This past October, nearly 6,000 business executives, most of them mom-and-pop operators, gathered in Austin, Texas to attend a global conference designed to make them more successful at their jobs…. as Funeral Directors.
Death remains a huge business in the United States and one of the few major industries that continues to be dominated by individual and family owners.
On Monday Morning Radio this week, Jessica Koth, public relations manager for the National Funeral Directors Association, explains why the challenges and prospects facing funeral home operators are a microcosm of the broader entrepreneurial ecosystem. She also highlights the numerous opportunities for other small businesses to sell their products and services to funeral home directors.
Jessica is interviewed by Wizard Academy faculty member Dean Rotbart and wealth management expert David Biondo. Dean and David are co-hosts of the weekly Business Unconventional radio news magazine broadcast on 710 KNUS AM in Denver.
