Are You Fighting To Build Your Own Business Whilst Also Fighting Against A Chronic Heath Problem?
UK Business Owners Only
My business coaching will help you clarify your priorities and help you to work within the constraints of your health issues.
I know what it’s like when you can’t do what healthy people can do.
I have vasculitis (an autoimmune condition that attacks blood vessels), chronic kidney disease and vestibular problems. All create fatigue on their own and combined, I find that I’m only good until lunchtime and then it’s a matter of hanging on in there for the rest of the day. My life changed in 2009/10 and I’ve had to adapt to my new realities.
Let’s arrange to have a talk on the phone or Skype by emailing me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me you have chronic health issues. There are two options:
- You can go through my normal free consultation process, something I call my Business SOS (or Second Opinion Session). This focuses on demonstrating my skills by focusing on a particular business problem.
- We can have a more general “getting to know each other” style chat.
I suspect you need an unusual balance of encouragement, support, advice and accountability and you probably struggle to get it from those who are closest to you.
I don’t think healthy people can understand how you can feel sick and tired of feeling sick and tired but you still want to live a fulfilling life but at the same time, work within your own limitations.
I Know What It’s Like To Never Have Enough Energy
I do now but I admit that I didn’t when I was younger.
I had a cousin who had ME (chronic fatigue syndrome) and I couldn’t understand how she didn’t have the energy to do all kinds of things that healthy people usually take for granted. My thoughts tended to go along the lines of… Wasn’t she just being lazy? Wasn’t she giving in rather than trying to live her life to the full? Why wasn’t she doing her best?
How times change.
I now know what it feels like to barely have the energy to make it to the bathroom. How scary it feels to go outside the house or to make future commitments because you think your body will let you down. How your head can be filled with negative self talk and how you can feel constant embarrassment about your infirmities when you may look perfectly healthy. How you want things to change but it feels so tough to see yourself making those changes.
I’ve been there. I don’t like it but you have to accept your situation and find ways to make the best of it.
I Don’t Give Heath Advice
Just to be clear, my focus is on your business and your work within it. I don’t give health advice but I’m happy to share my experiences.
We Can Make Your Business Better And Give You More Purpose
Let’s talk about making your business better.
I’ve been through a process that has given me more energy in the mornings, even if I;’m still wiped out in the afternoons.
I also know that we need to recognise the constraint your energy places on your business and make the best use of what time you have to be effective.
Email me at email@example.com and tell me you have chronic health issues and would like a Business SOS or a general chat.
