What is your business about?  

 

We’re all worth more. Whether you’re 28 or 82 we’ve got something to support your journey. We offer remedies and scents that have been alchemized to differentiate in a world filled with consumerism. 

 

Please describe your life before starting  

 

The year before I started my business I had a flat out nervous breakdown. My system was so deregulated I couldn’t leave the house. The company I had been working for fired me illegally but I was too tired to fight the battle. 1 month later my mother fell and broke her hip which led to an operation that left her immobile and she died 5 months later. My marriage was failing, and finding work was a challenge. Mid life overqualified and not willing to take less than my worth i knew I had the skills to start something on my own. 

 

What made you decide to take the leap and start your own business?  

 

When I walked out of My last job interview at Sundance balloons I knew deep down the only way to honour my worth was to follow my feelings and work for myself. For my health and my wealth. It was my only option. 


How would you describe your life now, as a solopreneur?  

 

I’m free to be me. I’ve cultivated a life full of joy. I’ve changed from the inside out. I said I’d run my businesses unlike others and that I would put my health first. I had a sign on the door that said open when we’re here and closed when we’re not. I meditate to radiate living life on my terms not someone else’s. 


How has your ADHD played a positive role in your business life?  

 

I did it my way. I didn’t even know I had ADHD until covid when we were making hand sanitizer by the hundreds. I had to get My cousin to help and she suggested I might want to look into it. It might help in knowing she said. It did. It helped to know my whole life I’d been coping. Coping to deal with my surroundings, and with the narcissist.,  


What's your top tip for other ADHD women aspiring to be solopreneurs  

 

Follow your heart. Apply what you know. Take risks and fail. Don’t listen to the criticism from others. You just might be ahead of your time.,
