3. Hannah: Asking for Accomodations with Ease

Season #3

 This week's episode is all about disclosure, and how to ask for accomodations. (you'll be surprised at the most common ones) Plus I talk with Hannah Olson, CEO and Co-Founder of Disclo and Chronically Capable about her own experience of Lyme disease, and starting her career. Which all lead to her start up journey, and what pivots she has had to make in her mindset, her working habits and her sense of identity as a person with a disability.
