Starting My Own Business


I'm about to become self-employed as I am opening a dog daycare. I'm really excited and nervous about this but my biggest worry is how to manage my rheumatoid arthritis while running my own business, especially considering this would be a very hands on business.

I'm 34 now and I've had RA for about 10 years so I'm pretty familiar with what sets off my flares - mainly stress and pushing myself (hence my fear).

Are they any other business owners here that could give me some hints/tips/encouragement? I know flares are going to happen but I'm worried that I won't have much support, especially in the beginning (because my staff numbers world be low).

Thanks in advance.
