It sounds good, but what does that really mean? And how does that work for individuals who may be receiving state and federal supports? The “ABCs of Self-Employment” will help you answer those questions.

Sponsored by the Indiana Governor’s Council for People with Disabilities, the ABCs of Self-Employment is a FREE information session about self-employment. You’ll hear success stories from Hoosiers with disabilities who are self-employed or who have started their own business. These 3-hour information sessions will take place throughout the year in various locations (see the list, below).

After attending, if you are interested in learning more and want one-on-one support to pave your road to self-employment, you’ll have the opportunity to enroll in a two-day, in-depth “Road to Self-Employment” workshop in 2020 in Indianapolis. This workshop, presented by experts, is interactive, intensive, and designed for people with disabilities. You’ll learn about business plans, marketing, benefits, funding, financing, and more.
