Journalist Saul Kamionsky at the South African Jewish Report, spoke with our Johannesburg born LifeTime Memoirs founder Roy Moëd about his memories and business philosophies. Roy reveals how a gift a teacher made to a cute 7-year-old boy departing South Africa for a new beginning in Jersey was the opening chapter of a very eventful life.
BBC recently invited Roy to discuss the growing interest in writing memoirs and autobiographies. He also shared how it all started when he wanted to capture his father Jules' stories and sent his personal assistant to document everything. After Jules' book was finalized, he wanted to help others with their memoirs.

Roy spoke about how his father Jules got his appetite for life back when he wrote his memoir "Life Is For Sharing".
