Julie Bashkin: The inspiration behind KLUTCHclub was personal health struggles plus market forces that I noticed were causing a disconnect between consumers who wanted healthy products and the companies producing the products. I had a personal passion for health and wellness as a result of weight and health struggles in my mid-twenties, and a constant quest for healthy products to aid in maintaining my fitness level while on the road every week as a strategy and innovation consultant to Fortune 500 consumer packaged goods and retail clients.
You see, love liberates. It doesn’t bind. Love says “I love you if you’re in China, I love you if you’re across town.. I love you. I would like to be near you. I’d like to have your arms around me. I’d like to have your voice in my ear. But if that’s not possible, I love you, go. Love liberates. It doesn’t just hold. That’s ego. Love liberates.
