Running your own business can be a huge challenge. Sometimes it feels like it’s a PhD in patience and confidence, just entering that arena. Running a business while living with chronic illness can seem like it requires a super-power. But many people are turning to entrepreneurship due to their health challenges. It has lots of positives; you can often work from home, set your own hours, take rests in between tasks and make a living doing what you love.
However, adding the pressure of work to a life already struggling with pain and exhaustion can be a powder keg. I have been working while living with chronic illness for several years and in that time I’ve tried the good, bad and ugly in terms of what helps and what doesn’t.
Thanks for featuring me, Michelle!
