The show is about gaining a new perspective. That is a great idea. It is hard to get out of our heads and
see things how other people see them. I see this all the time in estate planning. People think they know
what they want and what they need, but someone else looking at the situation sees things differently.
You can get a new perspective on your estate planning by talking to an estate planning attorney. Let the
attorney look at things and tell you what he or she thinks. You might find you like the attorney's
perspective better than your own.
