West Virginia helps those with disabilities find work!

Making meaningful jobs for people with disabilities a reality in West Virginia is exactly what state Delegate Dianna Graves, R- Kanawha wants and has sponsored a bill to help make it happen!

“West Virginia has one of the highest percentage based on population of people that are disabled and we are the lowest in percentage based on people that are gainfully employed,” Graves said.

Integrated employment means people with disabilities can work in their communities for a competitive wage.

West Virginian Christy Black’s 17-year-old daughter Gracie has Down syndrome. Christy, an advocate for the bill, works with the West Virginia Developmental Disabilities Council.

“Society does, unfortunately, have lower expectations about what a person with a disability can or can’t do,” Black said.

She said Gracie worked at a store in Culloden, the community where she lives. Through working there, Gracie found out she enjoys flowers but also found out a lot of things about herself, too.

“She also found that guess what? ... She wants to work, she wants to get married, she wants to build a house, she wants everything that everybody else wants,” Black said.

With the bill’s passage, Christy’s work begins to educate the public about what people with disabilities can do and to change expectations so thousands with disabilities like her daughter Gracie can be in their communities doing what they love.

I have worked at AAA Ohio Auto Club for 14 years now and can honestly say that it has been my dream job. Every work place has its pros and cons, however; AAA's pro's far outweighs any downside. When working in sales, the first thing and most important is that you have to have a love for the people that you are serving be it those that walk through the door or your own co-workers. I am fortunate that I have one of the best offices and we work together cohesively without almost any conflict. We have a great team, both in our front line stores, and at management level, however; that can vary from state to state. The benefits are good, incentives are good if you apply yourself, and the pay is fair. Good luck on your endeavors.

BELIEVE AND ACHIEVE! Get Out Of That Bed. [IBYC]

I'm telling you the truth...

"The power of disbelief can be likened to a blanket; it can cover you up and make you feel so warm inside, that you'll never get out of bed to achieve your goals." ~Edward Alexander

Listen, uncover your disbeliefs and get out of that bed, then everything else will fall-in-place for YOU.

I Believe You Can...!

I just stayed focus. I worked with a pretty good team so that made it a lil bit easier. Plus the owner was very understanding and I got bonuses and raises all the time.

I was with Fedex Express for 21 years. It was easy in the earlier days, but the last few were a challenge. I focused on my customers and tried not to get bogged down by all of the new technology and rules rolling down from upper management.
