When faced with the death of a loved one, what do you do next?  Are you frozen in time and just being lead around by what others may suggest to you?  Do you have regrets in not having set a plan for what happens after you die with your loved ones?  Your life is turned upside down and there is so much emotion, pain and suffering from the loss of life that many people seem to zone out and not make the best decisions about 'what next'.

My guest is Mike Boyd, author of How to Bankroll a Funeral Without Breaking the Bank where he teaches us about the language around end of life planning prior to an event.  Mike share his tips about pre-planning, costs, types of funerals, and how to know what decision might be best for you. 

The reason we are doing this show is; in the last decade, due to economic issues, increased death rate or family members being scattered around the country, a death in the family may cause a rift that will last for many more years with the surviving family members.  Yes, death and funerals are not the best choice of topics but they will affect us all, no one is exempt from this event.  Mr. Boyd helps us make decisions that are based on a business aspect while we are able to without a crisis emotional component that may leave us with regrets.

Mr. Boyd has a website here and he is a consumer advocate on Funeral Planning.  Contact him if you wish to have him speak to your group.  His book can be purchased here.
