WHY A PASSWORD?
Perhaps you don’t want people to read it before you’re dead or before you are ready to share it. Keep the interesting story as a ‘secret’ until you are ready to reveal it.
A password will protect access to your ‘Life Book’. Only you will know the password.
PRIVACY AND SECURITY
The info in your ‘Life Book’ folder is yours and only yours – until you avail it to someone. When ordering and purchasing the ‘Write your own Life Book’ package, you’ll receive information on how to create your own password.
We do our utmost to secure the contents of your folder and put severe security systems in place, but we can’t guarantee 100% non-failure. Some hackers are just more clever than us.

CAN I RECEIVE THE WHOLE BOOK AT ONCE?
You may purchase the whole book at once, but unfortunately you can’t receive all 12 the Modules with all the questions in one go. Monthly modules will be made available.
WHEN AND WHERE DO I WRITE MY EBOOK?
Waiting at the airport, to pick up children from school, before your next meeting, sitting at home, relaxing in the park, when you suddenly remember an old tale, anywhere, anytime.
You can always update your info at any time. Go back to previous months’ modules and add info that you’ve remembered in the meantime. You would be surprised how many old tales and facts will be remembered, incidents that took place and names of old friends being recalled, once you start writing.
This is fun. Don’t be surprised if your ‘Life Book’ becomes a lengthy one! You are going to enjoy it. And so would the family and friends.
We have friends and clients, who took part in the initial gathering of questions, still submitting questions and growing their own ‘Life Book’.
