Personal Assets Inventory Workbook© and AssetCommander™
By Donna D. McMillan
AssetCommander™ software program developed by DataBasix Technologies
Fires, floods, windstorms, earthquakes, thefts and loss of life are devastating … emotionally, physically and financially. These major life-changing events make us even more aware that we must “be prepared”… at all times … for any type of loss or disaster! The best plan is do it now, while there is still time and it’s foremost in your mind! Later could be too late!! In a lifetime, everyone (everywhere) will experience one or more of these situations, unfortunately. It is very important to keep complete records of all the key people in your life who should be contacted in emergencies, along with the locations of all your vital records and possessions. These easy-to-use organizing products are beneficial to you, your clients, family and friends.
DON’T BE A DISASTER VICTIM!
The “inventory process” is painless and extremely satisfying. McMillan & Company Professional Organizing has personally helped clients compile a complete inventory (room-by-room) of all items in their home and office. We used the Personal Assets Inventory Workbook© and/or the AssetCommander™ software program. The workbook and software backup fit in a small safe deposit box or firesafe box, along with original receipts, photos, and video tape of all valuable and precious possessions. We strongly recommend that copies be provided to your insurance agent, attorney, and a close friend or family member.
The Personal Assets Inventory Workbook© was originally developed in 1993 following major disasters (fires and earthquake) in the West Los Angeles area. The author and Professional Organizer, Donna D. McMillan, was a former licensed insurance agent. She realized there was a serious need to assist and protect clients and other potential victims locally and nationally. Soon afterward, DataBasix Technologies created AssetCommander™ software. These helpful inventory products received national acclaim when both were featured in Kiplinger’s Retirement Report, February 1996 issue.
Additional publicity appeared in Physician’s Money Digest, Senior World Newsmagazine and Ask Anne and Nan, a syndicated column.
“Why You Need A Home Inventory” – published in Kiplinger’s Retirement Report – describes the reasons for and methods to be more prepared before an emergency or disaster.
“If you can’t prove you owned it, you can’t claim it. That pretty much sums up the insurance battle. Put assets on the record with AssetCommander.”
—Physician’s Money Digest
“A home inventory can come to your aid in a number of circumstances. AssetCommander helps you record inventory information and makes updating easy.”
—Kiplinger’s Retirement Report
