About Us
Christy @ Lumiera Solutions

I provide Business Consulting & Solutions to Online Business Owners who are looking to find clarity, simplify, organize and automate their business systems.

As an ADHD business owner, I know what it feels like to always worry and think about your business. I understand how exhausting it is to stay ahead of every new business fad, and the pressure that comes with all the shiny new things that are supposed to help you manage your business.

More than anything, I know what it’s like to feel guilty… all the time. Guilty when you are on a roll with your business, but your home life is drowning. That ugly feeling in the base of your gut that you are forgetting something or worse, one mistake away from losing it all... Then even more guilt when you want to spend time with your family, but the biz keeps getting in the way.

I know the idea of finding balance feels impossible for you and you wonder if you made the right choice starting your own business!

“Wasn’t this supposed to give me more freedom and flexibility in my life?”  

“I just wanted to make a difference and show up for my clients!”

"Why can't I finish just one freakin' thing?"

Maybe you find your self up at night asking:

"How do I set up an amazing client journey for my clients without being tied to my computer all day?"

"What are the best systems and tools to run my business?"

"Can I run a business AND be the Mom and partner I imagined"?

"4 hours of sleep is enough to run on ... right?"

"How the hell am I supposed to help other people, when I am struggling to get it all done too? I feel like a fraud."

What if there was a way to own and run the business of your dreams and have the freedom to take a vacation, spend a work-free weekend or even go out for a night with your girlfriends?

Why should you work with me?

Because I understand how overwhelming it is to try and navigate ALL-THE-THINGS in my business. To try to keep my clients happy, make sure I get the kids to hockey practice on time, then somehow also find more time to make dinner and go on dates with my husband while not being completely exhausted and feeling guilty... ALL - THE - DAMN - TIME!

Wouldn’t it be nice to have business systems set up so that they are running your business admin FOR YOU?

I am someone who can help you organize your business, set up the tools and systems so you can actually spend time figuring out how to finally feel like a success instead of always changing your mind, jumping from one thing to the next, or worse feeling like you are letting everyone down.

Or better yet, actually, be able to spend a night on the couch with the kids or your partner and feel completely guilt-free?  Sound good? Then we need to talk!

Fun Facts

Family is my absolute happy place! Especially if it includes watching my boys play hockey or baseball or snuggling up on the couch with my hubby watching Brooklyn 99.

I love learning and am constantly in the middle of a course or two. (Thank you ADHD brain)

I believe that personal development is the most important gifts we can give ourselves and one of the easiest ways to take care of ourselves. One that often gets neglected (especially as Moms).

I'm team peppermint tea all the way! (I always have one on my desk... usually cold- Again, thank you ADHD brain!)

I have the ability to remember song lyrics, actors' names and movie quotes like it's my job, but can't remember the items on my grocery list (the one I left on the kitchen counter) to save my life!

Ryan Reynolds is the best-looking Mom-candy out there. (Followed closely by Alexander Dreymon from The Last Kingdom and Jason Mamoa)

“Be strong enough to stand alone, smart enough to know when you need help, and brave enough to ask for it”

Here's how my business journey began...

A long long time ago... just kidding!

Lumiera Solutions started as a way for me to start planning for "What Next" while recovering from a car accident, which morphed into a dream that I didn’t know I had. I have always loved the idea of helping people, spent most of my adult life as an administrative assistant, and am great at solving problems (thank you ADHD), so why not put these pieces together and start my own online business doing all of this, right?

To back up... before my car accident, I spent 15 years, working at Stratford General Hospital. Like most ADHD employees, I bounced around a lot. I worked in the Diabetes Outpatient Program, Intensive Care Unit, Cardiac Unit, Medical Floor, Imaging Department and Post-Surgical Unit to name a few. While off on my medical leave (during my car accident recovery), my Occupational Therapist, Sheri, give me some homework that will have forever changed my life!

She asked me to look at my life and figure out what I actually wanted. To figure out what lights my soul on fire, and after hours of contemplation, I realized it wasn't what I was doing. Whew! Admitting that out loud was like 1,000lbs had been lifted off my chest.

How often are we given the chance to sort life out (interruption-free), so we can figure out our dreams?

During my recovery, which took about 3.5 years, I became really intrigued by our mindset and started on a journey towards personal development. It became a lifeline for me in a time when I couldn't see the end of my recovery and getting back to me. I was forever changed and knew that I wasn’t willing to go back to the job I hated, and the way my life was before the accident.

When the time came to start thinking about returning to work, I wanted to choose a more meaningful life… for me and my family. One that I would find purpose and inspiration from, and that would light my freakin' soul on fire every day!

So, I started helping clients online as a Virtual Assistant and quickly realized that after putting all of my time and effort for a year into this new project... that I hated doing it! But, the silver lining was my want/need to learn ALL-THE-THINGS helped me gain the knowledge to become a Systems Strategist. If you want to know which system or tool might be the right fit for your business, chances are I either worked in it or learned about it! I absolutely love helping my clients figure out how to better manage their businesses, especially with ADHD. Having ADHD makes building your business a little harder, but so much more rewarding when you actually get to live out your dreams and on your own freakin' terms!

The relief I see in my clients when things aren't so overwhelming anymore and that they are able to enjoy their businesses again... that's what fires me up!

The best part is that I get to do this while making my own hours, being able to take my kids to hockey tournaments, and doctor's appointments and to be able to have coffee with a friend during the day (after Covid of course)... All of these freedoms help me fall in love with my job over and over again!!

So, let me be the reason that you can stop and smell the roses in your business, spend an extra 20 guilt-free minutes snuggling your kidlet's goodnight, or set a no-work rule for the weekend so you can enjoy the life you have busted your ass to have. Let me be the calm balm for your busy brain and someone who will never give you shit because you are wired differently. Together we can take your business to the next level... Are you ready?
