Building a Business That Gives Us Flexibility While Managing Chronic Illness w/ Oksana
Chronic illness and regular health issues can make our lives feel unstable, especially when it comes to our work, our businesses, and our ability to create things that are meaningful and impactful.
It can seem like it’s impossible for us to build something that supports us while we’re contending with bouts of illness. Many smart, capable, and creative ladies feel defeated by this, but health issues don’t have to get in the way of our dreams.
It is possible to work for ourselves, earn income even during downtimes, and run an operation that fits into the rhythm and flow of our lives. By building a simple business that runs on evergreen products, we can have success without compromising our health.
How is an online business a great solution for dealing with health issues? How can creative people turn their passion into a successful, simple business?
In this episode, I’m joined by the owner and the designer of Oksancia Textile Design Studio and School, Oksana Pasishnychenko. She shares her inspiring story and how online businesses empower people with chronic illnesses.
I believe that the real magic happens when people put their talents and creativity together to work on a common goal. And it makes it so much more fun to celebrate your wins together when you succeed! – Oksana
3 Things We Learned From This Episode
- How your creative passion can turn into a great business
Many people wonder if artistry, illustration, and creativity can be turned into a business with stable, recurring income. Through coaching, training, and course content, we can leverage our creativity, teach and impact others, make money, and scale what we do.
- The danger of a launch-based business
Going from launch to launch is incredibly draining and stressful, and if you’re already dealing with a health issue, or even the stress of lockdowns alone, they aren’t a good idea. An evergreen model allows you to work on perfecting and honing in on that one thing which gives you stability.
- How online businesses are great for working with health issues
A scaled-up online business that’s based on selling evergreen course content allows you to build something that won’t suffer instability when health issues cause downtime. It also means you won’t have to compromise on how much much you earn, and you won’t have to force yourself to work when you’re not feeling well.
