The business world is a lucrative field with a ton of opportunities. However, those opportunities can feel inaccessible for people with disabilities. After all, the business world was built with able bodied, neurotypical people in mind. Anyone who doesn’t fit into that mold can struggle to break into the industry.
However, that doesn’t mean people with disabilities can’t make it in business - in fact, if you can find the right fit, you can make waves and make the industry more accessible as you go. This guide offers some tips on how you can get started.
Welcome to another edition of Strategy Monday! I was recently reading a blog post where the author described what he would do if he lost everything - money, business, name, reputation - everything. And, I started thinking what would I do the day after I lost everything related to my family’s cleaning business - and was only left with the knowledge and experience I’ve gained throughout the years?
Well, that’s what I’ll be talking about today in an effort that my strategy might help you out in case you’re starting from scratch.
In this episode I’m going to give you my perspective as to why I believe it’s essential that you view the development of your business as creating a product or developing or building your business as if you were going to sell it...even if you’re not!
Now, let me ask you a question in order to try to get you to see my perspective. If you decide - for whatever reason - to sell your business next month, do you think someone would want to buy it? If you placed a “For Sale” sign on your business, how many people would inquire about it?
Welcome to another edition of Perspective Wednesday!
Is there such a thing as a “perfect” business plan? I recently posted a quote on my Instagram account, something that I mentioned in a previous episode; it went something like this:
“While you’re sitting there trying to come up with the perfect business plan. There’s others out there with a less-than-perfect plan taking action and adjusting along the way.”
That particular post got a lot of traction, but something in particular caught my attention.
