As a small business owner with a disability, you have the same level of rights and resources as individuals without disabilities. Depending on the layout of your ideal office or business space, you may need to invest additional financing into structures such as ramps that may not currently be in place. There are government grants and options available for this kind of addition to a building or work space. Beyond this though, you need to develop the same business plan and marketing strategies as any other small business.
The Job Accommodation Network (JAN) is designed to work specifically with individuals with disabilities and their family members. It offers technical assistance and consulting, in addition to financial planning and marketing research. Check out JAN on Demand for Self-Employment when starting a business.
There are a host of different grants available for those who have a business or are looking to start one up. With the help of the Small Business Association, you can connect with a wide range of grants.
Marketing to individuals with disabilities is valuable as few companies actually market towards people in that demographic. You can open up a brand new business revenue avenue.
Small business resources are all around, you just need to know where to look and how to take advantage of them. These are just some of the small business resources available.
