Life Document Storage

A service that guides you through what info your family would need if you died and lets you store it lifedocumentstorage...

What's the big idea?

Our idea is to not only allow people to store all of their information their family would want and need to know in the event something were to happen to them, but help guide them through that process.

Most people don’t know what information their families will need in the event of their death or incapacitation.  Life Document Storage will help solve that problem with our comprehensive database, which will guide a person through the gathering, storage and transfer of that information when the time comes.

With Life Document Storage, you can leave your family answers not questions.

How are you different from that player?

1.  Our idea is different because we allow for active collaboration 2.  Our database & website (which actually guides the end user through the process) were developed and built based upon 10 years of funeral directing experience, which we believe to be a big competitive advantage.

How does this idea scale into a big business?

We believe this idea has the potential to be very big.  People in Michigan, the midwest, America and all other parts of the world have information they both need and want to pass down to their loved ones if something happened to them.  This niche market is very young and primed for major growth.

Why are you the one to run with this idea?

With a BS in Marketing/Sales, a BS in Mortuary Science and being a licensed funeral director in Michigan, I have the skills, knowledge, passion and desire necessary to turn this idea into a reality and grow this company.

What is a $5,000 experiment you can do to move your idea forward?

We are a brand new startup, having launched September 16th.  The $5,000 would let us test Google Adwords & Bing Ad keyword campaigns and allow us to get some printed materials that will be sent out to various professionals in the Funeral, Financial, Insurance and Estate Planning industries.

    If you want to leave your loved ones with a mess of unanswered questions and headaches on top of pain and sorrow of losing you in their lives, then by all means, don’t utilize Life Document Storage!  I mean, all of that extra hassle and hardship might be just what they need during their time of loss…

    A great idea for the upcoming generation..

    As a person who has used many of my nine lives, I wish this was around years ago.  It’s the perfect thing to talk to your parents and grandparents about to save many heart aches and fights down the road.  I wish my grandfather would have had this when he passed!

  15. Patricia Marie Green

    what a great idea

  16. Anne London

    A wonderful idea for those of us who don’t know where to begin with this type of planning for ourselves and our loved ones.

  17. Jennifer De Lamater

    As an Insurance Agent, I have seen first hand the difficulty of sorting out someone’s final affairs! This is brilliant, it will help so many people during those difficult days after a loss. I truly can’t believe this hasn’t been thought of before!  Bravo!

  18. Jerry Rood

    It is nice to know that my final affairs will be in order to make it easy on my loved ones!!!!!!!!!!!!

  19. Michelle Barber

    This would be an extremely helpful service, taking some of the stress out of a very difficult time in a families life.

  20. Betsy Houghton Klingensmith

    What a wonderful idea!

  21. Mark Freeman

    Why was this not thought of sooner?  In my opinion, how can someone not take advantage of a service like this. Of course it’s a great idea that isn’t just based on money. It’s based on helping people.

  22. Missy Coffell

    Excellent idea! With the recent loss of my grandfather we have experienced the stress of not having documents and important information together. Families don’t take the time to discuss or organize this important information and feel this would eliminate unnecessary stress in an already difficult time.

  23. Mitchell Anderson

    Keeping up with all that information is hard. This sounds like it would be very helpful.  Great idea!

  24. Ami Johnson DeHart

    Wonderful idea!!

    This idea will be helpful to so many!
