The largest untapped and under appreciated resource in this country as well as this world, are the people living with disabilities. In the United States, there are over 57 million people, 20% of the entire population or 1 in 5 people, that we face every day, that live with extra challenges. Over 785 million people throughout the entire world or 15%, which easily makes this the largest group of unemployed and under valued groups of people.
So we are on a quest to change that, starting with this book. The goal of this book is to empower each and every person that reads it. So that you know that unemployment can now be for someone else. That you can have not only a job but a business, as long as you are willing to try a little harder, step or move a little ways outside of your comfort zone, and be willing to believe inYou.
While you may or may not be able to do some of these jobs, that part doesn’t matter. If you can, fine but if you settle for that then this will be only a job for you. But what you need to start thinking about is how to set things up and delegate to someone not as ambitious as yourself. That’s how to turn it into a business.
As an example, you might not be able to climb a ladder to wash windows. But you could be the one to make the advertising cards or flyers, to get the job. And you could be the one to send someone who can, to wash the windows for you. Or you could have someone make the flyers or cards for you and post them at different places, and delegate each part of the job that you are unable to do. Which is what each and every business owner does. From answering phone calls, to setting up appointments, to hiring, to running errands. Whatever is needed, anything and every thing can be delegated.
“But I don’t have any money to hire someone to get started”. Well you can get 3x5 cards for a $1.00 at the dollar store, and you can have someone write the cards for you. “Help Wanted - Personal Assistant” paid on commission & your phone number. Try to have someone there with you, to ask questions and be there for moral support, until you get comfortable with the process, or just jump right on in. The important part is the doing, the more you do it, the better you will get at it. Don’t get lost in the “what if’s or the “I can’t do that’s”. Remember, if you believe it, you can achieve it.
Believe in You! You fight and struggle every single day to face off with your challenges. No one
is stronger or braver than you are. You already believe in you, because without that, you wouldn’t have made it this far in life or be reading this book. So why not use some of that strength you’ve developed to show everyone that you are something more than they see, something more than they gave you credit for. Change to spread your wings and empower others so that they will reach a little further also.
You Can Do This……….. and so much more. Remember your only real limitation is you.
