E31 - Sarah Berthon - How to Run a Side Hustle When You Have a Chronic Illness
Our Guest - My name is Sarah and I’m a business and chronic illness mentor. I have a number of health conditions including Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, POTS Syndrome, ME, IBS and Chronic Migraine.
Whilst living with these conditions, I have worked with a variety of blue-chip companies and have also set up both a product and service business. Prior to the onset of my chronic illnesses, I had an established career as a senior business consultant which involved a great deal of foreign travel.
Unbeknown to me, my life was about to dramatically change. My health started to deteriorate and it became necessary to restrict my working hours and travel. As you can imagine, I became lost and disillusioned, but I wasn’t going to let that defeat me. From that point on, it became my mission and obsession to develop coping strategies to protect my health, whilst enabling me to have a successful career and develop a growing business. Having worked out how run a business in a way that didn’t risk my health, I then created a wonderful Facebook group, Entrepreneurs against the Odds, where I share these techniques.
Come and be part of our thriving and supportive community! I offer private one to one mentoring for business owners, employees and organizations and host a podcast where we talk about all things to do with working and chronic illnesses.
