Transforming the taboo
MyGoodbyes aims to turn the dial on conversations around death
We picture a world where discussing death is a normal part of life, and where people have control of their death experience
Meet the Founder
Hello! I’m James.
I am a certified End of Life planner and the CEO of Before I Go Solutions, a Community Interest Company creating a world where we are at ease talking about and planning ahead for death.
I founded MyGoodbyes as a place to talk about death after my dad died from cancer and I learned how hard it is to talk about death with someone who is dying.
Through our Party, Planner, Insights and Expert Panel, we help people to put their own plans in place ahead of time. We also help you to understand the needs and wishes of those you love.
If we can help one person plan for what can otherwise be an impossibly difficult journey, we will have made a difference.
