Connecting you with little conveniences that make a big difference.
In my earlier days as a working mum, I remember getting to work in a foggy, sleep-deprived haze because my 6 month-old son was teething. I was prepping for what would be a difficult board meeting with barely a few minutes to spare when my breastmilk leaked through my blouse because in my exhaustion, I forgot to put on breast pads. As I barely held back tears while trying to wash my blouse in the office bathroom, I remember thinking, I wish there was someone I could call to just bring me a blouse. That is how the Lifestyle Concierge concept was born. It is also why I keep breast pads in my office. Just so I can close the gap for someone else.
Throwing Clay’s entire purpose is to make your life a little easier. One way in which it does that is to connect you with the little conveniences that could save you some precious time and to connect small, reliable businesses with potential customers.
