People with Disabilities 

Q What is the best part of owning your business?

A Interestingly, these business owners' answers were not any different from other typical business owners without disabilities. Their comments revealed that they have increased self-esteem, are doing what they enjoy, and have additional opportunities resulting from their businesses making money. Some of the responses that they gave include the following.

  • "Running my company gives me confidence to try new things."
  • "I have respect within my community and family."
  • "Success gives me the courage to try new things, and now I am thinking of going to college."
  • "I feel challenged and successful, even when I struggle to learn new things."
  • "Owning my business gives me a sense of freedom and independence."
  • "I am able to make money and not lose my medical benefits."
  • "I get to work around horses and drive my 4-wheeler: things I really love."
  • "Owning my business allows me to meet new people, learn new things, and travel to new places."
  • "I don’t have to be worried about being laid off!"
