People with disabilities can find opportunity through self-employment. Easter Seals Self-Employment Services is a new program that provides training and assistance in business development and self-employment for people with disabilities who would like to create their own opportunities or expand their current ones. A Self-Employment Specialist with Easter Seals Wisconsin can help identify realistic business opportunities, assist in business plan development, and provide referrals to funding alternatives and other free business planning services.
Easter Seals Self-Employment Services works one-on-one with entrepreneurs to evaluate ideas from both a business standpoint and with respect to issues presented by disabilities.
