Cynthia and Missy have known each other their entire lives. Missy’s 25 years of business experience paired with Cynthia’s passion for people and stories make them the fun “details/dreamer duo” behind My Life in 10 Minutes, an app that guides and empowers users to capture video of their unique life stories and what is most important to them. The journey of growing My Life in 10 Minutes from an idea to an app has been filled with lots of laughter, perseverance, and teamwork, but they can’t imagine the journey without each other.
Cynthia Duke Bennett shattered a vertebrae in her back while cliff jumping on a family vacation in 2012. This near-death experience increased her passion for life and its stories, and led her to create My Life in 10 Minutes, an app that guides and empowers users to capture video of their unique life stories and what is most important to them. A second generation native of Nashville, Tenn., Cynthia is married to her best friend, Patrick, and is mom to their two grown sons, Brooks and Nathan.
Missy Broadway has spent more than 25 years in the healthcare industry, directing strategic accounts, implementing software transitions and training employees, but what she loves more than anything is to travel the country. The co-creator of My Life in 10 Minutes, an app that guides and empowers users to capture video of their unique life stories and what is most important to them, Missy lost her grandmothers to Alzheimer’s disease and desperately wishes she had video of her grandma telling her how to make her chicken and dumplings, or video of granny telling the story of the first time she spotted Missy’s grandfather (when she was only 12!). A beach girl at heart, Missy is a fourth-generation Nashville native with a firm goal to retire to the Florida panhandle one day.
What would it be like to have a video time capsule?
In this time capsule, a person collects video of them speaking about the meaningful stories of their life, what they are passionate about, memories that they don’t want to forget and what’s most important to them. Everything special in a person’s life, in their own words, recorded forever –– on camera!
Now imagine creating this video time capsule with your loved ones – maybe a parent or grandparent –– or creating a video time capsule as a modern-day baby book for a child! (we’re talking to you, millennial parents!)
My Life in 10 Minutes captures the most important parts of your past and present…for the future! It’s all kept in one safe and central location –– no more worrying about which phone it’s on, which computer, cloud or satellite it’s synced to or in which box in the attic those pictures are buried.
And the best part is that My Life in 10 Minutes makes the process so easy. Virtual guide Mylie, and her friends, will lead you through the story-capturing process, taking you to various theme options with pre-populated questions or showing you how to create your own custom story. We really could have named this app “video time capsule making for dummies”; it’s that easy!
Start capturing the stories of your life or the stories of someone you love–on video–today! It will be a treasure trove of memories for both you and future generations to cherish forever.
