Custom Biographical Stories

In addition to the aforementioned, Mr. Beck also provides anecdotal writing for yourself and/or loved ones. 


Human life filled with momentous occasions and  small and large dreams. The wistful sadness of a parent watching a child clamber  onto the school bus for the first time is as important as your first promotion  at work. Large and small, these are the moments that help define who we are.


As others look on our life they often see the  bumps in the road, but rarely the smooth stretches that mean the most. High  School graduation, military service, weddings and the birth of children are all  easily noted, but who will remember your first kiss with the girl down the  street or how your father taught you what it meant to be a man? Who will know  that your heart broke a bit when your kids realized that there was no Santa?  What memories will be shared about the pride you felt as you danced at your  daughter's wedding and the sadness you felt at your mother's passing?


Joe Beck will help to ensure that your life story  isn't reduced to numbers and lines on a genealogy chart. Leave your family the  gift of knowing who you truly are. Let your grandchildren share your stories  with their children. Leave them the legacy of you.


A professional biographer, Joe Beck would like to  make available the same services to everyone that has until now been available  only to the wealthy. After working with Mr. Beck's proprietary Life Story Data  System, you will receive a personal consultation with Mr. Beck. You will work  with Mr. Beck to flesh out the information that has been provided and will  determine how extensive you would like Your Life Story to be.


Mr. Beck will provide you with a narrative or Life  Story that will provide your friends and family a look into your life, thoughts,  dreams and goals. What greater gift can you offer the ones that you love?
