Girl Boss Glam plus Old Antiquated Funeral equals..?


In today’s episode, we have Mallory Greene, the amazing Girl Boss and Co-Founder of Eirene. We started our conversation with a bit about her background. She has worked in the tech industry for over seven years and has a great interest in the startup world. Mallory also likes helping people access certain industries through technology. She is the daughter of a nurse and a funeral director which makes sense. The conversation around life and death became normal for her and contributed to her adult identity.

Her company is called Eirene which means ‘state of peace’. Her co-founder at Eirene came to like the name - it is a very sentimental name to them. It is also an ode to women all over  the world because most of the time, women are the ones making funeral arrangements, also act as caregivers. Eirene makes the funeral arrangement experience simple, affordable, and entirely transparent to their clients. Eirene provides a different and easier experience during an already incredibly difficult time.

In today’s episode, I am really excited to have our guest for today because he is one of my favorite people in the funeral industry, we have Larry Stuart Jr. He owns a business called Cremation Strategies & Consulting and works intimately with funeral industry greats CANA and ICCFA. Larry is also a Certified Funeral Celebrant and believes that every life deserves to be honored and remembered.

Our wonderful conversation started with how me and Larry met! We talk about how he started in the funeral industry and eventually became a consultant specialising in cremation. We talk about what cremation really is and how important the funeral director is to the death process. Whether the consumer wants to hold a ceremony or not after the cremation, respect should always be there. It isn't all about money and funeral directors are not all cowboys! Tune in as Larry and I get into it. This is part 1 of our conversation.

How to Grieve together in COVID Times


In today’s episode, we will be focusing more on grief. As we are all aware, thanks to the last 2 years with COVID, some of us experienced grief from a loss of a loved one due to COVID-19 and some were separated for a very long time because of lockdowns and travel bans. I speak with a gentleman living in Isral, Irad Eichler, who has a charity named Seven Chairs now called, Circles who wants to end the loneliness in the world. A big goal I think you will agree!!
