Guest Post: Making It As a Spoonie Girl Boss

It's been a while since the Zebra Pit has added to our Working with Chronic Illness series. I enlisted the help of spoonie entrepreneur, graphic designer and blogger Kirsten, who owns Graphic Organic and works as a freelance graphic designer. Kirsten was kind enough to lay out a few of the things she found instrumental to building her business and discusses a little about how she manages the needs and constraints of her chronic illness with her work. Please help offer Kirsten a warm Zebra Pit welcome. I hope you appreciate her invaluable advice as much as I do!
