Idea:
LifeSpoken is a service business that helps preserve the lineage of native americans. We provide, translation, publishing, and commercialization services for natives and others who want their stories to be told

Business Model:

Once the recording is reviewed then the story teller will get either a green light or red light on whether or not their story is comprehensible. The story teller will then pay the small fee or have it sponsored and our staff will translate that story into eBook format in both their native language and in English. Once the ebook is created then the author has the choice to either put their product on the marketplace or keep it for tribal/personal use. If the book is successful on the marketplace then the author will receive royalties and the rest will be used...
