Why We Exist

The Problem

Almost 80% of adults with developmental disabilities are currently not employed. 

There is often a tragic misunderstanding in the general public (and even amongst families and supporters of people with disabilities) that people with developmental disabilities cannot work. Many think that there are few jobs, if any, that would suit someone with a disability. 

 

"You can't do it."

This is the destructive message that individuals with developmental disabilities receive daily. And many believe the lies that they’re not good enough, they can’t dream big dreams, and they’ll never accomplish their goals.
 

The Solution

At Limitless, we believe that everyone has the capacity to push past their perceived limits and accomplish great things. We choose to focus on the exceptional abilities of those who are often defined by their disabilities. We believe that every person is unique, and can dream big dreams and accomplish lofty goals with the right support.

 

In fact, many people with disabilities are the proud owners and operators of micro-enterprises that fulfill needs in their communities! Coming soon: Micro-Enterprise Directory

We want to change the conversation around the developmentally disabled community, and normalize the idea that everyone--especially individuals with developmental disabilities--can be successful in providing quality services and products in relevant arenas. With the right tools, small business owners with exceptional abilities can accomplish great things.

Our Founder, along with his team, has spent the last 10 years running a program that assists people with developmental disabilities to move toward independence by starting and operating their own micro-enterprise businesses. To date, we have worked with our clients to teach them business principles, assist in developing their business ideas, walking them through the start-up process, providing ongoing assistance with daily operations, as well as assistance with product and service development, social media marketing and business expansion.

Our clients have started micro-enterprises related to the following sectors:

  • Fashion and Apparel

  • Home Decor

  • Beauty Products

  • Fashion Accessories

  • Customizable Products

  • Information Technology

  • Videography/Editing

  • Book Publishing

  • Graphics and Animation

  • Independent Book Writers

  • Home Entertainment

  • Online Retail

  • Clothing and Textiles

  • Greeting Cards

  • Events/Entertainment

  • Custom Apparel

  • Motivational Speaking

  • Woodworking

  • Pet Care Services

While our clients have accomplished many things over the past 10 years, they are hindered by lack of resources. Traditional funding methods for employment and micro-enterprise programs assisting the developmentally disabled community do not provide the funds or resources necessary for business start up, continued operation, growth, or expansion.

 

This is why Limitless Micro-Enterprise Development was formed. 

 

Limitless exists to equip business owners with exceptional abilities by bridging the gaps between their dreams and their success. Whether they are designing apparel, creating home goods, or performing IT support; whether they are a business start-up, expanding business, or branching out into different products and services, we provide them with the specific resources they need to move their business to the next level.

 

Limitless seeks to offer the assistance of a talented pool of volunteer graphic designers, photographers/videographers, social media marketing specialists, trends researchers and business financial advisors to assist with all aspects of a growing business. We will soon have available fully equipped office spaces, production areas, and packaging/shipping areas. Additionally, Limitless will assist in making micro-enterprise start-up grants, micro-enterprise expansion loans, continued business training, and much more. With the support of our generous partners, we are able to launch business owners into success.
