Show Notes

After getting diagnosed with Lyme Disease, Hannah Olson's mind was intact, but the physical demands of a traditional 9-5 job were not compatible with her treatment—nearly forcing her out of the workforce. Rather than accept this fate, Hannah founded Chronically Capable on the simple belief that no one should ever have to decide between their health or their ambitions. Over 133 million Americans suffer from a chronic illness and have to sacrifice their dreams to accommodate their illness. With Chronically Capable, workers only need to work when they feel well enough, and get paid before their medical bills are due. Her startup hopes to bring a previously ignored pool of talent into the workforce.
