Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

When people are remanded to their beds or their homes by a prolonged health crisis it can become a time of deep reflection, prompting a person to reevaluate assumptions that have formed the basis for many life and business decisions. As one moves away from a time of ill health and pain, back towards wellness, it is easy to forget what you said you would do differently and gallop back to business as usual.

The 6-step comeback plan outlined in Business from Bed will help the reader combat this normal tendency. Joan Friedlander (herself diagnosed with a chronic disease) outlines steps that are designed to help the reader successfully integrate their emotional, social and physical healing with the practical aspects of rebuilding their business. Specifically, steps one, three and five guide the recovering entrepreneur to remain mindful and patient as they experience the normal ebb and flow of physical, mental and emotional recovery. The reader finds that steps two, four and six assist with the practical and tactical aspects of rebuilding a business, or preparing to go back into the mainstream of the job market.

“Business from Bed: The 6-Step Comeback Plan to Get Yourself Working Again After a Health Crisis” by Joan Friedlander sounds as though it will only help those who are recovering from a debilitating disease or other health crisis. It is, but it is also for anyone who wants to make their life better by adopting a new way of thinking about how they are doing business.

The author has Chrohn’s Disease that took a real toll on her life, personal and business, for 13 years. She discovered that she couldn’t continue working the way she had been because, although her mind screamed yes, her body screamed no and her body usually won the argument. The author had to learn how to listen to her body and find a way to work in conjunction with what her body needed. Thus, “Business from Bed” was written as the author, along with examples and stories of other people, tells how she coped and then thrived.

Her six steps are descriptive of her process:
1. Beyond Survival, Rising from the Ashes. This step helps the reader learn how to separate themselves from their illness and how not to be defined by it.
2. Embrace the New Normal. This section gets back to what makes you happy. By finding out what work makes you happy, the healthier you will be.
3. Back to Business Under “New Management.” Here you reflect on your past choices and why you made those choices. It also covers revenue models for employers and employees.
4. Recruit and Request �" Ask for Help. This is probably the hardest chapter for most people. When you are ill, you have to ask other for help. Most people, myself included, don’t ask for help because we don’t want to admit we need it or we don’t want to be a burden to others. The author delves into why that is foolishness and why asking for help is important.
5. Slow Down, Don’t Move Too Fast. Although you may feel that you are raring to go back to work, you shouldn’t jump in with the same energy level you had before your health crisis. The author talks about the roles adrenaline and stress play.
6. Build Capacity, Organize for Success. This chapter really applies to everyone. Here the author takes about finding your strengths and playing to them. Structuring your day to get the most out of it without taxing your health.
At the end of the book the author lists a lot of different resources that are complements to the six steps. It includes books on various topics, internet-based community networks, blogs and websites, outsourcing, productivity software, and “low” tech equipment and ergonomic assistance. It is a well-researched and extensive section of the book.

Joan Friedlander really makes the reader reexamine their lives and offers steps on how to get back to it when you are dealing with a health crisis. It is chock-full of information and would be a boon to anyone who is recovering from illness to help them feel that things can get back to good.
