“Fashion has two purposes: comfort and love. Beauty comes when fashion succeeds.” – Coco Chanel


I’m Chanel D. Adams and I write Chanél No. 1 to help female entrepreneurs practice self-care while running or starting their businesses. I started Chanél No. 1 to help other women deal with the stress and pressures that comes from working from home and being self-employed.

Prior to starting this website, I have worked nearly a decade as a freelancer and blogger, so I know what it’s like when you feel like you never have enough time in the day. Contact me at chanel@mychanelno1.com.


This site empowers female entrepreneurs and freelancers to put themselves first.

Chanél No. 1 provides self-care tips for women who balance business with life. It’s for the overworked, burnt out, stressed out, and frazzled women who often put themselves last.

You know how to manage your business. I help you take control of your personal style, health, lifestyle, and mindset. Because without any of these factors, your business won’t succeed.


When I was born, the doctor who delivered me told my mom, “Here’s your Chanel No. 1 …”

(That’s how I came up with this site’s name. It’s a dedication to my mom.)

From the day I was born, my mom always put me ahead of her wishes and desires. While I’m forever grateful, I wish she had put herself first at times.
