What is your business about?

 

Create Space Wellness is a safe and inclusive space for women of all walks of life to come, hang up their coat and 'have a rest'. I currently offer Yoga, breath work, guided mediation and will very soon be an accredited life coach. My business is based around the idea that we could all use some time to ourselves or with our girlfriends. I wish to build a community of like minded females who want to reconnect their bodies and minds, engage in creative workshops to let their inner child play again and enjoy good food and group coaching to inspire and motivate. What makes this unique is that it is was born from a place of survival and healing. It's something I never ever thought I would be able to do but through my own diagnosis, the things I have learnt about myself along the way and coming through some pretty ill health last year. It is my dream to be able to hold a safe space that allows other women to really step into themselves through finding time for themselves, with the support of themselves and other women. I hope to run my first women's retreat in June of this year.,  


Please describe your life before starting  

 

I worked as an Equine Vet Nurse in the thoroughbred/ racing industry for a male surgeon. The hospital I worked for had turned very corporate and I felt like a small invisible cog in a big wheel. Where I felt I once made a difference to the industry, my job roll changed and I felt like it wasn't serving me anymore and vice versa. I've always been and kind and bubbly character, confident on the outside but lacking the courage to follow my heart and terrified of failure. I feel that in the past I have made myself very small to enable others to grow and in the two years leading up to my leap into solopreneurship, I felt myself bloom into the person I was always meant to be.,  


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

 

I overcame a very traumatic period of ill health and significant injury alone, but with grace and strength. I had always underestimated myself and what I was capable of. It was in this period that I still showed up for everything in my life, but also learnt to give in to rest, I fell back in love with painting and poetry which I had crushed so long ago, I focused on mindful movement and breathing and nourishing my body and mind in a way I never had. I had to reconnect with a body that I did not recognise and a brain that had been stuck in survival mode for the best part of 10 years. When I was through the worst of it, I realised quite how resilient I always had been and that if I could get through that, I could do anything. And that if all those things helped me to return to the truest version of myself, they could and would help somebody else. At this stage, I knew I needed to work for myself and along side other women. Once the idea was there, I couldn't ignore it!,  


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

 

I am still in the early days and at times it is difficult and I have to remind myself why I am doing it and what I want for my life. I enjoy being in charge of my own time and it doesn't feel like work because I am so passionate about it. It's made me better with money because I see what I'm spending money on as an investment rather than something to give me a temporary high. I am learning all the time, I'm also not afraid to ask for help which is something I always struggled with. Life is exciting and I feel like I have real purpose. Imposter syndrome creeps in occasionally but I think this is healthy and for the first time ever, I feel like my ADHD is working with me, rather than against me. My limiting beliefs are much fewer and the destructive habits that once ruled my life are much fewer because I am truly passionate about my cause and the work I want to do, but also because I am truly living for me. And that feels so freeing! 


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

 

It has allowed me to think outside the box, have boundless energy when I'm particularly excited about certain aspects. My creative brain is activated and happy! It has helped me to forge supportive and worthwhile relationships with other female entrepreneurs. 9-5 never suited me because I was always my most effective at night, so now my mornings are my own and my ADHD 'superpowers' (if you will) kick in in the afternoon, through to the evening. 

 

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

 

Reach out to other ADHD solopreneurs, ask questions - no question is stupid or too obscure! Take the leap, it will of course be hard, but it will also be so incredibly worthwhile! and try not to be too hard on yourself, moments that feel like failure are leading you to success!,
