We are excited to have Kyle Tevlin, the founder, and creator of I Want a Fun Funeral, join us today. Kyle was inspired to create this unique funeral planning service after attending several funerals that left her feeling underwhelmed and disheartened. She noticed that many of these events felt somber and lacked the personal touch that she believed would better honor the lives of those being remembered. This inspired her to launch her business, a service that helps people plan personalized and creative funerals for themselves.

In this episode, Kyle shares her insights on new funeral trends, effective strategies for communicating your final wishes to your family, and the advantages of planning a funeral that is meaningful to who you are. Join us as we explore new ways to think about end-of-life planning.


Here’s some of what we’ll discuss in this episode:
