LIFE WITHOUT LIMITS BY STEPHEN WHITE

While you might think that suffering mental or physical health issues would make owning a business unfeasible, the number of self-employed people with a disability in Britain has risen by 13% over the last four years. So what’s going right? Could it be the unique and unpredictable nature of disability, which, when mixed with business acumen, sheds light on groups, problems and solutions that otherwise go unnoticed by society at large? Or is it the inherent flexibility of being your own boss that’s key – having the freedom to organise the logistics of work around specific wants and needs? Or is the trend a testament to growing inclusivity in Britain today, as evidenced by the increasing number of platforms and initiatives that provide crucial financial support and business mentoring to those who need it most? Over the next few pages we discover how entrepreneurs Angus Drummond and Ben Clifford, are dealing with their personal difficulties to build unique businesses which allow others to live a life without limits.
