Connie Demers is a Photo Coach and Organizer, as a Certified Lead Ambassador with Forever Inc. She is passionate about family, history and the two combined and believes that family memories should never be lost! She is excited to have found a mission where her passion and helping others go hand in hand
Connie worked at BMO for 12 years before she decided to stay home with her children. Having an entrepreneurial spirit and a very creative side, it wasn't long before she turned her soapmaking hobby into a full fledged home-based business. She launched Constance Bath and Body in April 1999. She had a work studio and showroom in her home, had a website, wholesaled to small gift shops and did the larger art/craft shows in Windsor and London. It was the best of both worlds, being home with her children, involved in their schools & activities, but still working in a job that she loved and being able to bring in extra money for her family. Her children grew up and she decided to close the business, 15 years after starting it. It had run its course and she was ready to move on, although she still does make products for her family.
Almost twenty years ago she started on a journey to get her photos organized and the stories that go with them saved. She has created a few scrapbooks over the years, but had found it hard to carve out the time to preserve these memories. She knows how important it is and wants her children and grandchildren to be able to see old family photos and know the treasured stories passed from generation to generation. She's not a photographer. Admittedly, she's not really great at seizing the opportunity to take photos, but does find it much easier now that she has a camera phone with her pretty much at all times.
A computer crash and then a corrupted external hard drive left Connie with years of lost photos from when her children were young. She was devastated. Thankfully, a small house fire did not reach her family photo albums. "I did not have time to grab them, as I ran from our home with our children" she explains.
In April of 2016, she was introduced to Forever Inc and she KNEW that they had something that her family needed! Something that she truly believes everyone needs! Her mission is to bless everyone that she can and educate them on the truth of cloud storage, what real permanency is, teach them how to manage cell phone photos and how by committing only 15 minutes a day, they can implement a plan to manage their precious photo memories and the stories that go with them so that they are preserved for generations.
She also offers in-house, top quality, high speed scanning services for photos up 8" x 10". All other items that need to be digitized are sent to Forever for their white-glove scanning services. Everything including photos, slides, negatives, VHS tapes, old reel-to-reel tapes. Have them digitized once with Forever and never have to do it again!
This is not scrapbooking, it's Archiving! Be PROACTIVE, not REACTIVE........before it's too late!

What is Forever? Storage like no other! It's patent pending storage that is PERMANENT and you OWN the storage, no renting!
It's PRIVATE, SECURE, ORGANIZED, MOBILE and SHAREABLE.
Forever offers a one-stop-shop for digitizing, editing, printing, permanently saving, and sharing family photos and memories. The company offers highly secure, triple backed up cloud storage, with encryption of critical locator data. It also offers award winning mobile apps for iOS and Android that automatically back up to permanent accounts, as well as web and desktop apps so customers can access, edit, and organize their content from virtually any device. Forever guarantees customers who buy "permanent shareable storage" that their photos and memories will be saved for their lifetimes plus 100 years with the goal of many generations beyond. The company can make this guarantee because a large portion of the money customers pay for "permanent storage" is deposited into the Forever Guarantee Fund, a restricted fund that acts like a permanent endowment or reserve, with earnings paying for storage, bandwidth, and migration to new file formats for generations into the future. We also offers Forever Artisan, the leading digital scrapbooking software, and Forever Historian -- photo organization and management software, as well as Forever digital art, printing, photo scanning and media conversion services.
Connie Demers resides in LaSalle with her husband of 31+ years and their 12 yr old schnoodle. They are empty-nesters with 2 adult children, one married in SW Michigan and one in college in Cambridge.
