Funeral-director-as-gatekeeper-model - does it work?

As funeral celebrants, most of us will have been told, in our training, that the way to get work is to pop to your local funeral director, introduce yourself and wait for the phone to ring. But, with more and more celebrants entering the market does this model work? Does it best serve celebrants? Does it best serve families? If you don't go the FD route how are you supposed to get work?

This and many more questions will be answered in this fascinating webinar presented by Kate and Kate founders of Coffin Club UK and award-winning celebrants. They will share their journey and inspire you to see the role of funeral celebrant in a much broader way.

Kate and Kate believe that funeral celebrants are absolutely key players in helping to change the face of funerals and they'll explain why they think this and what changes you can make to your practice to be part of this movement for change.

Kate Tym and Kate Dyer are award-winning celebrants in their own right as well as the founders of Coffin Club UK. They are obsessed with changing the face of funerals in the UK and making the profession of funeral celebrant a broader and more comprehensive role. Through Coffin Club, they teach the general public all the choices available to them for their end-of-life celebration and also train people to set up and run Coffin Clubs in their areas. They also provide further professional development for Funeral Celebrants and believe they can be central to empowering families to take ownership of their final farewells.

Breaking celebrant money myths

As well as our own individual and personal stories and relationships that we have with money, as celebrants we also collectively have certain 'money stories' that left unchecked can hinder and limit our financial abundance as celebrants.

Do any of these statements seem familiar to you?

  • I want to raise my prices but I'm scared I won't get booked at my desired price, and they'll go elsewhere.

  • I feel greedy asking for more money.

  • I can't be paid well and do a job that I love.

  • I'll never make the money that I want to as a celebrant.

  • I discount my prices almost every time I’m asked.

  • I don't charge enough but I over-deliver with my services.

  • Some couples/clients can't afford me so I should make my prices affordable.

  • I don't like talking about money with my clients. I hate sending invoices or asking to be paid, even when it's late.

The above statements are common thoughts/actions amongst celebrants. Maybe you could add one or two more!

In our April session, money mindset cheerleader Claire Bradford is going to take you through a process of challenging and understanding why you feel how you feel about money when it comes to being a celebrant and running your celebrant business. This session will help you to identify what statements ring true for you and what you can do to reframe your negative ways of thinking.

Claire's session is a great standalone session or good preparation for Natasha's practical money session in May.

The practical side of making money as a celebrant

In this session, Natasha is going to look at the practical side of making money as a celebrant. How can we make sure that we are making the most out of our celebrant business financially, as well as making sure that we haven't got lots of financial leaks in our business too?

  • Is your pricing too low?
  • Is your pricing too high?
  • Are you over-giving and over-delivering, ie doing too much for not enough?
  • Have you got a clear idea of how much money you make and spend as a celebrant?
  • Have you got a clear idea of how much money you want/need to make as a celebrant?
  • Are there money leaks in your business that need plugging up?

Natasha's webinar will look at some of the key areas regarding money as a celebrant and will help you to identify where they could make improvements and changes for better-earning potential, better money management, as well as weeding out elements that cost you a lot of time and money in your business.

I wouldn't have a celebrant business I believe if it wasn't for the Celebrants Collective. In the beginning, when you are starting out, it's a highly affordable way of access to priceless resources, reams of useful information and, thanks to the many wise and wonderful celebrants in the group, the benefit of very learned and experienced celebrants. All this combined with the never ending support, kindness and know-how. If you are a celebrant and you are not a part of the Collective, you are missing out BIG TIME!

The Celebrants Collective has given me the confidence to approach this job as a 'real' business, introducing me to marketing strategies and business planning in a way that feels organic and part of my work, as opposed to an uncomfortable extra. I also have a network of incredibly friendly folks who are so willing to offer advice, support and encouragement and access to a heap of professional development resources that are encouraging me to expand my own knowledge and up the value of the service I offer.

I joined the Celebrants Collective initially as a new starter celebrant looking for hints, tips and advice. Through the friendship, support and sound advice it has given me much more confidence, without feeling pressured to deliver. It's enabled me to take what I need and apply it to my celebrant business in my own way. The webinars are great, down to earth, honest and very well put together, with some brilliant guest speakers. I love it!
