Have you ever been told you can’t start your own business or questioned your own ability because you have some health challenges? Maybe you were told it would be too challenging, too draining, too stressful, too …. Do yourself a favor, if health challenges have held you back, don’t let others who don’t know better hold you back from living your dreams.
Here’s the thing. What experience does that naysayer have? What experience do you have to date to make such a judgment? I believe being self-employed or running your own business can be the perfect solution for individuals working through the too often daily ebb and flow that health issues can result in.
Why? Because YOU get to build your business around your needs, capabilities and even your struggles around your health.
What qualifies me to make this statement? I have 15 years’ experience in doing just that! Did I mention I also have 20+ diagnoses, and serious back and neck injuries that impact my everyday life. I’ve even been told by individuals in the medical profession I should just get on disability.
Lifestyle Choices to Support Your Health & Well-Being
It might not seem like it, but you do have choices. If daily life has become a struggle, maintaining hope alongside curiosity and self-compassion can take you further along your success path than self-doubt, over-focusing on your limitations or paralysis around the decision of what to do next.
You might not get it right the first time. I didn’t. But I learned. I learned a lot. Follow along and I’ll share hope, inspiration and tangible strategies that you can use to bring new life to your life. I’ll show you how to design a life and business that works for you. From business strategies that put you at the center to sustainable practices that make way for the uncertainty that health issues thrust upon life to making space for peace and joy. You deserve to live fully and share your gifts. And quite frankly, the world needs your gifts!
A Moment to Ponder: What is the number one health challenge that makes you (or others) question your ability to manage your own business? If you can find ways to work with that challenge, how could that change your life? How would a flexible business designed around your challenges result in better overall well-being? What gift does the world need you to share?
