A Royston entrepreneur is releasing a book to help other people suffering from chronic conditions to create a flexible career that works around them.

Lisa Porto, 38, was diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome in 2018. Since then she has made it her mission to support others to set up and run their own business.

Her book, The Chronic Entrepreneur, will be published at the end of this month and will share her experience and tips for starting up and running a successful business.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is also known as Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME), and causes intense fatigue, a feeling of being unwell, pain in the muscles or joints, stomach problems, difficulty sleeping and memory or concentration problems.
