Fran Hennessy runs two independent businesses from her home in Leeds. Shimmy Shimmy Yay is a fun and happy jewellery and homewares brand that inspires people to live in the moment and not take life too seriously! Fran has now put her many years in the creative and marketing industries into helping other independent business owner's level up their branding, marketing and social media by setting up as a Creative Virtual Assistant.
However, today Fran is here to talk about something a lot more personal that has been rumbling away in her private life for the last couple of years. In March 2021, at 41 ½ years young Fran was formally diagnosed with ADHD. It's fair to say she has been on quite a journey and now wants to celebrate her diagnosis whilst raising awareness of the positives of ADHD and trying to detach some of the stigma surrounding the condition.
After Fran's diagnosis inspired several friends to reach out on DM's and start the same process, she decided to set up the wonderfully named 'OMG it's ADHD' Facebook group to share tips, articles and book recommendations and offer a safe support space.
