How Hobbies Can Turn Into Careers for Children with Chronic Illness

Season 1, Ep. 16

In this week’s episode of The UpBeat Podcast powered by CoachArt, our co-hosts Greg and Roxanne sit down with Stephen Schneider, an inspiring 19-year-old who was diagnosed with a rare heart disease eight years ago.

Soon after, Stephen underwent a successful heart transplant and began to use his new computer to take his mind off the long process of treatment and recovery. He started to make videos for himself and for others — and today that hobby has grown into a career. Stephen’s here to tell us all about his road to recovery and how video production went from a fun diversion to a full-time job.
