ZSBC offers coaching and consulting to disabled entrepreneurs at any stage of their business journey.

Tell us about yourself

I am a 33-year-old disabled entrepreneur living in Ottawa, Canada. I am a certified business and entrepreneurship coach with a genetic condition called familial dysautonomia. After having started my own writing business, I was asked to become a mentor at a local nonprofit organization. After realizing how well-suited I was to this role, I became certified. Helping fellow founders with disabilities was a mission I was immediately drawn to.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Creating and starting my own signature course while also continuing to offer one-on-one coaching to a growing number of clients.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

One of the challenges is having to be good at everything. Being a solopreneur means I have to do everything. :)

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. This doesn't have to be a big scary thing. You can start small and see how it goes!
  2. Breaking tasks into small pieces can make everything more doable.
  3. Just have fun with it!

Where can people find you and your business?
