As a Native American mother with ADHD, my transition from a decade-long career as a bartender to remote work while raising my children has been a remarkable journey filled with both challenges and triumphs.

Leaving behind the lively atmosphere of a bustling bar and transitioning into the solitude of remote work required a significant adjustment. The absence of constant social interaction and the structure provided by a traditional workplace initially left me feeling adrift. However, I refused to let these challenges deter me.

Being a parent added another layer of complexity to my remote work experience. Balancing the demands of my business while tending to the needs of my children was a delicate dance. I had to find ways to maintain focus and productivity amidst the distractions of a busy household.

I’m still learning about embracing a proactive approach. I’m developing strategies to create structure in my day, setting clear boundaries between work and family time. Establishing a designated workspace and adhering to a consistent schedule helped me stay on track.

Furthermore, my background as a bartender honed my ability to multitask and think on my feet, skills that proved invaluable in managing both my business and my children’s needs simultaneously. The experience taught me to adapt swiftly to changing circumstances and problem-solve with creativity and resourcefulness.

While remote work presented its own set of hurdles, I sought out communities and networks that offered support and guidance. Engaging with other remote-working parents, whether Native American or from diverse backgrounds, provided me with insights, empathy, and a sense of camaraderie.

Today, I can proudly say that I have successfully overcome the challenges of transitioning from a bartending career to remote work while being a mother with ADHD. Through resilience, adaptability, and the lessons learned from my Native American heritage and bartending experience, I have cultivated a rewarding remote work environment that allows me to thrive as both a business owner and a loving parent.
