What to Expect From a Life Story Professional
Helping you record your story. And share them too!
Life Story Professionals include writers, journalists and people who can help you video tape and audio tape your speaking your stories.
Firstly, expect a consultation. You need to know if you are a good fit. A handshake agreement is what you are aiming for, but we like to write down what we both agree to, like how many hours the project will take, how long it might take, how many revisions you can make…
To make the most of your investment, we try to be very clear about expectations. We spend a good many hours behind the scenes editing tapes, transcribing, and developing the story. All of these tasks are undertaken by the Life Story Professional as part of your project.
There can be other professionals working on your project such as book designers, printers, and editors. And you might need help digitizing your photos too.
We will let you know pricing up front. But some things are extra, such as book printing. You might print 10 books or 100 books. With modern print-on-demand you can print as many books as you wish, all at a very low cost.
