Liz Johnson is a former gold medal-winning Paralympic swimmer for Team GB. After retiring at 30, she has now focused her attention on helping disabled freelancers find work. Last year she launched The Ability People with her business partner, an initiative to help disabled freelancers find meaningful work. The pair launched Podium, a freelance jobs board for disabled freelancers.

 Liz discusses how her career to date shaped her new venture, how freelancers can use the Podium platform, and how they can get paid. She also answers questions sent in from listeners, such as if the rates are fair, and how to disclose your disability to clients.
