Life deals us a curveball - how do we react to it? Some of the best entrepreneurial businesses are born when entrepreneurs live a problem and set themselves to find a solution. Kate Milliken (@katermilliken) was diagnosed with MS at 35. She could tough it out through the physical symptoms but she felt a deep loneliness and the need for a peer group to share her experiences with. Kate set about documenting her own journey through MS and built MyCounterpane (www.blog.mycounterpane.com) - a platform for patients suffering from chronic illness to share their stories with other patients and caregivers. She invested in her idea, raised crowdfunding through Indiegogo (@indiegogo), joined an incubator and off she went. Through all the roadbumps of running a tech startup and of course dealing with MS, Kate fought her way onwards & upwards. Listen to Kate's story and her learnings in this podcast episode 23.
