It seems that everything these days moves faster, and we just don’t have enough time to look at things as thoroughly as we needed. Even when it comes to topics that can be critical to improving our lives, people don’t have the time to piece together information from multiple sources to see how it applies to them. In short, we’re in an age of “TL;DR” which means we need single sentence summaries because six paragraphs leads to “Too Long; Didn’t Read” habits.

When it comes to legal topics, especially estate and Medicaid planning, there is so much information and disinformation out there, that people get overwhelmed and simply give up. Worse still, people may search for simple answers they want to hear rather than more complicated but factual answers. When you have the equivalent of the Library of Alexandria ten times over available through a smartphone, sifting through hundreds of search results just becomes too daunting.

That is why in an age of TL;DR we are starting to see the emergence of online courses that will curate the right information in easily understood topics and following a logical agenda that leads you down a path to understanding. The key reason I launched the courses I have (and I am still in the process of developing new ones) is so that everyone can learn about these topics through an online environment and not just my legal clients learning one-on-one. So far, we have generated the following courses with corresponding prices:

  • Medicaid Planning Crash Course for $497
  • Estate Crash Course for $97
  • VA Pension Crash Course for $97
  • Special Needs Planning Crash Course for $97
  • Trust Funding Course for $197
  • In-Law Planning Course for $197

When it comes to legal topics, saving your time and money is important, but only if you can still get the right information to help you stay safe, plan ahead, and enjoy life.
