Artifcts' Founders Chat with How to Move Your Mom™ (and still be on speaking terms afterward)

If you've been following along here at Artifcts, you know that Artifcting to support downsizing and decluttering as well as building those intergenerational bonds are very much a part of our ethos. So you can imagine how at home the founders of Artifcts found themselves when chatting recently with Marty Stevens-Heebner on her podcast How to Move Your Mom(and still be on speaking terms afterward). Stevens-Heebner's podcast features top experts as well as older adults and family members who’ve lived through it all in the search for answers to the questions most people don’t know to ask and explore the possibilities, complexities, and potential of later life.

Our discussion was wide ranging! Here are a few themes that guided our discussion:

  • Where you can preserve and share the history behind your personal treasures for generations to come
  • Why documenting your most important possessions with younger family members can bridge the generational gap and create closer relationships
  • The surprising crossover between Artifcts and insurance. Make sure you have the proper coverage. File claims faster and easier.
  • How sharing these memories makes it much easier to let items go when you’re downsizing.

Glowing Older Episode 11:6 - Ellen Goodwin on Milestones and Lessons Learned after Celebrating Artifcts’ First Anniversary

Artifcts was honored to be invited by Nancy Griffin, of the Glowing Older podcast, to chat about the purpose and realities of starting a consumer tech company that can support more meaningful and connected living. Co-founder and Chief Solutions Officer Ellen Goodwin spoke with Griffin about creating Artifcts to preserve history while protecting privacy, and how the founders strive to grow Artifcts into a household name for all generations.

Artifcts allows people to capture the moment behind their objects and decide whether to share them privately or publicly. Privacy and security are our twin pillars.

Key Takeaways, according to Glowing Older:

  • Artifcts will be adopting biometric options because they found members have difficulty remembering their passwords, so they write them down. (Please don't do that!)
  • To be a trusted site for privacy and security, there is a padlock on sensitive information so certain fields are impossible to share in error. Read more about privacy and security at Artifcts >
  • Artifcts’ diversity of functionality appealed to AARP Innovation Labs. Members can create stories with text, photos, audio, and video and then connect with others.

Live on Cheddar News: Artifcts Platform to Preserve History and Your Memories
Ellen Goodwin, Co-Founder and Chief Solutions Officer of Artifcts, joined ChedHER on Friday, 18 February, to discuss how Artifcts is creating a platform to preserve the history of your belongings. She also shared her experience succeeding in male-dominated government and tech industries. ChedHER is a special program from Cheddar News that celebrates representation and inclusion in business with today’s leaders and shines a light on the women who are making strides in their industries.

"We're lucky to have outlets like ChedHER going out of the way to give female entrepreneurs across the spectrum of industries and background a platform," said Ellen. "Maybe I should have been more succint, but it was worth spending more time on the question of succeeding in a man's world than talking about what's in store for Artifcts in 2022."
Curious what the answer would have been? So very much!
"We're five-months young, learning a lot through our workshops with the AARP Innovation Lab's Accelerator Program, making inroads into the travel and sporting industries, along with family history, the arts, and antiques, and frankly having a lot of fun," said Ellen. Artifcts is preparing to announce its first advisory board, which notably includes a powerhouse female ... in tech. The board will support Articts as it expands in niche markets as well as implements the latest in machine learning and computer vision to bring information and more community options, non-invasively, to Artifcters worldwide.
