As a former emergency response specialist, our Founder, Pam Moorhouse, knows that being prepared for the unexpected allows us to create a plan of action for ourselves and for those we love.
That’s why we created My Life Capsule – to organise, protect & share what matters most.
With a mission to take the sting out of life’s everyday bumps and significant events for individuals and families – our story began in 2019 when Pam’s Father-in-law died suddenly. Her family didn’t know where to find his critical information, and their grief was compounded because they were unprepared.
Pam had also experienced several significant life events that were emotional, stressful and full of administration, including divorce, where collating legal, financial, health and services documentation for herself and her children while running her business was a nightmare.
In 2021, Ryan Henderson, ‘Tech Guru’ and Chief Technology Officer, joined Pam as Co-Founder of My Life Capsule. Ryan has experienced significant life events where he has been overwhelmed by life admin, including when his father died and when he lived and travelled abroad. Now, as a father and business owner, he has an even stronger motivation to foster My Life Capsule as a global tool to help make all our lives a little easier.
With more than a decade of friendship behind them, Pam and Ryan have come together to build My Life Capsule as a global Tech-For-Good solution to help people organise their lives, protect their personal information and connect with their families to be better prepared.
Between work, personal, home & family commitments most of us are overwhelmed and sometimes things go haywire! Forgotten passwords, lost ID cards, hacked email & social media accounts, identity, finance, legal, career, education, travel & medical documents get lost!
But the real problems set in when we come across a significant life event and our logistical and administrative duties go through the roof. This impacts our emotional well-being by increasing our stress levels.
Significant Life Events can be positive such as getting married or buying a home, or they can be negative such as a divorce, the death of a loved one, an accident or illness.
The solution has two aspects:
My Life Capsule’s experienced team are experts in their fields, each with a vested interest in the success of the business and its mission to empower privacy-first life admin solutions for an easier life.
The formal advisory board includes international start-up to exit founders, deep tech security, legal, finance and marketing experts.
The development team is made up of specialist engineers both in Australia and across the globe and is led by CTO & Co-founder Ryan Henderson.
In 1967, psychologists, Holmes and Rahe, developed a stress scale that identified 43 significant life events that are likely to affect our lives: marriage, illness, buying a house, divorce, death, pregnancy, a new job or school etc.
These events have four things in common – emotion, logistics, paperwork and a strong correlation to personal stress.
In the last 54 years, the likelihood of every one of us experiencing at least the majority of these significant life events has not changed. Unfortunately, neither has the way we deal with or prepare for these events.
My Life Capsule is designed to help families be better prepared and to make every day easier and more enjoyable.
