Capture life stories while you can
My 95-year-old father died just two weeks ago, and as friends and family gathered to celebrate his life throughout the week, there were dozens of stories told about him and about the ways, large and small, he touched people’s lives. Born in 1918, a fighter pilot during WWII, he witnessed a remarkable span of world history, and much of his perspective on those things will be lost except those which we had the foresight to preserve on tape or on paper.
I’m so grateful that he recorded some of his memories, and I’m also glad I wrote about him in a blog post last summer called “Life Lessons From A Great Dad.”
Memories all around us are being lost every second, so I was thrilled to find out that Dennis Becker, a wonderful man whom I met when I attended the NAMS conference last month in Atlanta, has created a remarkable e-course called Writing Life Histories for Fun and Profit and is offering it at the incredible introductory price of $9.95. I have just bought and taken a look at it, and I’m promoting it enthusiastically to anyone who wants to write life histories, either for themselves or for others. If you do nothing more than use his guidelines and interview questions to write your own or a loved one’s family history, you can’t go wrong at this price, especially with Dennis’s 60-day money-back guarantee, but Dennis’s training includes all the material you need to create a business writing life histories for others if you should ever want to do so.
You won’t believe the value in this e-course!
Here’s what you’ll get from this downloadable e-course:
- Everything you need to get started as a personal historian!
- Learning how easy it is to turn oral interviews into printed, published gold for pennies on the dollar.
- Learning how to turn writing simple personal histories into a powerful business for yourself, including the ability to charge hundreds up to thousands or more in some specific situations that you’ll learn inside.
- By the time you finish this course, you’ll be able to either write personal histories for your own family’s legacy or for others.
For this small investment of under $10 (Dennis says the introductory price will go up soon), you have the tools to quickly and easily capture these incredible life stories all around you. They’re perfect for helping you write your own life story, and there are many more among your family and friends who have their own priceless stories that area begging to be told. And if you want, you can do this for others as a lucrative writing service.
Time is fleeting!
If you’re a freelance writer, helping capture life stories is a natural service to add to your offerings. Even if you’re not a writer yourself, the interview questions in this e-course can be used to record sessions with your loved ones. Or record your own answers to the questions and get them transcribed for your family and friends.

Back on its golden hinges
The gate of Memory swings,
And my heart goes into the garden
And walks with the olden things.
