Jan 25, 2023

We had the good fortune of connecting with Thomas Claiborn IV and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Thomas, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
House of Clai Ventures – works diligently to help shine a light on socially responsible organizations. As they clarify their vision, mission, and values, build their teams, and seek collaboration. In order for effective collective impact there needs to be a backbone organization that works diligently on details behind the scenes that help each organization better pursue their mission while also working together for collective action.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Honestly, like our name states House of Clai we being a form of Clay created to better serve this world we are still being molded and shaped into our story being developed. A lot of my work through visionary coaching is the constant reminder that we start off in seed format and are still constantly being developed. A lot of the focus is that we all come from a rich Heritage and have a wealthy Legacy to live.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Hiking South Mountain, great food at spots like Brooklyn Lobster, Farmers Market, Take the kids to Phoenix Zoo, and local parks.
