney to make themselves a valid will.

Join us for a lunch and learn (lunch included!) with speaker and Enid native, Bill Fournet. Our greatest successes aren’t achieved with a perfectly laid-out plan. Instead, they are accomplished by how well we adapt to the obstacles we encounter along the way. As we continue to evolve how we work amidst unpredictable change, understanding the differences between the map versus the terrain is critical for creating a high-performing team. Think of your map as your plan for what you want to achieve and where you want to go. But in this everchanging world, the terrain is often unknown. This is where adaptability becomes key. Strategy is the map. Disruption is the terrain. In this transformative keynote, Bill leverages his experience not only as a Fortune 500 executive coach and consultant, but also as an avid and skilled backpacker. He illustrates how you can use three proven strategies to create a map for navigating any terrain and transforming obstacles into opportunities. Guided by this new understanding, you and your team will be better prepared to achieve your desired outcomes and will emerge stronger through any disruption.
