Episode Description

Everyone, regardless of income or net worth, has an estate. It may include minor children, assets like a home, car, computers, websites, business, bank accounts, retirement accounts, life insurance, collections and of course your online presence (Digital Property). The best way to get your Estate Plan started is to answer four simple questions: Where, Who, What and When. 1. Where will your children live if something happens to you and your spouse? 2. Who do you want to receive your things (either cash, tangible personal or virtual property)? 3: What things are your family going to receive and 4: When would you like your family to receive those things? Do you want your children receiving everything at 18 years of age? And once you have answered those questions it might be a good idea to think about a fifth "W". Wondering… I wonder what would happen if you or your spouse suffers a temporary incapacity. What types of legal document can be drafted now so you can stand in each other’s shoes to make medical or financial decisions. A new W that just happened Jan 1 2020. Will the Secure Act Impact Your Retirement Plan? Several provisions of the Act are worth highlighting, as they could have an impact on your ability to grow assets, manage taxes and protect retirement assets for your children. (503) 490-4020

Michelle Beck

Michelle is a 2-time, 9-year survivor of breast cancer. In 2017, she began volunteering at Breast Friends of Oregon, and in the process found support, encouragement and a tribe of women who understood exactly what it is like to hear the words “you have cancer.” This changed her life forever.

Michelle’s early career was spent as a paralegal and then as a C-Level Executive Assistant for entrepreneurs and start-ups. Organization and details are her jam; everything has its place and “rules” are to be followed. But, after becoming a stay-at-home parent and two breast cancer battles, all her rules went out the window!

Her second cancer journey led Michelle to a new career path at Breast Friends. In early 2019, she was hired as the Patient Programs Assistant where she made herself indispensable. She is now embracing the opportunity to host the Breast Friends Cancer Support Network.

Michelle is a fierce breast cancer advocate. She is working on a book to tell her story and loves to speak to audiences about how to move forward in the face of life’s trials. Her blog, “I Never Liked Pink” allows her the platform to, as she says, “overshare” the things she’s discovered on life’s journey. The good, the bad and the “What the F??” Michelle enjoys exploring with her husband Nate, son Jackson and 2 dogs in their travel trailer She loves reading books, watching movies and is obsessed with true crime and paranormal podcasts.
