about

If you are an adult Canadian who uses e-mail and surfs the internet, this book is for you. In a unique and humorous way, this former military officer and tech executive shares what she's learned about the estate industry and the taboo topic of preparing for one's own death. Preparing for death doesn't need to be scary or foreboding. It can actually be liberating and energizing. Join Your Digital Undertaker in an exploration of death in the digital age in Canada, which lifts the lid on how the deathcare and estate industry works today, and tackles it through the project management and digital lens.

This exploration includes simple diagrams, easy to understand scenarios, and user options that require only a couple of mouse clicks. You'll learn your digital life is not isolated from your physical life, as technology is the new player at the estate planning table. Cracking the code to digital death and its afterlife requires deciphering the code for your regular and physical life. By the end of this book, you should feel armed with questions and a perspective on how to tackle your digital life in the context of your overall estate.

You might even walk away inspired to get on with dealing with your will and estate plan with estate planning professionals. If you are a named executor in a will or appointed in a Power of Attorney, this book is for you as well, as it might motivate you to ask a lot more questions about your role before you get handed "digital hell in a hand basket". For those having the challenging conversations with their parents, family members or clients, let Your Digital Undertaker ask some of the basic questions and open the door for a meaningful discussion....
