When I began this review, all I had was a white box that said: “You´re Amazing”. It took me a little longer than usual to figure out what this was all about. It was only when I saw the end result, that I was able to fully appreciated how meaningful and personal this luxurious gift, a memoir, is for anyone.
Roy Moëd's, Founder of LifeBook, story caught the attention of The Daily Mail. Roy talks about how an exercise to put purpose back into his dad’s life and give him a reason to look forward to tomorrow led to the idea of LifeBook. The interviews for his memoir quickly became the highlight of his father's week.
LifeBook has taken to the airwaves to help highlight the importance of capturing the war stories for future generations. Important historical events and anecdotes of major significance. We have been featured in The IrishExaminer, The Guardian, The Independent, The Herald Scotland and on Sky News and ITV This Morning.
As we approach Remembrance Day, it is a time to remember our countrymen but it has been revealed that despite 64% of Brits being told war stories by family members, only 8% of us have recorded them for future generations – important historical events and anecdotes that will soon be lost forever. Act before it is too late.
Getting our most treasured memories down on paper is something many of us think about but often we don’t know how to do it. Writing an autobiography seems to sit with celebrities who have a star-studded story to tell but we all know we’d prefer to leave more than our photos and trinkets behind for our families to remember us by.
Entrepreneur Roy Moëd set up LifeBook, a bespoke autobiography service, in 2010 with the mission of helping older people enjoy their lives and ‘age successfully’. He was inspired by his elderly father, Jules, who was blind, in a care home and felt he had nothing left to live for. Roy was very affected by the benefits of the experience.
