Brag about yourself - what makes you great at what you do?
I am a writer with various fiction and nonfiction publications. I have two masters' degrees, teach at the college level, and have been tutoring writing skills, literature, and test prep for more than a decade. I conceived LifeStory when my grandfather asked to write his memoir. I interviewed him, recorded the interviews, transcribed them, and then edited his words so they read professionally and engagingly while sustaining his unique voice. Then I designed the book covers and inside, laid out pictures, and printed books for our whole family to enjoy. I got great feedback, and LifeStory was born.
Here is a little more about LifeStory:
LifeStory facilitates and sweetens the experience of writing an autobiography or memoir. Our staff of experienced professional writers conducts interviews, transcribes the interviews, and edits and organizes the content into readable and engaging prose while sustaining the subject’s unique voice.
The result is a professional, elegant, soft or hardcover book with pictures that is skillfully written in your loved one’s own words. It is the story, firsthand, of his or her most important life memories, milestones, and achievements.
Capturing the stories of our lives is important and beautiful. Passing on our legacy gives us a golden opportunity to reflect on our lives, to know that people value our stories, and to see our LifeStories immortalized in a beautiful book. It is an excellent activity for seniors, particularly for those who lack mobility, or who may be on the cusp of losing their fondest memories.
These stories are also beneficial to current and future family. They provide a stronger sense of roots by showing that we are part of an ongoing family line that stretches back in time and charges forward with momentum. So many of the stories I have come across are important for historical reasons as well, stories from people who have lived through WWII and the Holocaust, for example. A LifeStory makes a loving gift for a family to give to an elder loved one, or for someone to give to their family.
What types of business contacts are you looking to make?
Contacts in the field of elder care, but also anyone who appreciates the importance of legacy, of capturing stories and passing them on for future generations to have, enjoy, and learn from. Contacts involved with veterans, Holocaust survivors, cancer survivors, even young people with powerful stories to share.
