Girl in red dress drinks wine

Hi! I’m Lexy and I am so glad you’re here!

I am a millennial conquering ADHD, depression, and anxiety. I have been in and out of various types of therapy and treatment since I was a kid. When I was 16 my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease (age 59). It drastically changed my life and my mental health. (I’ll tell you all about my mom later on.)

I come from a really high achieving family of mostly entrepreneurs. And let me tell you, they made that shit look easy. I did the things. I went to college, got a job, started a career. Originally, i went to school to become a doctor, but not too far in I realized that wasn’t going to work for me. Honestly, I thought I wasn’t smart enough. (Turns out I was WRONG.) After graduating college I got a job as a waitress which quickly turned into a management position after a brief consideration of culinary school. I spent 10 years managing and opening restaurants until I figured out that the only thing I liked about it was that I was good at it.

For a really really long time I lived my life with very few dreams. I was happy just getting out of bed in the morning. It took a lot of work and a lot of time to realize that I was worthy of so much more than the bare minimum. You know, surviving? I had never set big dreams because I just thought they weren’t for me. All of the self help books. career guides, and business building blogs I read, seemed geared toward people who was naturally smart, gifted, or talented. (And by naturally, I mean obviously. Like gold medal winning and PhD earning folks.) And the advice for the people who didn’t fit in to that category was “hustle harder.” And if you’re anything like me, that really doesn’t work.

I felt there was a gap in the system. No one was talking to ME. No one was talking to people whose minds are not “conventional.” When books were telling me “all successful people wake up at 5am,” and I physically and mentally was not capable of that, I felt like a failure. Like I guess, “success” just isn’t for me. While failure is inevitable, no one addresses that it might be harder to overcome for some of us. Maybe there is a cookie cutter map to success for neurotypical people, but not a chance you can come up with ONE way to achieve your desired level of success for neurodiverse people like us.

I’ve designed this blog for you! I’ll do my best to remind you that failure is ok. But I also know that no matter what I say, it’s still going to suck. So instead of accepting what works for “everyone else,” I think we can set ourselves up for success instead. You’ll find options, tips, life hacks, and ways to figure out what works for you. I’ll tell you what works for me, but I don’t expect it all to work for you too. But together, with the tools I can provide, I will help you develop a plan for reaching your goals (which means also deciding what your goals are anyway.)

Look, mental health is a “hot” topic these days, but that’s not what we are doing here. While I think it’s important to address mental health and speak about it openly this blog is about goal setting. I am not a doctor and I am not providing medical advice. I just want to show you that even if you feel different, look different, or think different, there is a path to whatever level of success you desire. And maybe that level of success is higher than you had ever imagined before!

Stick around for the ride! Head over to the Contact me page and tell me a little about yourself or ask me any questions you may have! I can’t wait to build this community of crazy successful neurodiverse millennials.
