Start-up costs range $50 to $500,000+, earnings $5,000 to $2,000,000++, skills from knowing nothing to running an airline. Bon appetit!

Forever After

Submitted by John Strelcheck

Start-up cost: Under $1000

Potential earnings: Not available due-to format choices available and costs related to FA product produced.

How to Find Clients: Advertise via funeral homes, churches, nursing homes and other facilities that deal with 'dying' patients/individuals.

Equipment needed: Word Processor, PC and Printer, basic business software, office supplies and "a caring heart".

Qualifications: A "caring" heart/personality.
Experience with death of a loved one. Ability to recognize and respect the survivors' right to grieve their loss. To convey your rendering a 'service'... not just for the sake of a sale/profit.

FOREVER AFTER... Is the "memorial-izing" of a deceased loved one.
You simply gather the WAYS the deceased 'touched' the life/lives,
of the one(s) left behind. (be they human or a beloved pet)

Your 'tribute' to the deceased one can take on many shapes. Easiest
is a framed, printed page. From here, it can be made into a bronzed
format... suitable for a crypt, headstone or wall-mounted plaque.

A unique twist to it is... making a quilt square or similar format.
(suitable for use in quilts, used by Hospice or other support groups.
Another is having a 'condensed' (one sentence) version, engraved onto
a brick. It being part of walkway, at a park or other public place.
(Have one 'celebrating my parents' 50th anniversary, at a local park)

To attract clients, advertise at/through places that deal with life,
death and support. Churches, funeral directors, florists, HOSPICE,
nursing homes and senior housing projects. Once you have a name, get
started in locating relatives of 'dying' patients/clients.

Be a caring professional! Don't give the impression of your wanting
to profit from someone else' misery and grief. Approach it as a
'means' of memorializing the soon-to-be or... recently deceased.

TIP: If done In Memory Of a long-term sufferer, (Parkinsons Disease)
your company could make a donation to it*, in the deceased' name.
*either the local support group, or local/state/national organization.

About You:
Am a Independent Publisher... dealing with traditional Desktop fare and the
'creative' alternatives available.

Am Founder & President of "JSP". It being a source of creative advertising, for any person or business.
