What does it mean to "empower" a patient?
Jack Aiello of San Jose, California is a leading patient-advocate in multiple myeloma. In January of 1995 Jack had a terrible backache. He was diagnosed with multiple myeloma through a blood test. Since that time Jack has had stem cell transplants that have brought him to remission, even if only for a short time. Mr. Aiello's spirit remains high and to quote him "I certainly don't want anyone to feel bad for me. I consider myself extremely fortunate to be alive…have seen 2 daughters graduate with Master's and Bachelor's degrees, and my youngest son graduate from UCLA in 2006 in music education. One daughter does breast cancer research, another trains dolphins and my son teaches high school music. We've taken some wonderful family & friends vacations, and I'm getting more involved with some cancer organizations. I'm able to do volunteer work for the International Myeloma Foundation, Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, all of whom provide research dollars and education programs for Multiple Myeloma."

Scattered? Multiple distractions? Unfocused? This is never the intention, but it is the statistical end result for many. As the start-up or home-based entrepreneur builds their business, wearing multiple hats is the order of the day.
I know this scenario very well. I lived that scattered approach for a long time and then one day I bit the bullet and decided to hire help. BEST DECISION EVER! Sometimes, doing less (of certain things) gives you so much more time (to do better things).
At first, I questioned the logic, timing, and fiscal responsibility of this decision. How much would I have to pay to get the kind of help I needed? Where was the money going to come from to pay her?Training her would take time, would it be worth it? if I invested in her and she quit later? Would she work as I needed her to? What would I delegate away and what would I continue to do myself?
All legitimate questions that just happened to answer themselves as I dived in.
Join Dr. Angela Lauria of The Author Incubator interview author Andrea Hanson on the writing and publishing of her book, Live Your Life, Not Your Diagnosis: How to Manage Stress and Live Well with Multiple Sclerosis.
Andrea didn't realize how fast she would breeze through the writing of her book. In her mind's eye, she already saw it finished from the cover to the contents. The writing simply flowed out from her since she already had the background and experience in helping clients with multiple sclerosis (MS) manage stress and live a better life. She simply translated what she did in her own experience and in her coaching which truly made a difference in people living with MS. The book uplevels herself and her professional work with others. "My head was held higher," she said of having a book to support her work.
