Zzp’er met borstkanker?

Vandaag interviewde ik mezelf. Voor deze column. Als oud-journalist stond het grootste deel van het verhaal zo op papier. 4 van de 5 w’s + beeld. Wie, wat, wanneer, waarom en hoe. Vooral de vraag ‘waarom’ bleek het lastigst.

Ik weet weliswaar precies waarom ik deze column ga schrijven. Maar ik heb lang getwijfeld of ik het wel moest doen. Ik ben als webregisseur een zzp’er die borstkanker heeft of heeft gehad. (Z)zp’er: zelfstandig professional of zelfstandige zonder personeel. En dat ondernemerschap-in-je-eentje is de reden waarom het me is afgeraden de openbaarheid op te zoeken.

De meeste zzp’ers die ik spreek vinden dat ze het zich niet kunnen permitteren om open te zijn over arbeidsongeschiktheid. Minstens 2/3 van hen is niet verzekerd tegen inkomensverlies door ziekte en verdient geen bakken met geld. Stel je voor, 2 kleinere klanten zien er geen probleem in maar die ene grote haakt af? Je jaarinkomen staat onmiddellijk onder druk. Die vrees kan voldoende zijn om je mond te houden.

Dus of het slim is om hier te schrijven? Het kan zijn dat enkele potentiële opdrachtgevers afhaken. Maar dankzij het vertrouwen van 2 klanten doe ik het toch. Het voorstel hoe ik beide klussen zou klaren viel in goede aarde. De opdrachtgevers waren blij met het resultaat. Ik hield m’n omzet nog wat op peil en was blij met mooie, blijvende samenwerkingen. Zo kan het ook lopen.

Dus: waarom? Open kaart spelen heeft míj tot nu toe verder geholpen. Als arbeidsongeschikte eigenaar van een eenmanszaak sta ik er niet alleen voor. Ik grijp na een giga drempel alle ‘hulpmiddelen’ om me heen aan. Vrienden, overburen, collega’s, de moeder van. Ik heb het idee gejat: Privé kregen we hulp vaak op een presenteerblaadje aangeboden. Zakelijk kan dat ook, merkte ik.

Zo ernstig ziek zijn blijft een geval van pech, op z’n zachtst gezegd. Maar het heeft mijn eenmanszaak samenwerkingspartners en mentoren opgeleverd. Stap 2 is: nieuwe klanten. Ik barst van de ideeën, dus dat moet goed komen.

    Hallo, Ik ben ook ZZPer en werkzaam als gastouder. Vorig jaar mei is er bij mij borstkanker geconstateerd.Gelukkig is nu alles goed. Maar ik zag ook mijn wereldje even instorten. Ziek zijn en mijn werk dan. Al die kinderen al die ouders . Maar gelukkig alles is goed gegaan ondanks de zware chemo was ik niet ziek, wel erg moe. Het werk is gewoon doorgegaan. Ook na de operatie mijn man had zorgverlof opgenomen 2 weken. En met de bestralingen heb ik ook doorgewerkt. Ik moet zeggen door het werk en het vertrouwen van de ouders, en natuurlijk die heerlijke kinderen heeft mijn dat veel goed gedaan. Eerlijk ik had niet in de gaten dat ik zo ernstig ziek was. Nu heb ik weer nieuwe kindjes erbij en volgend jaar weer een baby.

    Heel dapper van je. Ik weet ongeveer wat het is. Ik zat net 1 jaar zonder werk toen ik de diagnose kreeg borstkanker. Ik zat erg met de vraag ” Moet ik dit aangeven tijdens mijn sollicitatie…moet ik open kaart spelen Ja of Nee?” Nu bijna 3 jaar verder zit ik nog steeds met deze vraag.
