Hey there! Bill from recoveryafterstroke.com. I have actually gone to a seminar today to come and learn about how to
get my message out there, and how to support more people in their road to recovery after stroke. And in the podcast, I
talk to people about a whole bunch of issues that they’ve had to overcome or are currently challenged by.
And I know
that one of the massive problems for people is work and what happens after stroke and how do they get back to work?
And how do they pay the bills and how do they keep you know, the heating on and all the stuff that we struggle with

for you to recover after a stroke, and how you might be able to apply the concept of work less and make more. We live in
a world where manual labor is starting to go by the wayside. Companies are finding ways to replace humans and
automate, but at the same time the internet is coming online and we can connect with people all over the world in areas
that we couldn’t before, and in ways that we couldn’t before and that’s what I’ve discovered after the stroke.
Because I realized that I couldn’t go back to my manual labor job, which was a property maintenance business, and
work for 16 hours a day that I did that got me into the trouble that I was in. I needed to find a new way. I also needed to
find a new community, I needed to find people that related to me. And let’s face it when I got out of the hospital, those
