Members of the National Funeral Directors Association (NFDA) will make their way to the nation’s capitol for the association’s 25th annual Advocacy Summit, which will take place April 27-29. The 2016 Advocacy Summit will be critical because funeral directors will have a chance to continue discussions on the issues they brought to Congress last year.

On this episode I answer the question ‘Will Facebook Live Crush Funeral Live Streaming Companies?’ and make a bold prediction about the future of funeral live streaming.

A common lesson taught in English classes is the different types of major conflicts characters might go through in a story. One of these conflicts is man vs. nature, and for good reason…humanity’s struggles against the elements are as ancient as our first historical records.

For business owners, this is a terrifying thought.
