Tip # 1: Stop over-analysing and start doing. Take a stand and run with it.
Tip # 2: There’s no right time to have a baby and there’s no right time to start a business. Try it out, see what happens.

In the Jun 2013 issue of HBR there was an interesting idea: The “Employability for Life” Contract. (Article: Tours of Duty: the new employer/employee compact.) The idea is to transition from the fiction of the “Employment for Life” contract to the promise of opportunities for development that will enhance employability after this “job”.

The Empowerment Zone - Creativity after dis/ABILITY - With LesPaul
Did you know there are thousands of people with disabilities working all over the United States and in other Countries fighting to help ensure a better future for people disabilities? Well, there are! The Empowerment Zone Was created to help people with disabilities find the resources, services, and learn the skills that it takes, after having a disability to help empower yourself to reach your goals and live your dreams no matter what!
I Am a Certified Peer Support Specialist And a survivor of multiple brain injuries, aneurysms an AVM, a coma, and survivor and multiple rare surgeries. I don't think lightly of the fact that there are many people with disabilities living in deep poverty and neglec with out work. I say our time is now 2014!!!
I Work for a Center for Independent Living Called Walton Options for Independent Living which a place where we use the four core services of our center which are 1, Information and referral, 2, Advocacy 3, Independent Living Skills 4, Peer Support.
In these four core services lies the meat and potatoes of the independent living movement, which is people with disabilities powered, community inclusion based, and a federal mandate in all 50 states and US teritories based on the civil rights for people with disabilities act, known as the ADA the Americans with Disabilities Act.
We are fighting for our rights and standing strong and firm in the belife that all people are created equally and reclaim ourselves as people of pupose as we strive to help others to get out of nursing homes, to work in the community, to get out of sheltered workshops, to bring down the Iron Curtain of dismay in disability, and start holding accountable the agencies that are supposed to support us and start taking control of our destiny. Now as survivors as people who struggled and fought for victory and face the challenge!

FOOD FOR THOUGHT:
Humanity is now maintaining an unstable collection of local holding patterns, awaiting a physical or metaphysical integrity to give structure to the future and to show the way out of the darkness. The twentieth century’s leap into a realm with a million times greater range of reality, produced by the sudden visibility and employability of the total electromagnetic spectrum, has brought humans to the edge of self-extinction for lack of adequate guiding forces. Big business and big religion’s inclination for moneymaking and power has served only to foster the continuance of a millennium of isolation, inhumanity, misinformation, and ignorance. Cosmography

There are re-entry programs in every state, county and some cities in this country, the question is are they working? Most re-entry programs consist of job readiness, resume writting, One-Stop Job Services.
The Department of Labor’s goal is to help prison inmates get good paying jobs after
they return to their homes. Our experience has shown that most inmates do not know
how to go about this. Even in prison, inmates can do a number of things that will
increase their future employability. Once ex-offenders return to their communities they
can do more. The State, County, City are supposed to provide prisoners with contacts
and other information that can help them to prepare for release and know where to go
for assistance in finding a job.
But we have to consider the fact that the ex-offender population in this country is and forever will be the forgotten society. Trust and fear play a major role in the advancement of the ex-offender.
Federal programs are generally designed to help people who need a job, housing,
public assistance, and other services.
Each program has different standards for participation with low income being the most
common requirement. There are no federal programs exclusively for ex-offenders.
Government employment is a great place to begin your work for life. Government employment is a good place for retirees, veterans to reenter the job market. Newly graduates with high school diplomas and college degrees should consider government employment to find their work for life.
Whether you desire work cleaning, doing building maintenance, to customer services, to executive positions your government is the place to seek emloyment.
