In this newsletter and on Forbes.com, we talk a lot about wellness. But today I want to talk about the other side of that: chronic illness. According to the National Health Council, 133 million Americans live with a chronic disease. What’s more, the unemployment rate for the chronically ill is 9%, versus 3% for those who aren’t living with a disability.

Hannah Olson, a 23-year-old Boston University grad, is among the 133 million. She lives with Lyme disease and needs an IV with antibiotics and a 28-pill-per-day regimen—a situation that rendered her dream design-firm job impossible to keep. But in response to this setback, Olson founded a company called Chronically Capable, a recruiting platform that connects the chronically ill or disabled with work opportunities and flexible employers.

“Just because you’re sick, it doesn’t mean you’re less capable of contributing to the workforce,” Olson told Forbes contributor Manon DeFelice in a new profile about her startup. “No one should have to decide between their life’s passion and their health.”

Cheers to that!


P.S: My favorite advice on the site this week comes from a longtime love of Green Eggs and Ham: five management lessons from Dr. Seuss books. You do not like them? So you say. Try them, try them, and you may.

Less than a year after Ben Bernanke, a former Federal Reserve chairman, spoke about the gendered state of the economics industry, the American Economics Association announced a ban on conducting candidate interviews in hotel rooms—a pro #MeToo movement move aimed at providing an inclusive environment for women and minorities. “We have a very low ratio of women in terms of our professional ranks and, unfortunately, a reputation for hostility towards women and minorities seems to be an important reason why many women choose not to become economists,” says Bernanke. The AEA is following in the footsteps of other academic associations that have already implemented similar guidelines. Read more!
