Question: Why should I buy your book?
My book is referred to as the "how to handbook" for funeral directors in serving
cremation consumers. Many personal successes and failures are shared, in an
easy to read fashion. It is a practical guide in opening the door to the true
opportunity of cremation, to understanding the expectations of the cremation
consumer, to not being just an order taker in the arrangement conference but
responding in a positive, professional way to requests for cremation.
Question: How am I different from other consultants?
For one, I've been in the trenches! More than 35 years of owning and operating
my own business teaches me that funeral directors, more than anything else, are
selling a relationship. A funeral home - any business - is a collection of
human relationships. Operating in a marketplace surrounded by competition
serving more than 10,000 families a year, my marketing and operating principles
helped me to triple the number of families served and increase revenues 5
times. I can help you do the same thing!
I like to say that I work with each operation and staff from the inside out…not
from the outside in. It's more than a numbers game or set formula…each
operation is unique and each marketplace and service area is different. Give
me a call so we can discuss your needs.

Question: Mike tell me, how did you establish a highly successful business in such a competitive marketplace?
Harmony at home and in the workplace, plus focusing on my market, says a lot.
But, it is through building relationships in the community, capitalizing on
network marketing, and employing a well trained, motivated professional staff
that brings your business to the next level. Give me a call so we can discuss
how it can be done for you, too.
