Frequently asked questions.

Who are you?

You can find out more here.

How can I tell a story, too?

It all happens over the phone. It rarely takes more than 7 minutes. And usually takes less than 4.

After I record your story, I’ll put it up on its own page and send you the URL so you can share it.

It’s free. And there is no advertising.

What will I talk about?

I’d like you to tell me a story that has this basic format:

If not for [person], I wouldn’t [positive outcome], [positive outcome], etc.”

The easiest way to explain this is to listen to one of these stories. Like this one below…

If not for Byron Caine…“
From Robert Ouimet in Vancouver

I typically have the interviewee start by telling me about the person. We record that opening If not for…” statement afterwards. During the editing process, I relocate the If not for…” statement to the beginning.

It makes telling your story really easy.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out to me, beforehand.

Who can I tell a story about?

You can tell a story about anyone who’s had an indelibly positive effect on your life. It’s totally up to you.

Does it cost anything?

No, this is completely free.

Will there be any ads on the page with my story?

Not on the page with your story, nor anywhere else on the site.

How can this be free to use and ad-free?

I’m covering all the costs for now. In the future, we’ll pay the bills with donations.

How many stories can I tell?

You can tell as many as you want.

How do I reach you?

You can email me at ted@​ifnotfor.​com.
