When you are facing a challenge, maybe it is something outside of your comfort zone, which is where you need to be because being outside of your comfort zone is where you are going to find your biggest wins, You are going to need all of your self-confidence to successfully take on the newest and possibly biggest challenge you are facing as a self-employed person with a disability.
