Resources: Real Work

Entrepreneur Development. One of the most pervasive stereotypes about self-employment is that it requires a business owner to be the "go out and make it happen on your own" type of individual, the one who succeeds without ever asking for or needing a helping hand-the quintessential owner of the American Dream.

Considering the viability of self-employment as a means to economic EmPOWERment for individuals with disabilities, case studies and real world examples can and do prove the stereotype wrong. With appropriate business planning tools and qualified service providers who can facilitate access to credit, people with disabilities are proving that they can be successful business owners and contributors to their own economic future.
