Why Lily & Mortimer Began
I'm Jayne Harvey and Lily & Mortimer is my baby, a business and name inspired by my two other babies, my amazing children Ava Lily and William Mortimer.
After more than two decades of working for a global leader in beverages, and a career journey that brought us from the UK to the other side of the world (we are currently enjoying our seventh incredible year in Thailand). I reached a point where other people's vision of success for me was different to my own. I had become exhausted by the struggle of trying to balance career development and family life and knew something had to change.
First I took some much needed time to replenish. I realised that the daily pressures of corporate life had led me to be part of the sleep crisis that is so widely reported, depleting rather than nourishing myself like so many people working at this pace today. It is also a huge transition, stepping out of a big business and building something from scratch.
This period of reflection and renewal enabled me to see that my drive and passion for building brands were stronger than ever and I wanted to use my unique collection of experiences to launch a business selling organic products that promote positive living, working in a way that reflects my personal values and beliefs. All made with respect for the environment and those people that make them.
This was the start point for our Sleep Well, Live Well philosophy.
