Saw the trailer for Season 3 on PBS the other day and it made our day. Loved Seasons 1 & 2. Don’t think we realized that there was going to be a Season 3. Sure glad there is.
Looking back I see that Season 2 premiered in January 2018. So, Season 3 is coming exactly a year later. So, that must have been the plan all along.
Sure pleased. Wanted to share with you. Now you know. I will remind you, closer to the start.
Patrick Young is an educator and activist. He believes people with disabilities must live within a unique set of circumstances–the outside world often either underestimates them or ignores their needs altogether. He created AbleUSA.info to offer helpful resources to people with disabilities and to provide advice on navigating various aspects of life as a person with disabilities.
People with disabilities often experience more frequent situations of discrimination, unemployment, or underemployment than the general workforce. If you are a person managing a disability, this might sound all too familiar. You may feel hopeless, able and eager to work, but with fewer opportunities. One solution is to start your own business.
When someone with a disability starts their own small business, they have the chance to bring in their own income without having to navigate the limitations of a traditional job. With all of the digital tools accessible today, productivity and profitability are well within reach of a person with a disability. As long as you have the passion, entrepreneurs with disabilities have plenty of potential. Here are a few tips to help you find success in your own business endeavors.
Understanding the kind of business you want to own starts with blending your professional experience with your personal goals. For example, if you worked in information technology (IT), you don’t have to start from scratch — you can open your own company as a consultant. However, if you did not enjoy working in IT, you may be ready to branch out into a whole new field — and that can feel overwhelming. If you are:
Once you know what kind of company is right for you, you can begin to develop a solid business plan. There are a lot of important elements that you’ll want to plan for, such as registering as an LLC, deciding on a brand, and understanding your tax responsibilities. In fact, taxes are only one financial component you should learn about because there are special tax programs to assist people with disabilities. Getting start-up funding is another.
There are several options for financing a business, and many more aimed at providing support for people with disabilities. People with disabilities can apply for:
Financing a small business is an art as much as it is a science. For example, you can open your company up to investors, which is especially helpful if you are producing a new or revolutionary product. However, your number one financiers will be your customers, so you need a plan to get people in the door from day one.
Customer service isn’t a luxury — it is a necessity in today’s competitive world. Building a loyal, repeat customer base is about providing next-level personalized service, no matter your industry. Get your customers or clients through the door over and over again by:
Taking good care of your customers is one of the most effective ways to carve out a positive name for yourself and your business. You can have the most creative advertisements in the world, but nothing comes close to the marketing value of word of mouth.
There are a lot of reasons that people step into the world of business ownership, but for a person with a disability, there may be a lot more motivation — and a lot more on the line. There are nearly 30 million small business in the United States, and with an average of 2,000 new ones popping up every day, will yours be one of them?
Can YOU help me get this f***ing point across.
This, I think, is my pet peeve.
