Self Employment When You Have A Disability With Amber 👩‍💻🧑‍💻💰

View descriptionShare

Many of you will know by now Peta loves being self-employed.

With stats like disabled people are 40% more likely to be self-employed than non-disabled people, Peta wanted to better understand why that might be. 

This episode explores being self-employed when you have a disability while also drawing on personal lived experiences. Peta of course shares what it is like for her to be self-employed but also is joined by the lovely Amber from Wheelie Good Perth. Amber is a disabled woman who runs a successful business auditing for accessibility.
