We started My Life Capsule to provide an easy-to-use technology solution to manage life’s logistical and emotional events with the latest personal data and privacy technology.

Our story began in 2019 when an incredible man, Kevin, died suddenly. Our founder, Pam, and her family didn’t know where to find his critical information and had just 7 days to prepare for his funeral. Their grief was worsened because they were unprepared.

Pam also experienced the emotional and stressful road to parenthood with personal illness, endometriosis and IVF that included so much administration.

As a Mum herself, Pam knew the problem stemmed from our first breath as a child when parents begin collecting birth certificates, medical and immunisation records, school reports and more.

Through divorce, Pam learnt that with the heartache of separation comes the logistical nightmare of locating and collating legal, financial, health and services documentation.

Now, with ageing parents, Pam is increasingly responsible for her parent’s health and wellbeing too.

Pam’s story is not uncommon. Globally, the middle generation is typically tasked with managing it all; home, work, health, education, and more for their entire families.

Every day the My Life Capsule team hear stories of how our apps are helping to organise peoples lives, protect their information and connect their families. This is our reason for being.

Our guiding star: 43 reasons we all need My Life Capsule

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.
