For the blind entrepreneur
By Donna J. Jodhan
At the best of times, the path for any mainstream entrepreneur is extremely challenging and bumpy but for the blind entrepreneur, it could be even more so. This does not mean that a blind person should not become an entrepreneur if this is their desire. I started off as an entrepreneur and I am blind and after over 15 years in the field, I would like to pass on a few tips if I may.
First, a blind person needs to recognize that there are additional challenges to becoming an entrepreneur.
Second, they need to identify the right combination of technology and skills that they would need in order to succeed.
Third, they need to realize that they would always have to depend on some degree of sighted assistance in order to have things run smoothly.
Fourth, they should be extremely careful when choosing which associates they surround themselves with.
