Here’s the biggest ‘Holy Crap’ moment of all.
It’s when you realize that you or your partner don’t have a clue what to do should something happen to the other.
The statistics are sobering. There are 2,438 sudden deaths that occur every day in the United States.
250,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year.
Every 65 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer’s disease. It is estimated that nearly 500,000 new cases of Alzheimer’s disease will be diagnosed this year.
The percentage of Americans who die without a will is 58%.
I am a business owner, wife, mother, pet lover, and someone who spins way too many plates in life and work. I’ve also had a couple of breast cancer scares that had me questioning my own mortality. It’s sobering stuff.
That’s why — for a good portion of my 30 year marriage — I was super happy that my husband Steve took care of most of our personal finances. STEVE is a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ Professional.
Heck. He’s a financial planner. Wading through money stuff is his bread and butter.
To be completely honest with you, it just isn’t my jam.
But here is the trouble with that.
If his life depended on it, I realized that I could NOT put my hands on the most important documents in our financial life in a moment’s notice.
I started breaking into a cold sweat when I thought about it.
I kept hearing about crazy life accidents that were happening to friends, family, and even the people I connect with on Facebook.
– A 62-year old friend got the flu, checked into the hospital, and died.
– A business colleague got a second recurrence of lymphoma after having dodged that bullet the first time around.
– Another friend got served divorce papers on New Year’s Day after 32 years of marriage.
It used to be that these things were happening to other people. Now, it seems, they were happening more and more in my own circle of friends.
That was my wake up call.
At some level I knew that I could be next.
Steve and I both run successful businesses and agree on the big things. And, as it often happens in marriages, partners divide roles and responsibilities.
It just made sense for him to handle most of the personal finance matters for our household. Or so I thought up until that fateful day.
Most of us are so busy living life that we are not thinking about what we would do if something should happen to our partner and how we would navigate life if left alone for any reason. It is that failure to anticipate that situation that can have many of us in a world of hurt at the worst possible time.
That’s the problem we aim to support you to solve.
As you journey forward with us as your guides, we make several promises to you:
We promise to make it fun and bring some lightness to the important task at hand so the future you dream about can unfold with you sitting powerfully in the driver’s seat.
Rev up your engines and put your pedal to the metal.
We are going downtown fast, and it’s going to be fun.
This is NOT like Traffic School where you stay in a room with bars on the windows until you’ve done your time. This is an engaging, educational, FUN experience you have with your partner from wherever you live, work or play.
In the comfort of your own environment, you’ll learn a lot and get important tasks completed so the rest of your life can be smooth cruising to epic new adventures.
We’ll hold your feet to the fire to put all your crucial information in place so you can quickly find, store, save, and share the information with the right people. There are 16 short hop trips to take to get your Organizer completed.
Be guided by two experts who will hold you accountable for getting this done with a pre-call and a guided experience that includes live office hours and awesome engagement in our Client Only Facebook Community.
Take a self-guided tour and gain access to the replays of the pre-call and the office hour sessions, while engaging with us in the Client Only Facebook Community on a schedule that suits your style.
Either way you travel, expect to invest 5 – 10 hours along the journey, depending upon the complexity of your financial life.
Now if you are hesitating for any reason, let me call out a powerful truth right out of the gate.
You might be thinking, “Oh boy. I can’t wait to spend hours getting my financial information organized.”
You might be thinking, “S-N-O-O-Z-E.”
But it’s time for a powerful wake-up call and a fresh perspective.
Financial information organization is actually the gateway to the kind of power and control most folks hunger for the most.
And often then realize that they need it often when it is too late.
This single task — once completed — will bring a result that the love of your life will always thank you for.
When life turns on a dime — as it often does — the last thing you want to worry about is where to find crucial financial information at a moment’s notice when the moments matter most of all.
Unlike boring books that explain what to save, how and why in so much detail that you find yourself reaching for the NO DOZE to stay awake and alert, the Get It Done – Make It Fun Virtual Road Trip offers you a date with destiny to get the job done.
We won’t let you get stuck in the “Procrastination Roundabout” because we are getting this DONE together.
The Life Goes on Roadmap™ Virtual Road Trip is about no longer being a passenger along the road of life, but taking the wheel and claiming EMPOWERMENT and CONTROL.
That means actually getting important things done and having the right tools at hand to get the mission accomplished.

“Do you think you’re prepared for an emergency? I thought I was too, until I completed the Life Goes On Roadmap. Thanks to Nancy and Steve Juetten and their “Get it Done, Make it Fun” approach, I was able to organize every bit of financial and personal information into one place that is now easily accessible to my husband and our family in the event of a tragedy.
Nancy and Steve have outdone themselves putting this program together! They have thought of EVERYTHING – account numbers, house operations, vehicle information, personal possessions, insurance information, credit cards, passwords… the list goes on and on! Take the Road Trip with Nancy and Steve and give your loved ones the best gift ever – peace of mind.”
Dr. Susan O’Malley
“Nancy and Steve are sincere in helping you to get motivated to organize your information for each other. This is truly a gift to each other. It will be a document that we will hopefully not use in a long time, but now we have it if something untimely happens and if we keep it updated, we will have it for the inevitable loss of one of us. And, we can also hand it down to our sons, when the last one of us dies so that they can care for us or settle our affairs in an easier way.”
Blair and Mary Lou Shean
“Just took a Life Goes On Roadmap Road Trip with Steve Juetten and Nancy Juetten! What a fantastic adventure with two pros that have put together an exceptional roadmap to be fully prepared as Life Goes On. If life took an unexpected turn, do you have a clear map and access to all that’s important for those you care about? I highly recommend you engage with this and share this with those you care about. Huge Thank You Nancy and Steve!!”
“The Life Goes on Roadmap made a boring task that I knew I should do fun and easy. It feels so empowering to have all of our critical information in one place. I feel like it is this great gift that we will leave our boys. They won’t have to search for anything because we now have even the nitty gritty smallest detail recorded.
“Thank you for all the valuable information and for your follow up email. I truly appreciated having your plan in place for my personal future. My husband Brian and I have worked together and I believe all is in place: That which I need to know in case of his death. I have copies of all important paperwork, and Brian typed me up a “cheat sheet” including even the place in his office to find the key to his desk drawer where he keeps all personal info!
I feel I am totally “in the know” with our finances, both of our final wishes, and all tax and insurance dates and such.
Again thank you for putting together this valuable and very important information. I have forwarded it on to several friends and hope they take advantage of it.”
“Thank you for following up. My wife & I went through the material on a recent road trip. It was a positive conversation and useful guidance for much of our records inventory. We appreciate you sharing the document with us.”
“Thanks for putting the “Life Goes On Roadmap” checklist together and making it available. I am happy to report that, yes, we have taken steps to put our financial life in order. Using the checklists provided in the document is helpful and a great tool to use.”
