[2] S1, Ep2: Building a business that fits around autistic needs and disabilities
Topics in this episode: animals, burnout, community, disability, self employment, support animal

In this conversation I talk with assistance dog trainer Monique Juniper about the inspiration behind Capable K9s, and how she’s been able to build a business that allows her the freedom to work around her own disability and needs, so she’s able to enjoy her work, manage her workload and avoid burning out again; and the importance of serving our communities and being authentic in the work that we do.

Squarepeg is a podcast in which neurodivergent women, and trans and nonbinary people, explore navigating a neurotypical world and share their insights, challenges and successes.

I hope that these conversations will be inspiring and thought provoking, open you up to new ways of thinking about being neurodivergent, and help you feel more connected to a worldwide community of people with similar experiences.

I’m Amy Richards, and after being diagnosed autistic at the age of 37 I’m now on a mission to learn more about different perspectives and issues around being a neurodivergent adult in a world that feels like it doesn’t quite fit.
