There’s a saying, “leave a legacy, not a mess.” The Missing Pieces Plan was created to ensure the “softer issues,” often overlooked in traditional plans, are incorporated into your plan so you leave a legacy, not a mess. Filling in these missing pieces provides you and your loved ones the greatest gift – peace of mind.

 

Planning now is the best gift you can give your loved ones and the Missing Pieces Plan is here to help!

The Missing Pieces Plan is a unique book that includes uniquely crafted worksheets designed to put together the pieces of your Missing Pieces Plan in four sections: Legal, Letters, Insurance, and Legacy.

 

 

Every chapter has an accompanying Missing Pieces Plan Worksheet to assist you in putting the pieces in place. The Missing Pieces Plan worksheets allow you to take action and complete each missing piece.

 

 

The Missing Pieces Plan is for everyone. Grandparents, parents, new parents - anyone with loved ones.

 
  • Written by a CPA and CFP® with over 20 years financial and life experiences
  • Unconventional guidance that helps you fill in missing pieces of traditional financial plans
  • Includes uniquely crafted worksheets to help readers put their wishes to paper
  • Will provide you and your loved ones with a priceless gift of peace of mind

After a move across the country from California to Florida, I became increasingly aware of how our plan was lacking. We had named guardians for our daughters and now they were 2,400 miles away! Scenarios played in my head – the “what ifs.” I was driven to action to make sure our wishes were known for our daughters and that I was filling in the missing pieces like finally completing our Wills, advance directives, power of attorney and a letter to our daughters’ future guardian (should they ever have one). 

 Getting these pieces together certainly gave me peace of mind. But, when my mother in law went in for surgery and looked to me for guidance regarding what documents she would need completed prior to surgery so that we (her family) would know her wishes, I uncovered more missing pieces. I realized many family members and friends were missing these pieces, too. 

 At the same time, a dear friend was in her final days of a long battle with cancer. I asked if she had stipulated her wishes for her funeral, for her last days, and her wishes for her four legged children. It pained me to wonder if her friends would know what to do once she was gone? And, most importantly, would they know what she wanted? 

These life events and a passion for helping others led me to create the Missing Pieces Plan. It became clear how many of us are missing pieces of our plans. I think these ‘missing pieces’ are the most important and provide our loved ones with the priceless gift of peace of mind. As one friend calls it, it is the greatest love letter we can write. 

 My mission is to help other families put the pieces of their Missing Pieces Plan together and give their loved ones a priceless gift! Please join me in the launch of the Missing Pieces Plan and give this priceless gift to your loved ones!

1. It's enough to publish 444 full color copies!

2. To me, the number "4" represents the four letters in the word LOVE. The book was a labor of love for me and intended to encourage more letters of love for people just like you.

3. Lastly, we went low knowing our supporters will help us meet this goal and beyond!

Risks and challenges

We know our friends and family will be great supporters. But our biggest challenge is reaching the greater community as well as faith-based organizations so they are aware of Missing Pieces Plan. We are reaching out and contacting as many organizations as possible.
