Anyone Can Be An Entrepreneur! And Here’s Proof!

One of the visions for this blog is to encourage, spotlight, and share whatever might help YOU become an entrepreneur! Using your talents to make the world a better place is hard to do when you are working at McDonald’s. There is nothing wrong with working at McD, but hopefully it is a means to an end. In other words, saving your money from working any job so you can start your own biz is what most of us have had to do.

Here’s our list of entrepreneurs with Down Syndrome. Follow the links, watch the videos, and find more on the ones that appeal you the most. Learn from them, both good and bad, and file it in your brain under “Future Entrepreneur”. I’m sure some of them would even return an email or call if you get bold enough to do so.

They did it, so can you.
