Nothing is certain in life, the old saying goes, but death and taxes. And we’ll admit that, under most circumstances, neither subject is very uplifting to talk about.

Making sure we’ve planned well, financially and otherwise, can ease our anxiety and make our lives more comfortable and fulfilling ... at least until the inevitable happens. Until then, you’ve got this guide.
