SMC Speaker Report: Neil K. Hitz, Author
On July 9th, Neil K. Hitz, a member of our Club, spoke to us about his book My Life Directory. My Life Directory is a simple, easy to use, confidential 48 page book or fillable PDF that lists the location of important documents and contacts needed for someone else to carry on when you are unable. What better way to put your “affairs in order”?
My Life Directory is a simple booklet that serves as an information hub for locations when the owner suddenly leaves this life on earth. The booklet identifies 16 Categories and more than 100 topics of information that, depending on one’s individual circumstances, should be known by those that step in to assist in the final arrangements at this stressful time. The book aggregates publicly available information from government, social, and other sources, plus personal reviews written by others. This third-party data is then indexed through methods similar to those used by Google or Bing to create a listing. Because My Life Directory only collects this data and does not create it, the subsequent result is only as good and useful as the owner desires it to be.
Get Mom and Dad to just fill out My Life Directory as a start to getting organized. Neil is an SMC member and he offers this at his costs since he believes (and has learned from others) the importance of this information at a time when sadness comes to us from a loss.
You can see more of My Life Directory on Facebook or at their website. “My Life Directory” is a local business in Beverly Hills, Michigan. Neil was selling copies of his book at his cost of $7 per book.
We thank Neil K. Hitz for taking the time to visit us and share his method of leaving information for our family to deal with our sudden demise.
