What is your business about?


Handmade healing crystal jewelry and high vibe accessories. My goal is to make it effortless to make every day magic.


Please describe your life before starting your business?


I’ve always been in and out of creative pursuits, school, trying to be a SAHM, occasionally having a part time “real job” without much progress or overall direction.


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


When I left my 8.5 year abusive marriage as a mostly SAHM (I occasionally taught art classes for homeschooled kids) with two little kids, I knew I didn’t have the option of “going back to work” And being able to afford childcare so it was sink or swim on making a living on my own. Initially I started teaching high-end in-home sewing lessons but after a wild experience in a crystal store and a futile pursuit of a very specific necklace I ended up having to make myself, I landed on my jewelry business as a viable option to eventually make the money I’d need, from home, while taking care of my kids (who I later found out both have ADHD, and the youngest is also autistic).


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


It’s pretty chaotic, if I’m being honest. I’m juggling a lot of things with not a lot of support. I struggle a lot with “shiny object syndrome” so I have a lot of income streams but not a lot of momentum in any particular direction.


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


I can VERY QUICKLY create new products and build on existing collections. I can adapt to changes in the market and fine tune my products and marketing to my customer requests and suggestions pretty seamlessly!


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


Give yourself some kind of structure, even if it sounds silly. I have always had a dedicated “post office day” and a dedicated “new product day” every week to keep me from losing momentum on the things that really matter.
