Self-Employment Steps for Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors: Helping a Consumer Start a Business

SELF-EMPLOYMENT

Important Notice: In 2018, the content of this website was updated and adapted into the Vocational Rehabilitation Self-Employment Guide, a new multi-media, self-directed website. The VR Self-Employment Guide was created as a way to help people with disabilities and VR counselors understand the self-employment process. It provides a way for consumers and counselors to work from the same material while assessing self-employment readiness and developing a business plan. The website can be used by individuals on their own or with the guidance of a VR counselor or a business development mentor.

To access the new VR Self-Employment Guide, visit vrselfemployment.org. To access the new website, you will need to create a user account, but registration is free.
