Art Steele: Estate Planning is for Everyone
About our Guest:
Art Steele is a business and intellectual property lawyer for creatives and entrepreneurs. She spent the first years of her legal career helping large corporations with tax law. After an encounter with Oprah Winfrey, she realized that she needed to do work with more purpose and branch out on her own. She started her own law office where she provided affordable, high-quality legal services to entrepreneurs and creatives. She is also the host of the Inksecure podcast and a partner at Creative Genius Law.
Today’s episode is about estate planning, and there is no better person to have on the show to talk estate planning than the amazing Art Steele. Her passion for estate planning and just helping us be better as a whole is truly inspiring. One of her passions is helping minorities build wealth through estate planning. We talk about discrepancies with minority estate planning, and the importance of home ownership, having life insurance, and passing on a legacy to generations to come.
- How it’s a myth that personal behavior is one of the biggest things that closes the wealth gap.
- We need estate planning to leave a legacy for our children, so they don’t go through the financial hardships that we went through.
- The people who really should have life insurance policies are minorities.
- There are so many benefits to home ownership including appreciation and having a tax write-off.
- Estate planning is an absolute necessity, and the key to generational wealth is to start now.
- If you have any intellectual property, you should have a trust that says who is going to manage that property.
