A storytelling session is the most important aspect of the My Story business model.

 

A storytelling session is a 1 to 2 hour session where a subject sits and story-tells about his or her life. They either know what they want to say or are guided through the session in an interview format.

This can include genealogy, personality, character, pivotal life moments, struggles in life, shortcomings, lifetime achievements, the list is extensive. While My Story is more than willing to capture the ups and downs of a person’s life story, it is the company’s policy not to focus on any negative or destructive stories such as vendettas, threats or gossip.

Important note: A storytelling session can only be conducted when a person is alive, lucid about his or her memories, sharp-minded, moderately healthy and in good spirits. Once a person loses any of these, the storytelling either becomes difficult at best or impossible at worst. If a person dies, a tribute can be made but the deceased person will only be represented in pictures or incidental video.
