Format: Paperback
As a benefits analyst, this book is an invaluable aide for me in developing business plans and corresponding Plans for Achieving Self Support. Dave and Cary take a very complex subject and reduce it to its most simple components. Chapter 6 in particular clearly identifies the complex relationship between PASS plans and business plans. The section in Chapter six on "two sets of books", alone is more than worth the price of the book. Thank you David and Cary - outstanding effort-someone had to do it - you did!!!!

I have not only read Cary and Daves book I have successfully implemented these strategies to support people with a wide range of disabilities to attain and succesfully maintain self-employment ventures. Thier ability to be inventive and to time and time again help the disability community move from scarcity thinking into economic development always amazes me.

Format: Paperback
I recently read "Making self-employment work for people with disabilities." Some of the leg work that needed to be done up front made immediate sense to me. Some was still puzzling. After a training session I read the book over and it became crystal clear. This book makes you step out of your comfort zone and ask and answer the hard questions. Some of it makes you view the world of work and working as a business in itself. Especially, business from a banker or rehabilitation agency view point. Sometimes, this viewpoint gets lost in the shuffle of trying to help a person with a disability start a viable business. Key word here: viable. After all a well written business plan helps start the business off on the right foot. Keep guiding us Cary.

Format: Paperback
This book is a must-have for anyone concerned about the state of employment for people with disabilities in America. Professionals, families and persons with disabilities would benefit tremendously from buying this book. Griffin and Hammis illuminate a whole new approach to developing, running and sustaining self-employment initiatives and do so with a flare for excellent writing. From systems change, to funding and social security work incentives, this book can make it easier for an entire section of our population to work, earn and live the American dream. Buy it, you won't be sorry!!!

Once again, Cary and Dave did an outstanding job of taking on the complex subject of self-employment and breaking it down to a level that readers can grasp and move forward toward self-employment opportunities for people with disabilities! You two are amazing!
