What is your business about? 

 

We’re transforming estate planning into an empowering journey, especially for communities like women, BIPOC, LGBTQIA, and non-nuclear families. Our vision at Legado goes beyond legalities. It's about creating a space where planning your legacy is an act of love, inclusivity, and empowerment.,  

 

Please describe your life before starting  

 

I quit my full time job in 2022 because I couldn’t stand the idea of working for people that didn’t have basic respect for their team or people in general. I struggled for a while trying to find my purpose. Ironically if you had told me when I quit my job that a little over a year later I would get into estate planning I wouldn’t have believed you, but luckily I stopped waiting for my ultimate purpose to appear and made this my purpose.,  


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

 

The opportunity presented itself and although I was a good employee I was awful at playing the corporate game. I decided to see if I preferred the option and so far it’s done wonders for my creativity, self esteem, and overall happiness. 


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

 

Technically I’m not a solopreneur since I have two co-founders, but I’m the only one that works on the business everyday so it feels like I am. Overall I would say it’s allowed me to be my best creative ADHD self. There are things I need to work on but I don’t feel like I’m failing the same way I did working a corporate job because I’m living and working to my standards rather than a company’s. 

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

 

It’s my greatest superpower and weakness but it’s allowed me to create a vision and mission for a product that has historically been male, pale, and stale and allowed me to push the limits of what we see a fairly antiquated process to be. 


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

 

Just do it. You can teach yourself most things so running a business won’t be hard. Your biggest challenge is adding structure and sticking to it, but the beauty is that you get to build that structure rather than someone else.
