Don‘t Wait Til Pigs Fly: A Business Podcast

Don‘t Wait Til Pigs Fly: A Business Podcast

One out of every 2 adult Americans lives with at least 1 chronic illness (often called hidden illnesses). The disability community is the largest minority in the world. Yet, instead of feeling inclusive and wrapped in camaraderie, most of us feel alone, unvalued and unworthy. We need doctors who understand us and colleagues and family members who believe us when we tell them something about our health. Just knowing the simple fact that we are not alone and still have much to offer can be life-changing. In this podcast we share tips and strategies, knowledge and support -- in other words, hope -- for those who are looking for resources to help them maintain a thriving, successful life and business.
