Largo, FL – At a time when most of the death care industry is talking about less, MKJ offers a seminar on MORE. Contrary to what many believe, the funeral business has never offered greater opportunity; it may not be business as usual, but there are proven opportunities for growing every aspect of your business.  WHY?  Because most of your competitors are satisfied watching their businesses decline year after year.  They don’t want to do what’s necessary to grow their business.

MKJ’s 2016 seminars focus on immediate strategies and marketing trends to increase your average sale and get more from the products and services you already offer:
