Sudden Death Checklist by Internationally Recognized Business Consultant Releases First Podcast

Announcing the initial podcast in a series designed to prepare business owners and their professional / family caregivers for the worst-case scenario of an untimely death.

Sudden Death Checklist

​​​​Internationally recognized business consultant, Jack Veale and his “Sudden Death Checklist” launch team announced today the very first Sudden Death Checklist Podcast titled, “Sudden Death Checklist - Intro for Families and Business Owners.”

In this first podcast found on YouTube, Jack Veale gives the audience an overview of the reasons behind, the necessity of, and the use of his Sudden Death Checklist.

Jack Veale explains, “Business owners have to take seriously the added pain and confusion that a family and business takes on when the business owner dies and critical issues are not organized and questions concerning the deceased’s wishes have not been made clear. By taking the time to work through the Sudden Death Checklist with close advisors and family members, everything can be put in order, lessening the negative impact on a family in their time of loss and grief.”

About the Sudden Death Checklist Workbook:

The workbook is intended to be used by business owners, trustees, and executors in conjunction with their key advisors (such as the family/corporate lawyers and wealth advisors) and their spouses/partners in working through a thoughtful process of gathering all of the information that their family and company managers would need in case of the business owner’s sudden death.

This workbook is also designed for the professional and family caregivers of the business owner. As one user of the Sudden Death Checklist said, “If you’re still breathing, your family needs this book!”

The workbook includes comprehensive checklists and instructions for an array of topics including:

·         The Pre-Funeral Checklist

·         The “live” Funeral Checklist

·         The Post-Funeral Checklist

·         The Pre/Live/Post Funeral Company’s Checklist

·         The Veteran’s Checklist

By using the “Sudden Death Checklist” that the business owner has wisely left behind for them, the surviving family and his company have easy access to all the documents that will be needed to process the estate and transition the business.
