Estate Planning focuses on what to do with the stuff after a person dies. Life Planning is a more descriptive term. Life Planning takes into account the different stages of life from child-rearing to retirement. Our goals during those different stages of life change as well and plans can evolve and change. It is never too early to plan, but it can be too late.
