|Last week, I had skin cancer removed from my nose
James wants to come up with a more interesting story as to why I have a bandage on my nose. He was thinking we could tell people we decided to take up kickboxing and it didn't work out well for me. I had asked you a few months ago for a more interesting story to explain my wrist injury. I am starting to wonder if my warranty has expired. You know how things tend to break right after their warranty expires.
Okay, the real story is last week I had a skin cancer removed from my nose. I am really glad that James realized I needed to have it looked at by a dermatologist. I am not sure I would have ever realized that it was skin cancer. I knew if I had a mole that changed shapes that I needed to have it looked at, but did not realize that a small thing on my nose that looked like a pimple could be skin cancer. It was there for over 6 months and bled any time I washed my face. If you have something like this, get it checked out. The dermatologist said anything that doesn't heal should be looked at.

#5 Estate Planning Mistake - Thinking Children Don't Need Inheritance Protection
What if your child or grandchild inherits $100,000. What is he or she going to do with the money? I ask this question when I give seminars and get a lot of different answers, but all the answers have one thing in common: they all involve spending the money. Even a really responsible 18-year-old might buy a house they cannot afford or spend it on things that are not a good decision in the long term. If you do not specify what age you want your beneficiaries to inherit, then they receive it at 18. Also, what if after someone inherits something from you they get divorced, have creditor problem or get sued? The money you have left to them is the vulnerable.
